Hertel Wax on Amazon

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Well we hooked up with Amazon.com and became a number one seller. 

I like reading the post. Hertel waxes are really for the general consumer. We win races because it is just that good. 

If you are a general consumer or you know people who are, please tell them. 

I know there are many different race waxes since I invented Hotsauce. Since Hotsauce won so many races, it is understood that many will attempt to produce something quicker. I don't read anything about White Gold. I think it still has an edge but the cost edges out many. 

All one needs is Super HotSauce if applied properly. Swix has over 171 waxes posted on the WWW. Is this confusing our customers or what. Possibly this is why less than two percent of riders wax.

I bought a big block of HERTEL race wax for a DH camp and race in Vermont. I waxed my training skis with HERTEL and my race skis with KUU MACH 3. My race skis  were 2 seconds faster. I use the HERTEL as my storage wax now. Your results may differ.

For my .02, I've been using Hertel exclusively the past couple seasons. Hot Sauce and Spring Solution depending on season. I don't race. I just ski - usually between 50 and a hundred days a season. In that context, I've found that the Hertel waxes give me all the "performance" I need across temps from -12F to slushy spring days. The "universal" character of those waxes has served me extra well when conditions at the top and bottom, or on different aspects, vary. Or if temps are shifting wildly day to day (no agonizing over what to put on in the evening...). Under those circumstances, the Hertel waxes serve me far, far better than the temp specific ones.  

 

Interestingly, I've found that a good 60 second corking job after each ski day keeps me covered - enough I have not even fired up my iron in a year+ (which I believe is a happy thing for my bases, but that is a different discussion...). I'm pretty much ready to save some wall space and dump all my temp specific waxes. There are likely other fine "universal" waxes, but the Hertel ones have done right by me. 

 

Hertel + 1-click works for me.  Glad they are making it extra convenient for when I place my next order...  biggrin.gif

Hotsauce is the best smelling wax out there.

 

I go out to the garage, close the door, turn up the iron, put on Dark Side of The Moon and wax the entire family's skis in one evening. We have eleven sets of skis and boards between us, sometimes I cycle them two or three times; it feels therapeutic, addictive. Not sure why, but I always sleep well after a good Hotsause waxing session, relaxed and at peace with the world.

 

Your results may differ.
