Racewax Universal

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Anybody used this? The description says it's harder/better in cold than the green.

If it is "better in cold than the green hydrocarbon wax" and "wax is the hardest of the hydrocarbon series"

It would seem it is not a very good "universal" or "all temperature" wax. There are a lot of better choices.

I used a white Universal sample that I received from back in 2008.   That sample may or may not be the same formulation as what is shown on your link.


That ~2008  sample worked fine on Mid-Atlantic manmade, worked *great* during Snowmageddon on my XCD skis, and  I did not like it at all  on Mt. Hood in May...and I ran out of sample.


Hope someone with more recent experience comes along.

It says it is harder than the Green cold wax with is for temps below 25F. Assuming a 8-10 degree range for the Green, the "universal" would seem to be for temps below something like 18F. I haven't used it. I tried one of their graphite waxes which was fine but not great but I recall it had some suggested temperature range. I may have another somewhere in my wax box.  I know that some people use hard waxes as a kind of universal but they don't provide a fast ski when it is warm or moderately warm, or even super cold.
