Re: Anyone rollerskiing yet?

Got my brand new FF classics (it took 10 days and a lot of hassle to arrive, so can't recommend ordering directly from the manufacturers site) and went straight out on a wet and dirty road so after just one trip they look like a mess.. https://i.imgur.com/AKURoCE.gif https://i.imgur.com/y6c6iAY.jpg ...

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 r...

Re: Anyone rollerskiing yet?

I gave in and ordered a set but it's taking forever to arrive with poor ordering system etc, so this doesn't bode well if there are any warranty issues. Notice FF also has a dedicated wet wheel for skate skis. According to TV pundits, the newer rollerski wheels are miles ahead of what they were just...

Re: Anyone rollerskiing yet?

Awesome. https://i.imgur.com/U2wxp6H.gif Sounds like a tough event. Skiskett do anti return wheels that should work in skate skis https://www.skiskett.it/prodotto/ruota-per-alp3-posteriore/ Nice find, thanks. I guess it's for their Biturbo 3-wheelers like these: I will check with Skiskett if the whe...

Re: Low intensity training prolongs life, high intensity has little or no effect

Yeah I know what you mean, and tough to know that taking pleasure from competition is going to cost in the long run. I thought the consensus was that High Intensity Training was actually bad for you causing micro scars on the heart wall which disrupts electrical impulses used to contract the heart m...

Re: Anyone rollerskiing yet?

Yeah those I would like to try too, shame my shop doesn't do Jenex. Should really be like skiing in tracks, and opens up completely new routes like gravel paths which is very tempting. About the weight I would guess classics shouldn't count for as much as skating and I do have the Aero skates and th...

Re: Low intensity training prolongs life, high intensity has little or no effect

Went out rollerskiing with this in mind, and it was quite liberating to know the absolute best way was to take it easy when before I had the opposite idea.

Re: Anyone rollerskiing yet?

Btw, the FFs are on sale from the manufacturer's home page for $225 classic and $175 skate including binding which is very reasonable. Normal price is two and half times that. The developer seem like a good guy so would be worth asking if he ships abroad if you're interested.

Re: Anyone rollerskiing yet?

FF said they didn't have ratchet wheel for skating but that the classic is designed for skating and I should try that instead, so had the last outing before handing them back to the shop and turns out they skate quite well! They were of course slower than my Jenex since I guess the contact surface i...

Re: Anyone rollerskiing yet?

Yes, double poling on skate skis shouldn't be far off classic skis if they track well. I got the idea from Skiacrossamerica.com : " we had ratcheting wheals for the Aero’s. These were very helpful on the long mountain climbs when we encountered a small shoulder and traffic. The ratcheting wheels all...

Re: Anyone rollerskiing yet?

FF sells their wheels with spacers so one can use them with Idt, Swenor and Swix skis which is a great idea: https://www.ffskis.com/product-page/klassisk-hjulsett-med-helgummi-og-v-spor-passer-idt-swenor-swix They also sell a dedicated wet wheel for skating: https://www.ffskis.com/product-page/nyhet...

Re: Anyone rollerskiing yet?

Borrowed the FF classics and tracking is waay better than the Swenors, and although you're not wobbling on a point, they still don't feel flat to the ground like on snow. I want to buy them, but they are quite expensive, and the flex shock dampening part was not that noticable TBH. And since the whe...
