You’ve heard about properly breaking in a new engine, and breaking in a new drive belt, but a break-in period for hyfax? Yep. The plastic used to make hyfax will last longer if you break them in properly.
Yamaha mountain sled specialist Tom Hartman (www.hartmaninc.com) tells his customers that the best way to break in hyfax is to run down an area with little to no snow for a half-mile to a mile to get the slides good and hot (not quite melting) and then dive off into some soft snow to quickly cool them down. This hot-cold sequence creates a glaze on them that will make them last 3-4 times longer. It is like baking oil on a pizza pan to â€œseasonâ€ it. And, it works.
