The HS series are great gliders for training and competition with very good glide properties.

HS5 TURQUOISE, -.4°F/14°F
The 5 series is the hardest wax in the HS line, and is a great choice in cold conditions, due to its great durability and dry friction properties. It's a great choice both for alpine and cross country. Despite being a wax for cold conditions, the melting point makes it easier to apply than many competitors, in this area, without sacrificing the great glide properties. For fresh, old or manmade snow. The speed of the iron should be approx. 8-10 sec. on a skating ski. The wax can be re-heated after cooling to room temperature (10 min) for better durability. Scraping after appr. one minute. Important to have a good iron to get an efficient melting of the wax. HS5 can be used as a race wax alone or as a base for top coats. Recommended iron temp: 150°C (311°F)

HS6 BLUE, 10ºF/21°F
HS6 is very versatile. Its area of use stretches from underlayer for powder to racing wax and base prep wax for cold skis. HS6 has a good durability and offers great performance on natural and artificial snow. The speed of the iron should be approx. 8-10 sec. on a skating or alpine ski. The wax can be re-heated after cooling to room temperature (10 min) for better durability. Important to have a good iron to get an efficient melting of the wax. HS6 can be used as race wax alone or as a base for top coats. Recommended iron temp: 145°C (293°F).

HS7 VIOLET, 18°F/28ºF
HS7 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. Can be used as a racing wax at low air humidity, but will also serve the purpose as a brilliant training wax. The speed of the iron should be approx. 8-10 sec. on a skating ski or alpine ski. The wax can be re-heated after cooling to room temperature (10 min) for better durability. Important to have a good iron to get an efficient melting of the wax. HS7 can be used as race wax alone or as a base for top coats. Recommended iron temp: 140°C (284°F).

HS8 RED, 24.8º/39.2ºF
A great wax for both base-prep and training. It can also be used as a race wax, preferably used with a top coat. Easy to melt and very convenient to work with. The speed of the iron should be approx. 8-10 sec. on a skating or alpine ski. The wax can be re-heated after cooling to room temperature (10 min) for better durability. Important to have a good iron to get an efficient melting of the wax. Recommended iron temp: 130°C (266°F).

HS10 YELLOW, 32°F/50ºF
HS10 is a great base prep wax, but also a great training wax. Ideal in warm conditions, typically during spring skiing. For racing we recommend to go with a top coat as the final layer. The speed of the iron should be approx. 8-10 sec. on a skating or alpine ski. The wax can be re-heated after cooling to room temperature (10 min) for better durability. It's important to have a good iron to get an efficient melting of the wax. Recommended iron temp: 120°C (248°F).
