The Swix Horse Hair Oval Brush is an anti-static brush that catches the last wax particles from the bases of skis after the initial brushing. This brush performs at its best when it is used exclusively as the second brush when applying Cera F ski wax products. A horse hair base brush also works great as an all around wax polishing brush. The oval design and hand strap allows for easy hand over hand use, so you know your pressure will be steady and even when passing down the ski. Swix recommends 5-10 tip to tail strokes with this base brush for best results.
