Hertel Ski Wax and Snowboard Wax
Hertel Ski Wax and Snowboard Wax
is it as good as they say it is?
and what is the wax to make it so good?

I have a few bars of it atm. I used the super hot sauce in japan and was happy with it, I have some of the racing fc7 or whatever it is too, wont get to try it for a few months though.

I've got the super hot sauce, i have no complaints, stays on for a long time.

I love it. Not pricey and holds up very well.

It's great all-temp wax; good price and performance.

If you're riding ice or granulated/man-made snow you'll want to put on a colder temp wax as I had it chewed right off my base by day's end in such conditions... but that's a given while using pretty much any all-temp wax.

Recycled from a previous post:

Hertel Hot Sauce - fastest hydro wax I've used. I routinely out-glide my buddies (some who ski) on flats and it really helps in deep pow... experience verified at Stevens Pass and Revelstoke in 40+ cm days. 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." Anyway, $21 for a big brick is really cheap for such a good product.

FYI, if you are interested, search for patent# 5,114,482 dated 5/19/1992. It's got some uber surfactants and stuff in it.

Hertel is the best IMO.

SLS, paraffin and their super special secret race shit in there = awesomeness.

I like their approach with no temp specific wax.

It is all in the preparation of the wax job for the conditions, not specific wax for temp.
