Anyone ever waxed the TOP of K2 PEs?

post #1 of 6

Finally picked up a pair of used Public Enemies in 174cm.  Just shipped in today.

Since these things have a topsheet made of Ptex, has anyone ever tried waxing it?  Just curious.  Hopefully going to take them out tomorrow for the first time.

 

Thanks!

Hah nice.

 

I was thinking hot scraping the top could get rid of some of the residual ick from over the years.

I've never seen PE's look big next to anything before.

Yep, back in 04/05 the 6 Stars were all the rage in every magazine.  Back then "the" do-it-all front side ski had a 68mm waist... think how times have changed!

 

Still love them and they are still in pretty much new condition.  The 6 Stars have some uberdurable topsheet material best described as a clear non-skid type surface.  Unless you look Very close on the tails you can hardly see any wear.
