Re: Replacing bindings on Rollerskis?

What NNN binding type fits this bolt/screw pattern?

Re: World Cup, Rollerskiing, Monte Bondone

I noticed a lot of racers using 3-wheeled models during the race (like the old Biturbo). Now I don't feel so lame for using a 3-wheel model! 8)

Re: Replacing bindings on Rollerskis?

Yeah a base plate is screwed to the ski (with undersized holes so it's hard work), and then slide the top part (the binding itself) onto that. Not exactly sure about the balance point and such when it comes to rollerskis, I guess you just have to wing it or copy where the old one was. What are you ...

Re: Replacing bindings on Rollerskis?

Is it difficult to replace the bindings on rollerskis? Mine came pre-installed so I have no idea if any drilling was required. What does "Slide on" mean? I guess (from memory) there is a plastic plate fixed to the frame and the binding slides onto this but I think there must still be bolts holding ...

Re: Anyone rollerskiing yet?

I'm thinking about getting some new rollerskis. I'm training on a smooth rails-to-trails path; however, its littered with large (sometimes as big as golf balls) gravel. I've been using the Jenex RC150's and they can roll over just about anything. I'm 100% DPing so they provide a nice stable platform...

Re: Blink 2019 - Lysebotn Opp - Races

Impressive double poling by Musgrave. He deliberately got rid of a lot of muscle mass and it's working well, but how many times do we see 'summer stars' fade come the winter. Therese Johaug is so much in a class of her own on uphills like this that pundits are seriously suggesting she should join t...

Re: Blink 2019 - Lysebotn Opp - Races

Apparently there was a double poling only race for the first time. Anyone have a video link for those races?

Re: NEW CLASSIC ROLLER SKIS

I recently purchased a pair of Swenor classic roller skis. They are Swenor Finstep model and I have #3 slow wheels and a calf brake. Have to say they are terrific to ski on. Being composite and for lighter skiers they have a nice flex to them, the wheels are slow and controllable, and the brake is ...

Red flexor and rollerski drop

Turning in the Jenex 150 RC’s can be difficult since they’re so heavy. Compounding this is the massive drop from my binding. Would installing the red flexor in the binding improve control by reducing rollerski drop from the boot? Follow up question...is installing the red flexor difficult?

Re: Anyone rollerskiing yet?

I fractured my elbow (radial head) 10-weeks ago after a fall (while running). It's actually the 3rd time I've fractured this same elbow. Let's just say we don't quite heal the same as we age. :cry:

Re: World Cup 2018/2019

Klæbo can win all the sprints he wants, he won't be crowned king until he can win a 50k at the WC, olympics or at least Holmenkollen. I've been quite impressed with the all-around performances of Natalya Nepryayeva and Alexander Bolshunov, both are very balanced skiers (sprint/distance, classic/skat...

Beware of https://ixcski.weebly.com

Users beware of https://ixcski.weebly.com (crosscountryski.us). I've been using it for 2-years without any issues but today it loaded a trojan onto my iPad. When you visit the video link its always a .ru website...I guess I got what I deserved?
