About Us

Wax Research since1971 

As a leader in the global wax market, Wax Research unwinds traditional logic as witnessed in the performance of their trailblazing formulas. Founded in Encinitas in 1971, Wax Research is recognized by the international sport community as one of the original endemic surf accessory companies.  This group of like-minded people is dedicated to that vital spark of individualism and adventure.  A grassroots manufacturer, every handcrafted piece of high quality surf, ski and bike wax is poured in their California factory.

WEND produces a sophisticated line of Meadowfoam ski waxes including racing waxes, overlays, performance bars, pastes, and a full range of tuning shop waxes. Our Meadowfoam Cleaner/Conditioner is the leader in the base cleaning and conditioning categories and our key component in our highly effective waxing process. These proprietary formulas are the result of extensive testing around the globe and in different snow types while working with a laboratory that has over 40 years of experience in developing performance snow wax for the world’s top ski & snowboard athletes – most notably the world's fastest All-Natural Non-Fluoro Race waxes.



WEND's latest achievement is the development of our bike chain cleaner and lubricant.  Visit our bike product site at bike.wendperformance.com.
