A bit about Swix CHX Waxes:
CHX stands for Hydrocarbon. This category has no fluorocarbon material in the blends. They are 100% high performance hydrocarbon paraffins. Athough they can be looked upon as an economical racing wax group, the colder waxes perform very well alone, the warmer waxes make an acceptable base layer for Cera F.
Their colors and temperature ranges coincide with the HFX and LFX waxes. The CHX waxes can be distinguished from the LFX and HFX waxes by their darker (richer) color hue.

Swix CH5 is a very tough wide range wax. It is designed for artificial snow and can resist the abrasion from artificial snow. It goes on fairly easily for such a hard wax. Put some on your downhill skis and you are good for a weekend or two.
