Skike V08 Lift Cross

Let’s take a look at the Skikes of the V08 group now: Available here are the Skike V08 Lift Cross 2R the Skike V08 Lift Speed and the Skike V08 Tour. They have especially one thing in common: The heel plate is not fixed to the skate, but can be lifted.

Skike V08 Lift Speed

Of course there are also differences between these three skis, to make sure everyone’s preferences and needs are fulfilled. The main difference between the Skike V08 Lift Cross and the Skike V08 Lift Speed is their wheels: The V08 Lift Cross uses air tires while the V08 Lift Speed uses 125mm PU wheels, like rollerblades. The PU wheels provide a way larger speed, but are lacking the cross country abilities of pneumatic tires. You can only roll with it on even grounds such as newly paved streets. Strictly speaking, they can not be classified as off-road rollerskis.

The Skike V08 Lift Cross is equipped with a standard reverse lock, while the Skike V08 Speed does not have one. It is not possible to add a reverse lock to the Skike V08 Speeds.

Skike V08 Tour

The newest Skike, the Skike V08 Tour is an attempt to combine both rollerski techniques. With a bolt, which fixates a joint attachment on the front part of the foot plate, it is possible to either release the whole foot including ball from the ski or to drive the ski with only a minimal released heel. Like that, it is possible to adapt the rollerski to the desired technique. A pull spring mechanism at the ball of the foot (which pulls the ski toward the foot up until 45° heel lift) switches from 45° on and pushes the back wheel onto the ground. That way, the ski stays in line like it is necessary to drive the classical Cross Country ski technique. This ski is equipped with standard reverse lock in the front wheels.

The possibility of a quick change between styles is convenient when rollerskiing longer tours with different terrains.

If you are still unsure which Skike is the one for you, we are happy to be there for you via phone or email!
