Vauhti Grip Powder is a topcoat comprised of fluorocarbons and extremely fine graphite. This magic dust is suitable for all weather conditions and is made to coat kick wax and klisters. Vauhti Grip Powder improves glide without reducing the grip (which is clearly ideal). The coating improves the elasticity of the kick wax, which actually improves the grip and reduces the risk of "catching" on the snow. Yup, kind of helps in every possible way.
