HFX Fluorocarbon Glide Waxes

HF stands for High Fluorocarbon. There are 6 main waxes in this category, which are fluorinated hydrocarbon blends having a high percentage of a low-melt point fluorocarbon additive - a result of Cera F technology. The waxes are unique because they provide fast acceleration, work in a wide range of temperatures, and are durable and dirt resistant. HFX waxes are excellent when used alone, but ideal when used in combination with Cera F as an over layer. Conditions of high humidity are optimal for HFX waxes. Availble in 40g or 180g bar size.

  HF04X
Temperature range from -12°C to -32°C (10°F to -25°F).
Recommended iron temp: 155°C (311°F).
A new cold wax with nano technology specially developed for dry friction conditions. The advantage of fluor in these temperatures is most present when the air humidity is high, meaning above 80 %.
HF04X can be used as a race wax alone or as a base for Cera F powder, such as FC04X.

  HF05X
Temperature range from -8°C to -14°C (18°F to 7°F).
Recommended iron temp: 150°C (311°F).
The 5 series is brand new for the Cera Nova X line, and fulfill a hardness gap between the 4 and the 6 series. It was a demand from alpine and has been used with great success in World Cup over the last two seasons. Cross country is also gradually discovering HF05X and we see more and more servicemen who prefer this wax in cold conditions.
The lower melting point compared to the 4 series makes it easier to work with, without sacrificing the good glide properties it has in cold conditions.
HF05X can be used as a race wax alone or as a base for Cera F powder, such as FC05X.

  HF06X
Temperature range from -5°C to -10°C (23°F to 14°F).
Recommended iron temp: 145°C (293°F).
Our std. HF6 recipe has proven to be too good to be dropped and is therefore continued as HF06X in the new Cera Nova X range. It’s a very popular wax both in alpine and cross country and has shown good properties on artificial snow in addition to natural snow.
HF06X can be used as a race wax alone, but is often used as a base for Cera F powder, such as FC06X.
  HF07X
Temperature range from -2°C to -8°C (28°F to 18°F).
Recommended iron temp: 140°C (284°F).
A new wax with an improved recipe, proven to be significant better than the old HF7. A versatile wax suited for normal winter conditions below the freezing point. Its hardness makes it convenient to work with and easy to get a good end-result.
HF07X can be used as a race wax alone, but is often used as a base for Cera F powder, such as FC07X.
  HF08X
Temperature range from -4°C to 4°C (25°F to 39°F).
Recommended iron temp: 130°C (266°F).
A continuation of the classic HF8 which is a legendary wax within racing. Over the last decade this wax has contributed to a numerous of Olympic and WC medals in all ski disciplines. It’s softness and high fluoro content makes it perfect in conditions on both sides of the freezing point.
HF08X can be used as a race wax alone, but is often used as a base for Cera F powder, such as FC08X.
HF10X
Temperature range from 0°C to 10°C (32°F to 50°F).
Recommended iron temp: 120°C (248°F).
A new wax in for the Cera Nova X line made a little bit harder than the old HF10. Our test result shows that a slightly harder wax performs better in this area compared to the old classic, especially noticeable when used alone. The adjusted hardness is also making the wax more durable than before.
HF10X can be used as a race wax alone, but is often used as a base for Cera F powder, such as FC10X.
  HF12X
Combi pack with 20g HF07X and 20g HF08X.
