Re: Kuzmin scraping and structure

I was thinking more about the Steal scraping technique - I guess you would NOT want to scrape skis with a metal edge? I would think it would be quite difficult to avoid scraping the metal edges with each scraping stroke?

Re: Spikeboarding?

Probably a good training aid for SUP paddleboarders.

Re: Kuzmin scraping and structure

What about waxless skis? Obviously you'd want to avoid scraping the fish scale section but what about scraping the glide sections?

Re: Kuzmin scraping and structure

I'm new to waxing and was just about to drop a bunch of money on waxes, irons and other tuning equipment but now I'm not sure after finding this thread...awesome! I'm guessing this technique is only good for skate skiing and only the glide zones on classic skis? How about using this (scraping) techn...

Re: Asnes USGI Surplus Skis

What would be a good binding/boot system for these skis? I picked up 2 sets.

Re: Rottefella Move System

I don't quite understand - why would someone want to shift the binding position while skiing? I always thought the position was determined by your shoe size and thereafter fixed (intentionally)? As a new skater - I'd like an on-the-fly option that allows me to lock down the heel. I think a locked he...

Re: SNS

I'm thinking about giving the SNS system a try. In retrospect I should have started with SNS. For what I hear, they snap back and provide better control and confidence.

Re: How's the season going?

I've suffered a strange running injury that has limited my running to only 10-15k per week, So I've been skierg/rollerskiing about 90-100k per week all summer. Almost 100% DPing. I'm trying to get the timing down for kick/double pole but its tricky. I think I might be going too fast for it to be eff...

Re: ROLLER SKI AND RUNNING

I agree that running and nordic skiing are a great match. Another great match to nordic (especially double poling) is rowing! Rowing is almost the perfect opposite exercise of double poling yet the rhythm is similar. One of my favorite workouts is 3x5k or what I like to call the "hour-of-power&...

Re: Hypothetically: Pneumatic a Faster Wheel?

If you were building a fast rollerski with zero resistance, would a pneumatic "air" wheel be the fastest set-up? Perhaps a harder compound wheel like what inline skaters use? Being able to soak up the bumps should be a factor as well as weight and wheel size. Thoughts? Very interesting qu...

Re: Rollerskis and Dogs Don't Mix!

I discovered the Bermuda Triangle of rollerskiing, Dog---Rollerskier---Dog. Whenever possible, do not get between two dogs on a narrow trail...highly unpredictable! Ouch, what happened? Were you bitten? The two dogs attacked each other so both owners leashes were stretched across the path like a cl...
