The Snow Skate
The original and real Snow Skate has now been reinvented and with a quite new and functional design - in high quality materials - hard wood mahogany and with stainless steel runners. The big advantage is that traditional leather boots with a heel can be used, and as such there is no demand for any special boots. The key to the fun and also challenging use of the snow skate, is the easy tie-technique, necessary for a fully satisfying use of the skate.
Design and construction of the new Snow Skate is based on experiences from Faroe Islands and older version from the 1930s, and has now been optimized for perfect functional performance, and has got a perfect combination to width and height, each specific to meet the best use. The foot base ensures the skate does not infringe the boot, and also the height counteract heel and bumping into snow.
The skate is designed with a slight bend in front which is sufficient for a smooth skating.The decisive factor is that the rail is not too wide, to optimize the management, and not too narrow to avoid sinking through solid or hard snow. The metal runner is 14mm wide in stainless steel and is fitted with recessed screws.
