What Satisfied Users Say!

I bought the Fire200's in mid-May because I wanted to ski all year. Since I consider myself to be a mediocre skier, I decided to pay for a longer lesson with Phil. It was definitely worth it!

While there are helpful videos online, Phil tailored the lesson to my needs. If I lived closer, I would take more lessons with him. Skikes are considerably heavier than skis and are suited more for the skate-skiing style. So, my learning curve is steep. But, I'm well-padded and protected, and am having a lot of fun learning.

My skikes arrived today in Toronto and I fell in love with them immediately. I started cross country skiing in early high school and a decade later roller blading. I never knew about summer training on skikes until a few years ago in New Zealand. Tendonitis in my foot has stopped me running, but now I have a new lease on life for fitness; my feet felt almost better after one skate tonight, no pain, just the incredible buzz I get from a great workout.

Cross country skiing is probably one of the best all-round sports: high cardio, low impact, upper and lower body training and something I can do anywhere. The equipment is state of the art, the brakes work brilliantly and the service is impeccable. I will definitely be a repeat customer.

We ordered the roller skis for our corps Biathlon land training. Excellent product and support. Easy to deal with and extremely accommodating. We will be purchasing again as we expand our team and require more equipment. Thank you for everything.

I love my Skike roller skis. They allow me to prepare for the winter ski season and long-distance ski races. I can double-pole not only on asphalt roads but also on grass and gravel. And I don’t need my ski boots and I can go with my running shoes.

The stability, control and comfort of Skikes is beyond what my regular rollerskis can do. Not only do I save money, but peace of mind. The adventure options are almost limitless. You can Skike on grass, gravel, sand, earth, ciment, asphalt, brick, wood and a lot more surfaces!

I love my Skikes because they are robust and yet responsive. Sleek, yet sturdy. The wheels and parts are interchangeable on all the models. When my wife and I want to have fun we often decide to Skike. The brakes permit me to adjust my speed so Annie can follow me. I will never go back to using regular rollerskis. Skike is my favourite German engineered and made product.

Phil Shaw 50 yrs old and Annie Gauthier 49 yrs old - Rosemère, QC

I would highly recommend taking lessons with Phil. I’m 33 and was in the market for a new sport. I found roller skiing/skiking to be the match. It’s fun, new and gives one an intense workout. Highly recommend it and the support from Phil is really helpful as it can be a bit tricky for newbie to adapt but it’s all worth it.

Andrew, 33 yrs old

I am extremely impressed with the solid engineering and design of my Skike V8 Lift Cross 2R. You don’t often see this kind of quality in this age of cheaply made stuff. For example, there are numerous adjustments on them that together make it possible to adapt to your feet, stance, style, and preferences. I am now able to ski year-round and will save big time by not having to go to New Zealand in our summer to get my fix in the summer! I have been Skiking on dirt trails at UBC, on gravel roads, and bike path. I particularly appreciate having reliable brakes to use. I would never use my old roller skis again, even on paved road, because they don’t have breaks. I had to be crazy (or desperate) to ski without brakes. Thanks Skike!

With respect to the Skikes: I must say I am very happy with the product that I ordered from you. And I am notably pleased with the prompt, attentive service you provided.

The online ordering was very straightforward and you were very organized getting my shipment delivered (with photo-confirmation to boot) the very same day. I received the Skikes within the same week - packaged very well and everything listed and labeled nicely so that assembly was a breeze. And I received a bonus to boot: a comfortable T-shirt!

After seeing so many people roller-skiing throughout Europe, I have often wondered why this pass-time has not caught on in Canada. I was happy to find you as a distributor of Skikes in Canada, especially knowing that you offer exceptional service and experience with respect to this product.

Thank yo very much!

I’m an avid cross country skier and roller skier. I like switching my classic and skate style depending on what I feel like doing at any given day. The Skike skis were designed to give me the best of both worlds...I can ski and skate on the same unit and day!

Thanks to the Skike adjustable ski poles, I can easily adjust my poles to accommodate to any ski style or conditions (off-road or paved). When skiing on hot days, no more warm winter ski boots...I just wear my regular running shoes as the Skike’s have a universal binding system suited for any foot size. Overall, the Skike’s look great, are extremely well engineered and built tough.

Dealing with Phil was a pleasure and responded to my questions quickly. Shipping was fast and free, since I spent over $200...I even got few extra goodies with my order, bonus! Great product and highly recommend Skike products.
