DPS has created a new wax that uses a compound and process that they say you’ll never have to wax your skis again. Instead of creating a layer of slick material that sits on the base of a ski, DPS’ Phantom wax penetrates into the base material of the ski, creating a faster and harder base. According to DPS, the one-time application offers permanent performance across all temperature ranges and snow types for the lifetime of your skis and can be applied to a ski at any stage in its life.

Bonus: Phantom doesn't contain toxic chemicals that harm lungs, the watershed, or flora and fauna (as traditional wax can). Phantom starts shipping in December, but you can pre-order through a Kickstarter to try it out.
