Anyone tried DFunk's Speed Wax?
 
DFunks Speed Wax


I went to SnoCon today to pick up some graphite wax and the tune guy turned me on to this stuff. Supposedly made for Stevens Pass and all the Cascade Concrete snow we get around here. Was told it was faster than graphite.

Just stripped off the old wax from mine, my wife's, and my son's boards. Put this stuff on and we are going up tomorrow.

Would love to know in advance how it rides. I am committed at this point, so either way, I will find out.



:D:D:D:D

IIRC it's more expensive than a basic all temp, it's good wax though. You don't really need either with our conditions right now, it really excels in sticky spring conditions. That being said it's a good all around wax and great in the spring and slush. I found it had much better staying power compared to straight graphite wax.

Word. I am going to test it out tomorrow but conditions this year so far haven't been all that wet. Hoping that the forecast is true and we get a bit over night.

The techs at Snocon use just a bit of it on the edges and cheaper wax in the middle. I got some and tried that and it worked pretty damn good. Of course by the time I ran the iron over it pretty much mixed in with the other warm/all temp wax.

After a few waxes with it I've noticed you need less of the DFunk.

Reminds me of the T2 liquid metal when melting.

^^^ Yeah it is just like that huh. I was tripped out when ironing it in because of the color. It rides good though. It seems to stick to the board well too.

They claim it's cheaper, but I'm not seeing how. It's $12 for a 1.5oz puck. Conversely you can buy fluorinated waxes for much cheaper such as 4oz of OBJ X-Wax for $18 and 4.5oz of Dakine Indy or OBJ Viper for $15.

I'd love to support a local company and try it out, but can't justify it at that price. They also sell a bigger 10oz brick, but also couldn't find myself paying that much and committing to that much quantity without at least trying it first.

I do like it, but I'm to poor for it to be an everyday wax. I got mine from the shop guys at SnoCon they cut me off a couple oz for $6 or so, that way I could try it out.

picked up a 4oz brick for $24 at snocon today after talking to the tech. We'll see how it does in the wettish spring snow we have tomorrow up at stevens.

So what's kind of wax should I get for 55F spring conditions? Like what should I be looking for... Flourinated? Graphite?

The guy at the shop said the fluoride picks up dirt/oil easily so I need graphite on top of that...? He also said something about one of those costing like $100 for a quarter-sized puck.
