i don't know much about waxing, but i use Dakine all-temp wax and i have atomic punx with black, sintered bases.
i'll nose press your box if you lipslide my rail
"You put on your boots, click into your bindings,
dust the snow off your skis, and head out for the chair, and it doesn't matter
that you failed a test, didn't get the girl, or that your life is on a one way
trip down the shitter, your world is right for the next couple of hours."
then again, they are kinda slutty, but i dont look at it that way, more like an opportunity that you need to put forth minimal effort to gain the full advantage of
I know this.
My question was whether a black wax (assuming it had a high graphite content ) was better suited to a black ski base.
Does a black base also have a higher graphite content than a coloured base ski?
And is this an advantage?
yes a black base has a higher graphite content which does make it faster. but the wax does not, for example the best super high fluorocarbon waxes are usually white powders. they are most hydrophobic and have the best temperature range.
Important note however, just because you have black base material doesnt mean your base is a super-fast race base with any special properties - you can get black pigmented extruded-piece-of-shit bases.
Yes, like Swix HFBW (I guess?). But to be honest I don't really see the point in using HF waxes for freeskiing (unless you ski mild slushy conditions and are competing for X-games gold). I mean come on, these waxes cost 60+ USD for 40grams.
