About Us

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 family 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.  

WEND Wax‐On is the first ever “rub‐on”, wax based, chain lubricant. Wax‐On not only keeps your chain clean, its friction reducing additives make for an extremely quiet and efficient drive-train. Wax‐On is quiet, quick, and clean. It is no secret that the most efficient chain lubrication method to date is immersing a chain into a vat of molten paraffin. However, this method is time consuming, temporary, and dangerous. WEND Waxworks set out to create a lube that would perform equal to or better than hot waxing and that would be easy to apply. After two years of development, the R&D at WEND has come up with Wax‐On. Wax‐On is a sophisticated paraffin based formula that includes proprietary friction reducers as well as proven lubricants such as Zinc and Teflon. The application is a cinch as the user simply rubs the wax onto the chains rollers, resulting in a race ready chain in seconds. Overall user satisfaction is high due to the ease of use, product cleanliness, and lubrication performance. 

WEND WAX‐OFF is much more than just a chain cleaner. Wax‐Off is a penetrating liquid wax additive that cleans. The cleaner quickly cuts through wax, oil, and dirt leaving your chain sparkling, while the wax penetrates and lubes. WEND Wax‐Off is the perfect way to clean your chain prior to using Wax‐On and aids in extending the life of your drive-train. We are confident once you make the change to WEND you will never look back.
