I thought it was the other way around, colder wax was softer to melt propperly in the colder temps and keep the water film in place and would wear off faster in warmer temps?
Nope u got it half right...cold wax for cold temps and snow & warm wax for warm temps and for warm snow such as spring snow.
I'll make sure to keep track of that for future waxings!!
Do you know where I can buy a package of good wax bars (3 diff temps)??
Ebay is one but any other suggestions?
I use SWIX wax and i just bought it from their website.
U have 2 basic waxes : Hydrocarbons & fluorocarbons.
Hydros r cheaper but they r still reliable. Fluoros are a little faster and more durable
If ur learning how to wax then get the hydro wax it will still do u good.
there are also hi-humitidty & lo-humidity waxes.
hi-hum wax is used for hi-hum snow where its easy to make a snowball
lo-hum wax is used for lo-hum snow where the snow is really cold and has no moisture in it and its really hard to make a snowball.
usually for spring, u want to use hi-hum since it rains in the spring time right?
but that getting too much in detail.
get the hydrocarbon wax and make sure its colder than the ectual temp ur riding in and ull be fine for 3-6 runs!!
