Why rollerski? Ski training during the summer and fall is critical to improving cross country ski technique and fitness. Rollerskiing is an important part of a well-rounded summer program because rollerskis do an excellent job imitating on-snow training. Like skiing on snow, rollerskiing exercises arms, legs, core and improves cardiovascular fitness. Rollerskiing is also great training for injured runners who are looking for an alternative low-impact, weight bearing workout. The saying “Skiers are made in...

Next week, Matt Liebsch, of Gear West, will be heading east to the U.S. distribution center for Fischer Skis in search of the very best race skis. Matt will be taking our Flex Tester to facilitate our ski-picking. Matt will be picking through thousands of skis. At the race level, skis are still built by hand, one at a time. This means a lot of variance within a batch and even within a pair. Thoroughly checking each pair with multiple tools is key to finding the best quality. Matt will use his hands, eyes, and our flex tester to triple check each pair he brings home, ensuring he returns with the best skis.

Get outfitted with the best roller skis on the market. Swenor Roller Skis, famous for their on-snow feel, have built a reputation as the leading roller ski brand for performance, quality, and value. Competitive ski racers will appreciate the real ski feel of the Skate Elite, Carbonfiber and Fiberglass Classic skis while junior racers and recreational skiers will find amazing value and performance in the aluminum bodied Skate ski.

Skis getting slower? Bases scratched up? Not taking or holding wax? We are offering free ski base analyses that can help determine if your skis need a stone grind. Nearly all skis can be improved by a fresh stone grind, even if they have been ground previously. Our ski base analysis can help you determine just how much difference a new grind can make.

Your skis will be precision glide waxed with the ideal LF under-layer, HF race-layer, and 100% Fluoro top-coat then finished with the race ready hand structure. At the American Birkiebeiner you can even have your skis delivered to you in the Start Area. If you have classic skis for waxing there will be an additional $10.00/Race charged. A classic ski service will include the standard glide wax application, plus a base binder in the kick zone. Gear West technicians will not apply kick wax, but will have a kick recommendation and kick wax available on race morning.

Gear West purchased a Tazzari RP23 to bring our stone grind service to the World Cup level. Matt Liebsch has successfully used Tazzari stone grinding on the majority of his race skis over the past 4 seasons with great results. The Tazzari RP23 machine is a big advance over previous models and allows for the cleanest cut structure on the market and a race-ready finish on a base, right off the machine. With RP23, there...
