The Swix Brush Program is subject to continuous development based on feedback from the Swix Racing Service Department that serves World Cup technicians, athletes, and teams throughout each season. As a result, Swix customers are guaranteed the highest quality products taking into account the latest developments and methods of World Cup technicians.
Swix Brushes are divided into three main categories of use, plus the economy line.
The economy brushes are multipurpose brushes made as an affordable alternative for the sport skier. For each of these categories the Swix brushes are carefully selected with special qualities in mind. Swix selects not only the specific material for each purpose, but also the certain length of each fiber, a certain thickness and stiffness for each fiber, and lastly, the bristle density. By specifying the characteristics thoroughly, each of the Swix brushes has its own "personality" and fulfils a specific purpose.
Most of the Swix brushes come in two sizes. The smaller rectangular are easy in use and convenient when travelling. The larger oval brushes are suited for efficiency and comfort when preparing multiple skis.
