Come on over to Gear West and grab all of the roller ski essentials that you need. We have got helmets, gloves, ferrules, speed reducers, and tires/wheels. Now you are able to enjoy cross country skiing all year round with all of the proper gear and protection. Roller skis are designed to emulate cross country skiing during seasons where there is no snow. Even though you are not on the snow roller skiing uses techniques that are almost identical to the motions of cross country skiing. Roller skis were invented and intended to be a training method for avid cross country skiers. Many skiers use these to train on during their off season but there are also those who prefer to do it just for fun and a good source of exercise. Not everyone is built to do sports when it is cold outside. Helmets are built to ensure one’s safety. If you are naturally clumsy, have poor balance, or just wanted to prepare for a tumble just in case it is always important to wear a helmet to protect your head from any injuries. If you wheel gets damaged or is just old and you want a new one then Gear West has you covered. Are you having trouble getting enough grip on the ground with your pole to move as much as you would like to? If so it may be time to get a new ferrule. Some individuals enjoy falling over in the grass to simply stop themselves, others not so much. If you prefer to come to a stop slowly and less hard core, then you should look into our collection of speed reducers.
