Summer Time Nordic Sports - Give it a Try on a Pair of Skikes Today
Not sure what winter is going to bring to Western Pennsylvania, with El Nino saying one thing and snow covered Siberia saying something else. The one thing I do know that spending some of the snowless time on Roller Skis and Skikes will make those snowy weekends all the more enjoyable. Spent Saturday afternoon with a couple friends going up and down sections of the Linn Run Road. Great preseason ski. I loved how well the Skikes liked going down the hill, allowing me to stay in control.

Enjoy the outdoors? Love the trails of Pennsylvania and beyond. Skiking may be the activity for you. With their pneumatic tires and excellent braking system, Skikes are a great way to get outside. It is a wonderful all-round activity similar to Nordic skiing that will engage 90 percent of your muscles for an enjoyable and complete workout.
Skike Pennsylvania is currently has a product display at the Tandem Connection, a bicycle shop located on the montour trail in hendersonville, pennsylvania. A skike pennsylvania representative will be at the shop at least one day per week. Check the events calendar to the right for the days they will be there. Stop by and check them out.
The Skike v8 Lift series, is the newest series of Skikes, and builds upon the previous models with a lift system that allows the heal to leave the ski platform, similar to that of a nordic ski boot and ski. This allows both wheels to stay in contact with the ground when skating and with some models that have a ratcheting bearing assembly, allows the Skiker to use a classical ski technique.
Most models of the lift series use pneumatic tires that work well on a variety of surfaces. I have found that they grip well on the many different surfaces and surface conditions, including the crushed limestone trails found in Pennsylvania.
Contact Skike Pennsylvania or stop by at the Tandem Connection sometime to check a pair out.
One of the great reasons to Skike is that it is fun. It allows you to zip along trails like a human powered Segway, getting a good workout and enjoying the great outdoors. It is a great all-round exercise similar to cross-country roller skiing, but with the benefits of a great braking system and the ability to roll a variety of different surfaces. The secret of Skike's off-road capabilities lies in its profiled pneumatic tires. They can easily be inflated and allow athletes to explore all types of terrain while protecting their joints. With Skike, 90 percent of your muscles are engaged, providing a fun, and complete workout.
