Pursuit Fork Flex Rollerskis

These came out on top in a 2016 comparative review by Fasterskier.com, beating top brands like Marwe, Swenor etc.

Their main feature is spring metal forks which means great flex, and have the frame lower than the wheels which is good. Being aluminum they should also be sturdy.

Interestingly, they come in different lengths (560, 620 and 670 mm wheelbase).

My concern are that the forks looks scarily thin and prone to break or bend sideways, but maybe spring metal is vastly more solid than normal steel or aluminum?

What do you think?

Is there a similar comparison for classic rollerskis?

I've got 500km on my Fork Flex skis now. I have not noticed any issues with durability or lateral flexibility.

Anecdotally I heard that there was some destructive testing done on the forks with sawing and repeated loading of the forks with very encouraging results. This wasn't any standards based testing, but it was something.

I kind of wish I had gotten the 3/3 combination wheels instead of the 2/3 I have. These ski so smooth that I wouldn't mind more resistance.
