Waxing iron for beginners or professionals? This guide will help you choose the right waxing iron for your needs.

Whether you want to get started with ski waxing or dream of prepping your own perfect skis for a competition, we haves the waxing iron for your needs. Below is an overview and description of all our waxing irons.

T77 Waxing Iron Economy 220V is our most affordable waxing iron, suitable for the beginner and hobby waxers. The iron can be heated to 160 degrees celcius and can be used to apply glide wax and grip wax to skis.

Some eager ski waxers like to have their own waxing iron to heat base wax in the grip zone. T77 is a good option for this particular job.

T73 Digital Iron 220V is the most affordable waxing iron with digital display showing temperature. The plate of the iron is thicker than the least expensive model and this iron can be heated to 170 degrees celcius.

T72 Racing Digital Iron 220V it the waxing iron suitable for the advanced ski waxers who want full control over the temperature. This waxing iron, which goes up to 170 degrees celcius, digitally adjusts the temperature. The edges of the plate are rounded so that you distribute the glide wax evenly over the skis.

T71A Alpine Digital Iron X-Thick 220V is the professional waxing iron adapted for alpine skiing. The iron has an extra thick plate, which ensures more stable temperatures. This iron has holes in the plate to prevent the waxing iron from sticking to the ski base of a wide ski. The iron can be heated to 180 degrees celcius.

T70 Wax Iron X-Thick Plate 220V is the waxing iron for those who demand the very best. The T70 is used by teams and the national team at the very highest level. The waxing iron can be fully heated to 200 degrees celcius, has an extra thick plate and a number of improvements, so you always get perfect results. The T70 can be used together with extractors to prevent smoke and particles from entering the waxing cabin.

Which one should I buy?

It boils down to price and ambition. An affordable waxing iron is suitable for the beginner and hobby waxer who once in a while wants to do a thorough prepping job.

The more you money you put into the waxing iron, the more stable the temperature and results you can expect. For example, we recommend that certain fluor free powders and hard waxes are applied with a heat of 165 degrees celsius. This means that a waxing iron that does not reach the temperature is insufficient.

Therefore, it's important to be honest with yourself and know what you need. Are you planning to prepare skis for recreational purposes or for competing? If you're going to attend races then it’s a good idea to upgrade the waxing iron to a model that meets the heat requirements of the racing products.

Good luck with your ski prepping.
