While not as complex as finding the perfect pair of skis, purchasing rollerskis does bring up many questions. Although it is a very specialized market, you do have quite a few brands and varieties to chose from. When purchasing rollerskis, factors you'll want to consider include cost, weight, tire wear, wheel speed, smooth ride, and the kind of road/terrain you'll be doing the majority of your rollerskiing on.

I've compiled a list of rollerski evaluations that you might find helpful. We are greatful for Mike Muha of Nordicskiracer.com for his many thoughtful reviews. We plan to expand this list by writing more reviews, but until then, you might also check out our TEAM page to see the equipment used by XC Ottawa athletes, and feel free to e-mail info@xcottawa.ca if you have specific questions about some of these rollerskis.

You might also find some helpful tips in our recent article on rollerskiing advice.
