DOES NOT COME WITH BINDINGS
The Speedmax skate rollerskis are the top-model from Fischer which are built with a lightweight Air Core Composite frame. The newest Fischer rollerski comes with a more XC ski-like feel than ever before with an enhanced camber and flex to the ski.
The Speedmax skis are best for all of your summer training and competition prep. They provide the smoothest ride yet and get you ready for your next big race!
Hollow shaft Carbon Construction (700g)
Decreases the overall weight and dramatically improves the swing weight.
Bridge Arch Shape
lowers the standing height and improves stability while maintaining good ground clearance.
Increased axle distance (670mm vs 630mm)
provides great tracking and stability at speed
Razor Shape Base
The unique frame geometry of the Speedmax Skate with integrated Razor Shape Base ensures sufficient space above the ground, even if the kick angle is extreme.
All components used for the suspension of the wheels are made with minimized tolerances. The provided precision is the basis for smooth running wheels with high durability. The bearings are double-sealed and maintenance-free.
Splash Guard 100
New splash guard developed for all wheels with 100mm diameter. The very light and robust plastic part can easily be mounted and removed with only one screw.
Skate and Classic Rollerskis
Winter may be over, but that doesn’t have to affect your cross-country ski plans. Hone your technique, stay in shape, and dream of next winter as you roll along with an amazingly authentic feeling of skiing on snow.
Choosing a Rollerski
The basic choice is, of course, between Classic technique and Skate technique, exactly the same as it is for winter. The skirollers for each technique are as activity-specific as they are for skis. Classic rollerski have relative wide wheels to simulate the contact area of the winter skis. Their wheels roll only forwards, so the pushoff phase has the same forward drive effect as a correctly waxed ski or a “fish scale” grip base. Skate rollerskis are similar to to snow skis in the way they perform and the way they require a more complex technique to attain and hold speed. They are shorter, and they have narrower wheels to simulate the edge contact of Skate skis. The radius of a Carbonlite Skate wheel is 100mm (2.5 in), for example.
There are also Skate rollerskis for beginners. The RC5 Skate offers sure handling and easy turning, even if your technique isn’t yet perfect. A great option for beginners, especially for young skiers, is a combination skiroller that allows both Skate and Classic style. One example is the RCJ Combi Mounted with its low-to-the-ground design for reassuring stability.
Fischer rollerski brakes are separate unit you attach to the rear of either boot you prefer. I simple tilting backwards of the lower leg presses the light, sturdy brake mechanism against the rear wheel. More pressure means faster braking. Simple, elegant, effective.
Boots & bindings
Like a winter boot, rollerski boots for either technique allow efficient power transfer from your legs to the rollerski to the ground. Warm weather rolling calls for ventilation and the Fischer Fresh anti-bacterial treatment to keep boots in good shape as the kilometers add up.
While the function of the binding is the same as it is for winter gear, the designs for Skate and Classic skirollers are unique to theses models.
Streets were designed for automobiles, bicycles, and other vehicles with large diameter wheels, so put on your bicycling or ski helmet and please consider knee pads and hand protection.
After a little acclimatization a skilled snow skier will feel comfortable on rollerski. The techniques of foot and leg motion, and use of the poles are the same. Go easy at first, and give yourself time to get used to the feel and some of the differences- especially braking!
