Apply Once, Glide Forever.
What is PHANTOM Glide?
PHANTOM Glide is a permanent, high-performance base treatment for skis and snowboards that increases hydrophobicity and improves glide performance across a variety of snow conditions.
PHANTOM Glide is not wax.
PHANTOM Glide differs from traditional wax because wax is not permanent. Wax is a temporary glide solution that functions only by coating the top layer of your base. After just a few runs, traditional wax wears off and glide performance diminishes.
How does it work?
With it’s patent-pending polymer technology, PHANTOM Glide uses microscopic short chain compounds to penetrate and diffuse into the unstructured sections of your ski or snowboard base. Think of it as water filling a jar of marbles, just on a molecular level. Traditional wax is not capable of doing this because wax molecules are too large to move through the base material.
After PHANTOM Glide has been absorbed into the base, UV light is used to activate the curing process, permanently bonding PHANTOM Glide to the base material. This can be accomplished using a PHANTOM Glide Cure Station or natural, outdoor sunlight. After a single finishing pass with a roto brush or PHANTOM Glide Polishing Pad, your base(s) are fully treated and ready to glide.
How To Apply PHANTOM Glide™
Why do I need it?
Simply put, PHANTOM Glide makes skiing and snowboarding more fun. Beyond that, there are three key benefits of PHANTOM Glide:
Permanence: Waxing skis and snowboards is time-consuming and for optimal results, it needs to be done frequently. With just one application of PHANTOM Glide, your bases are effectively treated, and will provide you with increased glide for the life of your ski or board. Continuously buying and dripping wax onto your bases gets expensive, especially if you’re getting it done by a shop a few times a season. PHANTOM Glide is a one-time investment that pays for itself each time you go skiing or snowboarding.
Performance: Increased glide allows for better control and predictability on snow, creating an overall better experience on the mountain. It’s a game changer for both skiers and snowboarders.
Environment: PHANTOM Glide possesses no environmental harm, and it doesn’t wear off in the snow and end up downstream. We pride ourselves on being an industry leader with our eco-conscious base treatment.
In The MediaWhat the experts are saying about PHANTOM Glide™
"PHANTOM delivers. I have used it in subzero cold, above freezing conditions and everything in between. And I can confidently say it offers good, consistent glide across all conditions.”
“I can confidently say that it works. I’m truly blown away. Whereas traditional waxes would wear off completely after a few days, PHANTOM kept its superb performance day after day, week after week. I never observed any degradation of its performance.”
“As soon as my ski tips are pointed downhill, the skis feel just as fast as the waxed versions. Making turns and transitioning from cold, shady snow into hot, melting slush during the same run did not affect speed, and the skis accelerated into and out of every turn.”
