Red Creek High Fluor Super Glider Silver


Product Description

When we first started testing the Red Creek HF paraffins in the winter of 2015-'16, this one was the first and most consistent to really stand out. We don't often end up feeling that the paraffin layer is a determinating factor in race ski performance, but our first race experience with HF silver was astonishing, and resulted in five out of six Super Tour podium positions in the men's and women's elite fields. While we have had success using HF Silver at temperatures below freezing, it is necessary for the snow to be old and pretty worked over.

This wax is very soft, and it's easy to crayon it on to the base cold. However, the melt point is deceptively high, and the material can tolerate iron temperatures considerably higher than its melt point. We recommend ironing at 130C (a bit lower than the 140C recommended by Red Creek). We often follow-up with a roto-cork, and find that we get a little more out of the performance that way (I don't know why that is). We have had this wax, applied with a roto-cork, win our fluoro top-coat test. Because the results seemed unbelievable, we had our tester (Brayton Osgood) keep skiing the HF silver against the second place liquid, expecting the liquid to quickly overtake the performance of the HF Silver. It took six kilometers before the liquid was better! But the best yet was the combination - HF silver with the liquid on top. Try it!
