Rub-on snowboard and ski wax has been a game-changer for me.
Whilst I initially used it in emergency situations only, things quickly got out of hand.
Last season I found myself using almost exclusively rub-on wax. I may have only done a couple of hot waxes in the whole season! Shocking right?
What this means is that I have tested a helluva lot of rub-on snowboard wax!
I therefore compiled an official list of the best rub on snowboard wax.
The 3 Best Rub On Snowboard Waxes
- Super quick to apply
- Safe for the environment
- Made by snowboarders
- Available in 3 temp choices
- Proven quality (Dakine).
- Free base scraper!
- Doubles up as a hot wax.
- Large block - should last a while.
The above are all super solid options. I won’t bore you with too much detail, but the Zumwax option is the best rated and is the easiest to use. The wax is slightly softer and so is easier to spread, even at colder temperatures. It also comes with a cork polisher on the lid.
The benefit of the other two options is that they can also be used as hot wax. This means you can pick up a handful of these and use it as your go-to wax for the whole season.
I have a soft spot for The Dude wax as it smells awesome and the branding is top-notch. In truth, the Dakine probably lasted longer though. It’s a difficult choice!
Thanks for reading about the best rub on snowboard wax!
Rather than tell you about the multiple sub-optimal products that didn’t make the list, I’m going to keep this article short and sweet.
