Developed especially for longer distances in newer and clean snow. Great in warmer conditions, but often competitive also in colder weather. The speed of the iron should be approx. 8-10 sec. on a skating ski. The wax can be re-heated after cooling to room temperature (10 min) for better durability. Scraping after approx. one minute. Important to have a good iron to get an efficient melting of the wax. Marathon waxes can be used as a race wax alone or as a base for powders and other top coats. Recommended iron temp: 155°C.
