Thumbs up What's your favorite Bulk Wax??

Hi i ride the ice coast. Ive been using dakine all temp wax and been going through quite a bit of it so ive decided i need to go buy something in bulk. What do you fellow east coast riders suggest for bulk wax? I dont care about price i just want the fastest/longest lasting all temp iron on wax i can get in a good amount. I ride a lot of granulatedsnow and some ice here and there.

For you non east coast riders, since youre here, whats your favorite bulk wax??



Also is there any wax thats better for park riding? Just curious.

Man i wish there were an android app for this forum

If you want your wax to last the longest get some cold temp wax.

I've been using Swix waxes though I recently bought a brick of the Hertel Hot Sauce as it was actually cheaper than anything else I could find. It's nice wax, but I think it may be on the softer side as I had white spots on the base after a day of riding "spring" corn snow.

The blue Swix wax that I had used before would hold up a bit better to granulated snow.

Hertel Hot Sauce - fastest hydro wax I've used. I routinely out-glide my buddies (some who ski) on flats. On the ice coast when hard riding, I do get more wear down the edges on ice/man-made/corn surface, so I use a harder cold temp wax (using either straight Paraffin or RaceWax cold temp) on the outer 2" or so by the edges, like so:



The only downside I have with Hertel is this:


That's a supposed 12oz. brick that actually weighed 10.5oz. I bitched and they sent me three 1oz. bars of Hot Sauce and 1oz. of their race wax as an apology. They either need to stop whipping air into their wax, or they need to start selling at actual weight, not saying it's "3/4lb."

I got a brick of OneBallJay's F-1 all temp. I like it way better than the BlueBird soy wax I was using before it but I find that the typical ice coast conditions still wears it away after a day of riding.

Anyone have suggestions on a firm cold temp wax for use on the outside edges?
