Johannes Høsflot Klæbo makes custom rollerski with IDT

Original article in Norwegian, or through Google Translate.

He wanted a rollerski that's more similar to normal ski on snow in order to get the most out of his summer training, so he has helped develop a ski with 'less grip' than what's available now.

He says they've still to perfect it with the classic ski so that he can do his now famous 'running stride', but that they have with the skate ski, although I don't fully understand what they mean with low grip and skating, but I guess that it washes out more on pushoff. (harder rubber on the side?).

The skis will be pink, but as he says: "It helps when the ski looks good" 8)
