Swix HFX Glide Wax
HF stands for High Fluorocarbon. There are 6 main waxes in this category, which are fluorinated hydrocarbon blends having a high percentage of a low melt point fluorocarbon additive - a result of Cera F technology. The waxes are unique because they provide fast acceleration, have proved effective in a wide range of temperatures, and are durable and dirt resistant. HFX waxes are excellent when used alone, but ideal when used in combination with Cera F as an over layer. Conditions of high humidity are optimal for HFX waxes.
HF04X HIGH FLUORO GLIDEWAX.
A new cold wax with nano technology specially developed for dry friction conditions, the advantage of HF4 in these temperatures is most present when the air humidity is high, meaning above 80 %.
HF04X can be used as a race wax alone or as a base for Cera F powder, such as FC04X
Temperature range from -12°C to -32°C (10°F to -25°F).
Recommended iron temp: 155°C (311°F).
HF05X HIGH FLUORO GLIDEWAX.
The 5 series is brand new for the Cera NovaX line fulfilling a hardness gap between the 4 and the 6 series. While demand from alpine drove the creation of this wax, it has been used with great success in Cross Country World Cup conditions over the last two seasons, especially on man made loops requiring a bit more hardness from the wax.
HF05X can be used as a race wax alone or as a base for Cera F powder, such as FC05X.
Temperature range from -8°C to -14°C (18°F to 7°F).
Recommended iron temp: 150°C (311°F).
HF06X HIGH FLUORO GLIDEWAX.
HF6 is reborn without change as HF06X in the new Cera NovaX range. Among the most universal of the HF waxes, this is an amazing one-wax-for all conditions (especially Alaskan, Midwestern and Eastern) should you be tight on budget or looking to simplify.
HF06X can be used as a race wax alone, but is often used as a base for Cera F, such as FC06X and HVC Cold (FC60L).
Temperature range from -5°C to -10°C (23°F to 14°F).
Recommended iron temp: 145°C (293°F).
HF07X HIGH FLUORO GLIDEWAX.
A new wax with an improved recipe, proven to be significantly better than the old HF7, HF7X is a versatile wax suited for normal winter conditions below the freezing point. This was a popular base wax during the recent Sochi games.
HF07X can be used as a race wax alone, but is often used as a base for Cera F, such as FC07X and HVC Cold (FC60L).
Temperature range from -2°C to -8°C (28°F to 18°F).
Recommended iron temp: 140°C (284°F).
HF08X HIGH FLUORO GLIDEWAX.
The classic HF8, a legendary racing wax, is renamed as HF8X. Over the last decade this wax has contributed to a numerous of Olympic and WC medals in all ski disciplines, it is the most winning glide wax in the history of skiing. It’s softness and high fluoro content makes it perfect in conditions near freezing and above.
HF08X can be used as a race wax alone, but is often used as a base for Cera F, such as FC08X and HVC Warm (FC80L).
Temperature range from -4°C to 4°C (25°F to 39°F).
Recommended iron temp: 130°C (266°F).
HF10X HIGH FLUORO GLIDEWAX.
A new wax for the Cera NovaX line made a little bit harder than the old HF10. Test result shows that a slightly harder wax performs better in this area compared to the old classic, and was especially noticeable when used alone without powders or liquid covering. The adjusted hardness is also making the wax more durable and resistant to dirt than the previous HF10.
HF10X is best used as a base for Cera F, such as FC10X and HVC Warm (FC80L).
Temperature range from 0°C to 10°C (32°F to 50°F).
Recommended iron temp: 120°C (248°F).
