Lindsey Jacobellis Takes Spot on WEND Wax World Team
Wax Research, the worlds number one action sports hi-performance wax manufacturer, welcomes Lindsey Jacobellis to its WEND snow wax World Team roster.
Jacobellis, a two-time Olympian with a silver medal at Torino, three-time SBX World Cup Champion, and seven-time X Games Gold medalist, joins the high energy WEND Team. At 26 years Jacobellis is one of the most successful women snowboarders of all time with a record setting twenty-five World Cup victories in SBX & Halfpipe.
“The guys at Wax Research have been nothing but great to me over the years with regards to all my surfing needs”, said Jacobellis. “When they approached me regarding WEND Snow Wax it was logical that I would jump at the chance to be on the team. Couple that with their commitment to helping the Breast Cancer cause, and it adds up to a great partnership. I look forward to doing my best to promote their efforts.”
“We’ve keep Lindsey supplied with Sticky Bumps surf wax and accessories for years,” noted John Dahl, President of Wax Research. “It’s only natural, as our product evolved into a hi-performance snow wax, to have her part of our WEND program. Lindsey is the icing on the cake of a phenomenal group of riders that make up our world team.”
Jacobellis is a supporter of Breast Cancer research, which Wax Research and WEND support as well. Her Mother was diagnosed with breast cancer but thanks to early detection was able to defeat it. She has partnered with the non-profit Keep A Breast Foundation to raise funds for Breast Cancer research.
WEND is a brand of snow waxes and accessories manufactured by Wax Research. Although Wax Research has produced snow waxes for many well-known international snow brands the WEND snow wax line was launched in 2003. It has evolved to incorporate natural components including palm, plant and mineral waxes. A new super slick oil from flower seed that acts as a natural silicone has been added to the formula after extensive testing in the U.S., Peru and New Zealand. WEND continues to offer a sophisticated line of racing waxes, overlays, and a full range of shop waxes, retail bars and pastes. The strength of WEND comes from the input received from its team of international star athletes.
