Buying Rollerskis

Purchasing Your Own Rollerskis

Which rollerskis should you purchase?  

CSU requires that each athlete has both classic and skate rollerskis. Also, you need both classic and skate boots, and classic and skate poles.  The poles should have rollerski ferrules on them.

OLD CSU RENTAL PROGRAM AND STANDARD SKI: Note that CSU will no longer be renting roller skis. if you own your own pair of the old club standard combi rollerski, the Jenex 940, it is possible to retro-fit them with somewhat more stable wheels and dedicate them to classic skiing only.  Contact Jenex or the Bikeway Source. As for the old rentals themselves, CSU will be selling off its inventory of rental Jenex 940 skis, most likely through the Bikeway Source so that everyone can be sure to have them set up correctly. Watch for further details in both the team email list and on this web site.
