Rex HF Gliders
The story of new HF series: From 25 different Sochi Olympic test waxes to 4 commercial products.
The research and development of the new HF series began in collaboration with the Finnish National XC Ski team with a common goal: To make the ultimate HF glider for Sochi Olympics. We started with a blank canvas and completely new raw materials, and made 25 different test waxes that were tested with over 8.000 timed test runs in different conditions. Only the best waxes for each temperature range were chosen for production, and here they are! The new HF series is the first of new generation Rex gliders.
- All of the waxes are relatively hard, but their melting point is low comparet to their hardness (130-140°C)
- Melt with an iron to a clean ski base
- Scrape when the wax is still warm
- Let cool down and brush lightly with a brass or natural brush
- Finish with a nylon brush
For old snow.
High fluor glider in powder form. Based on the same new raw materials as the highly acclaimed new HF-series. The powder form enables the mixture of the insoluble PTFE component into the product.
