Fluoro-Free Rule NC Sanctioned Races

2021-22 Season

by Nordiq Canada, September 9, 2021

The Nordiq Canada fluoro policy for the 2021-22 season will see a full fluoro ban applied for all Nordiq Canada sanctioned events, except for those events that also have a FIS sanction.  However, fluorinated kick wax will be exempt from the fluoro ban policy.


What does the ban include?
The fluoro-free rule applies to all Tier 2 level competitions (e.g., provincial cups, provincial champs). This means that:

  • High Fluoro (HF), Medium Fluoro (MF) or Low Fluoro (LF) glide waxes, including HF, MF or LF powders, pucks, blocks and liquids are NOT permitted
  • Cold-weather powder additives and hardeners containing fluoros are NOT permitted
  • Fluorinated grip powders are NOT permitted

Exemptions from the ban

  • FIS sanctioned competitions (Tier 1 – NorAm, FIS Regional Cup, Canada Cup and Canadian Ski Championships)
  • All kick wax, specifically hard wax and klister
