Rex was founded in 1952, and the company’s first product was the official torch cartridge for the Helsinki Olympics. Since then, our mission has been to produce high-quality chemical products for sports at the highest level.
Trusted in skiing circles worldwide
Rex is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of ski waxes. We continuously collaborate with the world’s best national ski teams to develop new and even better ski waxes. Rex is particularly known for its race waxes, widely used in the Cross-Country Skiing World Cup by all leading teams. Rex race support travels around the world during the winter, testing and servicing the world’s best national ski teams.
Founded in 1952, Rex has an uninterrupted history of over seventy years in ski wax manufacturing. The kings of ski wax are born in our factory in the kingdom of Hartola. Rex is a Finnish family-owned company with deep-rooted traditions in Finnish winter sports spanning multiple generations.
Continuous product development in a changing skiing world
The world of ski glide wax has undergone significant changes in recent years, with liquid products largely replacing hot wax. Our commitment to product development has been continuous, and our product range has been rejuvenated at an unprecedented pace.
Rex’s liquid glides and cleaning agent, Glide Cleaner, have gained great popularity and changed how athletes and competitors wax and maintain their skis. Ski glide waxing in competitive skiing is evolving, and Rex’s fluoropowders, replacing N-Kinetic glide coatings, have been in use in World Cup races even before FIS’s fluorine ban. Rex offers a comprehensive range of both PFOA-free “Future Fluor” glide waxes and coatings, as well as fluorine-free N-Kinetic products.
Skin skis have brought many new people to the ski tracks, and Rex’s cleaning and maintenance products cover all the needs of skin ski users.
Smooth chains for cyclists
Our bike product range, launched in 2015, has gained comprehensive distribution in Finland. The innovative use of ski wax technology and a focus on products for demanding hobbyists and professionals have resulted in numerous Finnish championships and a good reputation among cyclists using Rex chain oil. Rex leads the chain lubrication development with Black Diamond chain oil and hot wax, both proven to be the best in independent tests. The rapidly growing “Rex Bike Division” has opened new doors for Rex in different countries and continents, even securing a Tour de France stage victory!
