Success Story: Hightech for Quick Starters

TOKO users benefit from functional filaments

Since TOKO was founded over 100 years ago, the company has been the specialist for surfaces and produces various waxes – from beginner’s products to absolute high-tech waxes.

For decades TOKO has been producing wax that makes skis and boards faster for beginners and professionals alike. There is a whole science behind the question of which wax is suitable for which conditions and how it is applied. Used correctly, skis and boards glide easier with TOKO wax.

The success proves TOKO right. With six victories and one podium place, the Swiss and TOKO athlete Fanny Smith dominated the 2019 season in the women’s skicross. She won gold in the final in Veysonnaz! Speed ski legend Simone Origone also achieved a great result: On March 22, 2019, he became world champion for the sixth time in Vars – at 228.862 km/h!

sense of victory

In close cooperation with TOKO, the team of zeintra AG developed three new, unique brushes with functional filaments from smartfilaments AG for the incorporation of TOKO wax. The wax filament brings a unique USP to the ski and makes it even faster. “We want to bring something forward. We love it when our partners deliver promptly and in excellent quality. Without any ifs and buts”, says Udo Raunjak, Head of Research & Development at TOKO. The quality standards in ski racing are high.

Last season the first service people took advantage of the zeintra innovation. “A good feeling is crucial for success. The athletes, whose skis were treated with the zeintra brush, smiled in the starting house. They felt safe,” says Raunjak. The ski, prepared with TOKO wax and a zeintra brush made of wax filament, glides faster. A model of success!

“A good feeling is crucial for success”

In the TOKO world this was made possible by the use of smartfilaments! We wish TOKO and all athletes much success and unforgettable moments!
