A Biomechanical Analysis of Roller Skiing Techniques: The Diagonal Stride and the One-Step Double Pole
MetadataShow full item record
Three citizen class cross-country skiers who had previous roller skiing experience were filmed performing a diagonal stride and a one-step double pole on a level rubber-asphalt surface. A comparison of the roller skiing diagonal stride technique with elite snow skiing diagonal stride technique showed that roller skiing is faster and may influence body position if not used on an incline or with other resistance. A comparison of the diagonal stride and the one-step double pole showed that the roller skiers traveled faster and farther per stride using the one-step double pole technique.
