Roller Ski Pole Tips for Grip and Speed
Roller ski pole tips, often also called ferrules, are what are found at the bottom of your roller ski poles. They are made specifically for use on hard surfaces and are what connects with the asphalt during your roller ski sessions.
It goes without saying that there will be a different feeling with the ground compared to regular ski poles in snow. They are designed to resist the tough, hard surfaces that you will be skiing on while also helping generate great power.
How Do You Sharpen Rollerski Ferrules?
To make sure that you get the best experience on the asphalt and maximize your performance, it’s important to sharpen the ferrules regularly. This is a simple task and all you need is a diamond file or sharpener. Simply move the file back forth on the angled side of the ferrule tip until it is looking and feeling sharp. After continuous sharpening, there will come a time when it makes more sense to buy a new set of roller ski tips.
Rollerski Pole Grips Enhance Power Transfer
Rollerski pole grips give the skier control over their poles as they push forwards to generate momentum. They can be made from materials such as natural cork, rubber or plastic and many models are the same ones used in cross country skiing.
Rollerski pole strap replacements can be purchased when your old ones are no longer functional or you have changed to a different pole grip system. Roller ski pole straps often come in different sizes, so this is something to keep in mind when selecting new ones. As with cross country ski poles, some brands have come up with specific locking mechanisms for the straps and handles, making it easy and convenient to connect your hands to the ski poles. Be sure to check that the grips and straps are compatible with each other.
