Welcome to Javelin Performance Coatings
At Javelin, the study of the environment of a surface is a most fascinating area. From our point of view, it is the intersection of mechanical engineering and materials science. Our expertise in tribology, the science of of interacting surfaces in motion, allows us to control the critical interface between the athlete and their environment. This is where the athlete imparts power, change of direction and balance. For every action, the reaction can be better controlled with products we’ve developed at Javelin.
Working with Javelin are a combination of engineers, chemists, athletes, coaches and industry enthusiasts combining their in-depth knowledge of the mechanics of each sport.

What people say about us
Ever since i started racing at a serious level i always thought no matter what wax i use, every single one would have the same effect. After multiple attempts at finding the right wax the long search finally came to an end at the start of this year my first year U16 as an NCO athlete. At first i was a little skeptical with it because of the way you apply it, especially since the layer on my base was so thin. After three races there is a huge difference in the way my skis glide and how freely they glided. Now that i have tried it... There is no going back!
"In skiing we often get stuck in a rut and for wax/coating technology it has been the same way of thinking for too long. As a ski coach with 20 years of experience and a global perspective it was nice to come home to Canada and find someone thinking outside of the box and producing a product that is FAST. I've used this in local races and on the world cup and it has held its own and surpassed the best skiers and my own expectations. Not only is it easier to travel with; it has less waste and runs like a dream. Nice job Javelin!"
"Javelin simply makes a faster, better product than anyone right now. The performance and speed is undeniable and makes a huge difference on the hill. Off the hill it is easy to use and quick to tune. Its a great product and I would recommend everyone to try and ski it and see the difference it makes."
"I have been a loyal Javelin athlete since 2012 and all I can say is wow! When I first started using their products, right away I noticed that my skis were gliding much faster than they once were. It’s been three years and I am still driven speechless by the fact that they continuously come up with awesome new products. I owe Javelin a lot of credit for allowing me to go even faster than I ever thought possible. Amazing products!"
"Javelin provides an incredible performance with durability to match, its extremely easy to "hit the right wax" as the product is much more simple than all the other high end waxes. Canada ski cross has been on the podium or near thanks to Javelin. We do not need to guess with Javelin." Rod Honey, Jesse Clarkson, James Perks & Helmut SkiCross
"We have had the fortune of using Javelin for the last 3 World Cup Seasons. The Javelin product has helped us bring nothing but success though-out the years. From World Cup champions and X Games gold, to Olympic golds and silvers. Thanks Javelin for the awesome results!"
"I had the benefit of using Javelin wax last year at the Fortune Cup. With new skis I qualified third and felt my skis were glued on the snow....I left my skis to Mike and he did his magic with his Javelin wax and I went on to win in the final. Thanks Javelin!"
"I stand by Javelin product. Having won the Art Tommy Memorial, a provincial slalom title , placed 3rd in Super G at the provincial level as well as top ten in numerous provincial and Can-Am championships using Javelin products, I rely on it everyday I am on snow. It is easily manageable and very fast, suiting any type of skiing conditions. Happy to ski on such a great product!!!"
"From the Arctic man in AK, to Norams in eastern Canada, Javelin leaves no excuse for our athletes to perform their best. Very durable and slick in a wide range of conditions."
"Javelin helped my athlete make history for her nation when she had a top 30 World Champion finish in Schladming. The coatings are always dependable and easy to work with. Thank you Javelin for giving the opportunity to bring out the best in my athletes."
"When races depend on hundredths of a second, using the right wax is a big deal. When I first skied on Javelin Performance Coatings, I was surprised: I noticed a huge difference from the other waxes. This stuff was fast! With Javelin, I know I've waxed to ski my fastest in training and in competition."
