Swix VR 55 Violet Fluorinated Hard wax( without silver) is for slightly moist new snow around freezing 0°C (32°F), and for older transformed snow below freezing. It gives excellent kick without sacrificing glide and has good grip on older snow below freezing. The VR Series Hard waxes are characterized by a high degree of flexibility. Each VR-wax has two specified temperature ranges, one for falling and new fallen snow, characterized by sharp snow crystals with relatively strong penetration capacity, and one range for older snow, when the crystals are rounded off and have less penetration power.
• Ideal for new fallen snow from +2°C to 0°C (36°F to 32°F) and for old, fine-grained snow from 0°C to -3°C (32°F to 27°F)
• Fresh snow is characterized by sharp crystals with relatively strong penetration capacity
• Older snow is characterized by crystals that are rounded off and have less penetration power
