Marius Karslen competes in ultra triathlons all across Europe and in his '20s has accomplished a lot. Marius came by Qilta when he competed in Swedeman Extreme Triathlon at which Qilta were present as a Sponsor and he had the chance to try our product for the first time. www.swextri.com

As fortune should have it, one of our classic photo's taken by Sinead Onora Kennedy was that of Marius on his bike in the photo above.

Marius followed up after the event and has since trialled Qilta so we asked him for a testimonial of his experience of Qilta so far.

Here is Marius's review ..

"Can a pair of socks and a pair of calf sleeves make a difference?

– Yes, they can !

I was first introduced to Qilta Recovery sleeves and socks on the expo for "Swedeman Extreme Triathlon".

At first, I thought this was just another compression brand who saw the possibility to expand their brand. Little did I know that the socks and sleeves would be a key factor to my recovery hopefully for the rest of my career.

I struggle a lot with blisters on my feet.  I especially struggled after Ironman 70.3 Turkey and Bislett 24-hour indoor challenge, the double-sided socks and its balm reduced my blisters and helped a lot with the pain. That meant that I could start the training a lot quicker than what I´am used to.

I also struggle with stiff legs after a big race. The calves work wonders with my legs and by following the instructions I can really feel the difference.  

I can't see myself ever doing a race without Qilta being a central part of my kit. I'm proud to be working with such a great brand with the most helpful people. Thank you so much for all your support – I can't wait to continue using this amazing product in 2019!"
