“FLEX ISN’T something I think of with rollerskis with metal shafts,” one tester noted after getting back to the car. “But these sure provided it.” Pursuit incorporates an innovative spring steel fork and a low frame height into all models, they say, to create a ski that flexes incredibly naturally—at the ends—and feels close to skiing on snow. Their design also distributes the weight in a way that simulates the swing of a skate ski on snow. Weight is reduced by a series of holes through the side of the shaft. Pursuit notes that while people aren’t usually as concerned about weight when rollerskiing (compared to ski racing) it can actually make a big difference in fatigue on a long-distance roll. An optional pull cord brake can be purchased with the skis for $40.
