This wiki has been updated 11 times since it was first published in December of 2016. Proper waxing of skis or snowboards is critical both to protect your gear and to maximize your enjoyment of downhill sports, as doing so delivers speed and greater responsiveness. With a dedicated iron, the process of applying ski wax is easy and efficient, and owning one will pay for itself the second or third time you avoid shelling out cash for a chalet ski bum to service your equipment. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best wax iron on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

October 18, 2018:

Added the Demon Mini iron as an option for those who may not need to purchase Demon's entire kit. Also added the RaceWax Complete as another useful full-kit option, as well as the Star Digital as a pro-level choice.
