Well, you know what the beginning of April means, right?
It’s time to visit your shed/balcony/mom’s attic – and pull those trusted rollerskis out of their storage bags.
If you invested wisely, they might be perfectly ready to roll. Even more, you might even have an emotional attachment of sorts to the particular pair.
For everyone else is this short market review.
Because while you were happily ( snow-)skiing through the winter, certain good folks who make your summer planks were working hard to come up with new models, services, options – anything to make you rollerskiing life better & brighter.
In that vein, let’s look at what’s new and what’s hot:
Finnish stalwart Marwe’s production philosophy is ” if ain’t broken – don’t fix it”. No new models off the production line in Hyvinkää. Which does not mean there is no news to share
Marwe is also launching a all-new global website that, traditionally, will incorporate full-time online shop.
Norwegian rollerski producer IDT has ace in its sleeve that a few ( it’s a figure of speech – in reality nobody) could beat: they work close together with some of the world best skiers to develop their models.
Canadian Rollerski producer Rundle Sport is launching no less than five new models – and expanding to Europe. Point of entry – the Norwegian market, the most demanding market in the world. But Rundle appears to be confident – they are official suppliers of the Canadian Ski Federation and get very good press in tests held across the ocean.
We await confirmations and more details from other rollerskis & related equipment manufacturers – and will keep you updated. Stay with us at the Dailyskier
