I have limited hand force in one hand and I have to say it was incredibly easy to apply the brake on this hand. It could almost be done with a fingerprint. Ingenious!
Anders Nupen Hansen, President, The National Association for Spinal Cord Injury

For me the SMART BRAKE Technology is definitely a game changer. I did not feel very comfortable on normal (non-brake) ski’s. Having the Rollersafe skis makes me use them a lot more, which makes it easier for me to train, living in a country that doesn’t have enough snow each year to train on real XC ski’s.

Rollersafe roller skis have disk brakes that work with a trigger on your ski pole to give you superior control downhill. Excellent product. Love mine!
Mark Armstrong (Customer)

It was surprisingly easy to use, and works very well.
Jørgen Aukland, Dagens Næringsliv (Newspaper), Norway

Our testers praised the braking system which is handled very well after a familiarization phase. (Europe’s largest roller ski test), Germany

Roller ski revolution! I am simply impressed.
