Mask for ski waxing Find the right mask for your level
It doesn't matter if you wax your skis often or rarely: Always wear a mask when working in the waxing cabin. This article describes the different Swix waxing masks.
The waxing mask is a low-cost investment in your own health when you prepare skis. We recommend that you always use a mask when waxing skis, especially when working with heat or brushes. Although we at Swix have removed harmful fluorine from all ski waxes, both smoke and particles are formed that you should avoid inhaling. This is what you want to protect yourself against.
Note that the filter in the waxing mask must be changed every year. Read more about it in this article.
Swix sells three different masks, based on level and price range. Here is an overview to help you find the right mask for your level.
