will the blue wax work?

damn weather guessers!

the other day was cold enough that my all-temp was grippy, -2* or so...so i got some blue wax, hot scraped the alltemp off and waxed up (swix bulk bar)blue for the supposed -4* day today...

now! they say sunny and +19* for a high. will the blue be ok? i know it says 4* upper limit, but is that a hard limit? will i be fuct when i get up there?

yep, pretty dumb Q, but i've never actually had to deal with this one....thanks !

too cold of a wax is still better than too warm of a wax.

You should be fine IMO, that's still pretty cold. I just put some blue on my board with the "polar vortex" returning, but I still mix in some all-temp with it for good measure.

Just wax it again with the all temp. You know you want to.

I have been wondering how much the different wax temps actually affect your ride. Is it significant?
You should ride the blue and see if it makes a difference then report back results... Do it for Science!

Cold temp wax in warm temps isn't too bad. Warm temp wax in cold temps can be like glue.

Sounds like you are using WAY too much wax. If you put some fiberlene under your iron, you can use a minimal amount of wax. A really big benefit with hard cold temp wax is that scraping will be quite a bit less work.
