PHANTOM Permanent Waxless Glide

PHANTOM is a permanent, one-time application base treatment that provides increased glide across all conditions.  PHANTOM's sophisticated, timed polymerization process permanently penetrates deep into the base material with powerful go-fast fluoro compositions designed to operate across all snow temperatures.  Even when ski or snowboard goes into shiop for stone grinding, the next fresh layer of PHANTOM is exposed - ready to glide.
