These hydrocarbons (CH) have no fluorocarbon material in the blends. They are 100% high performance hydrocarbon paraffins. Although they can be looked upon as an economical racing wax group, the colder waxes perform very well alone, and the warmer waxes make an acceptable base layer for Cera F . Their colors and temperature ranges coincide with the HFX and LFX Waxes. The CHX waxes can be distinguished from the LFX waxes by their darker shade of color. CHX Comes in 60, 180 and 900 gram packages.
CH4X: Temperature range: 10F to -25F. Recommended iron temp: 155C (311F). Ski bases melt at 150C so apply this wax with a good iron and move quickly. Don't linger on the base!
A new cold hydrocarbon wax for extreme cold conditions. CH4X can be used alone as a race wax when the air humidity is low. It performs very well on artificial snow and has a great durability. In the warmer part of the temperature range and with high air humidity, Cera F powder FC04X will increase the performance.
CH5X: Temperature range: 18F to 7F. Recommended iron temp: 150C (311F).
CH5X is easier to apply than CH4 this wax provides outstanding glide properties within its temperature range and has great durability. It can be used as a race wax alone, but is often used as a base for Cera F powder FC05X.
CH6X: Temperature range: 23F to 14F. Recommended iron temp: 145C (293F).
CH6X is an economic training and racing wax as well as a base prep wax for cold skis. It has high durability and offers great performance in most snow conditions as well as on artificial and glacier snow.
CH7X: Temperature range: 28F to 18F. Recommended iron temp: 140C (284F).
A new and improved wax that performs great in normal winter conditions below the freezing point. Its hardness makes it convenient to work with and easy to get a good end-result. It is an economic training and racing wax as well as an all round base prep wax.
CH8X: Temperature range: 25F to 39F. Recommended iron temp: 130C (266F).
An economic training and racing wax as well as base prep wax for warm skis. Easy to melt and very convenient to work with.
CH10X: Temperature range: 32F to 50F. Recommended iron temp: 120C (248F).
Slightly harder than the old CH10, test results show that a harder wax performs better in very wet saturated snow. The adjusted hardness makes it more durable than before. Good wax for base prep and training. For racing we recommend to go with fluoro wax in this temperature area.
