Ski skating / skate skiing

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 


Based on some instructions in web
we build this ski and tested it several days
on groomed runs and then on wet snow in backcountry.

Hard piste makes you feel like a figure skater.
You are turning on metal fins as easy
while ski edges are idle.
Leaning forward sets the fins out of operation
and brings more speed.
Parallel turns on the edge should be used
while metal fins are idle (lifted up above the snow surface).

Wet snow off piste makes you feel like a wave surfer
on an extreme small board.
At the beginning we were cautious
and were turning too much, just to slow down.
At the end we have learned
to let this ski run as fast as possible.

If we order in the next 30 minutes can we get a second pair for free if we pay the shipping??

The Original Popiel pocket ski?? $9.95 for 1, but if you want one for both feet you have to order two for $15.95.

You guys see everywhere prices, nothing but prices.
This thread is not a ski shop but a narrow chute with some cliffs ahead and some seracs waiting above your head.

I haven't seen anything like theese and I only find nordic stuff when I search google. I'm curious about the history of the design of theese. If there is a video, I would much like to see it.
I think it's a cool experiment. I don't think they look skiable at all, which makes me even more curious of how they perform.

Why a troll? Isn't the guy who built them just someone who built them for himself out of curiosity? Doesn't seem to me like a salesman.

Carl R, as I stated in the opening post, the ski was built based on instruction in web. I am not the inventor,
the ski was apparently designed in Austria and is known as Raxski in Internet.

The ski is more than "skiable". I would say it`s "skatable". Of course it is slower than longer skis
on a piste.
I got no video, but another photo.
Hope for some fresh snow next weekend.
