Buying Guide: Pro-Ski Rollerskis

Mon, Jun  28, 2010  - By Mike Muha

Pro-Ski rollerskis are manufactured in Sweden by Sterners Specialfabrik AB (http://pro-ski.com/) and distributed exclusively in North American by WebSkis.com in Bend, Oregon. The skis traditionally feature heavy duty frames that can take lots of abuse and long wheel life.

Pro-Ski Roadline Tech Classic RolleskiA narrow front wheel makes this ski nimble and also reduces the swing weight. Since the ratchet is on the narrow front wheel, it has less friction on the pavement. This means that the ski will release from the "grip" phase of the stride earlier - reducing the possibility developing a "late kick." The wider, rear wheel is a standard C2 wheel, meaning lots of stability and just the right speed.
Pro-Ski S2 Classic Classic $300 610mm 2 70mm 30mm Fast Polyurethane 1.66 kg Yes No NA Rear Aluminum
