Cross-country skis

With the Olympics approaching, ski makers are upping their game. This season we have expanded our range of classic skis, with three Salomon 'Skin' skis in our classic range. Skin skis allow you to dispense with grip waxing, for a more hassle-free skiing experience, and are particularly useful when snow conditions are around zero, and grip wax is difficult to get right.

We continue to sell Salomon's top S/Lab and S/Race Skating and Classic skis, which are among the best skis on the market for racing, and are the choice of GB's Andrew Musgrave. These are great skis if you want to be serious about racing, in ski marathons or national championships, or if you just want to ski faster. And we also stock Salomon's RS 8 Skating and RC 8 Classic skis, which are a good choice for the less serious racer, or first time cross-country skier.

Packages including skis, boots and poles are available here.

The length of the ski is based mainly on your weight, see the selection below. We ask for your weight to the nearest KG, to select the best skis at the correct ski length. If you are not sure which skis to go for, please email info@rollerski.co.uk, or call us on 020 8348 2540 for more advice.

Prices include delivery within the UK (excluding Scottish Highlands & Islands). For overseas and Scottish Highlands & Islands customers we have an extra shipping charge, which you can add here. Free ski ties.
