Re: Johannes Høsflot Klæbo makes custom rollerski with IDT

I saw the article but couldn't make head nor tail of it. Are they getting rid of the any return ratchet and adding something that is based on your kick to stop the return, more like a real classic ski? Didn't someone here talk about something similar?

Re: World's most eager skier?

What a nice back garden. Would love to live like that one day, but only if there are (daily) groomed trails nearby. I'm so spoiled for that now.. And fab video in a beautiful scenery Trotro. I like the slow and 'hold' camera flying. Thanks guys, it was just an initial attempt at some video, the sno...

Re: World's most eager skier?

You've got nicer conditions than we have, no real re-freeze around here for crust skiing for weeks due to temperatures + cloud cover

Re: How to promote rollerskiing?

when I visited the page, one of the first thing I saw was a picture of girl with massive scrape up her whole side That is impressive! I've had about 3 accidents rollerskiing, all painful. I normally wear a helmet and elbow pads as I once landed very heavily on my elbows and chest. I used to do a lo...

Re: Rossignol S2 vs S2+

Thanks, I'm surprised Rossignol don't mention this on their website. So effectively it is the "stiff" version of the ski - as with other manufacturers.

Rossignol S2 vs S2+

Does anyone know what the difference is between the S2 and S2+ from Rossignol. There is a weight difference of 1g listed in the catalog and the S2+ is only available in larger sizes, I'm assuming it is stiffer?

Re: Ole-Einar Bjørndalen retires at 44

I wonder if his problem has been brought on by too much training over the years ?

Re: How to promote rollerskiing?

> maybe one of the reasons the question of PR comes up is seeing all those sweet videos of European pro rollerski racing There is the Castle race which looks pretty comparable to Lysebotn/Blink. Interestingly the Brits do a lot of Rollerski promotion - probably because they lack much in the way of C...

Re: Elite racers and their gear

I typed this on my phone... meant race not rave... I did wonder for about 2 seconds but went back and re-read. I think shorter length skis just have too short of contact zones to be fast enough on the world cup. I was talking skate skis not classic btw. So does this mean that the sweet spot is some...

Re: Elite racers and their gear

Anything is possible. The photos I was looking at were from skiing - races and training. Weirer was on S1 up on the glacier in spring. I think the numbers on her skis were right as they looked very long. I'll post links when I find them. I wondered whether the French team had just given all their fe...

Elite racers and their gear

I know that elite sport doesn't apply to most of us but I was wondering what skis racers were using. Here are some examples I found (may not be up to date) Marie-Dorin 168cm / 56 kg. Skis Rossignol WCS S2 186cm Anais Chevalier 163cm / 53 kg. Skis Rossignol WCS S2 186cm Dorothea Weirer: 158cm / 60 kg...
