What The Experts Say

The world's greatest ski teams and racers can't be wrong.

 

Over the past decade, the Skier's Edge has been recognized by the best ski teams
in the world for its conditioning value and ski specific applications. The
Skier's Edge is such a vital part of their training and conditioning programs
that it can be found in their training centers in their athletes homes,
plus it travels with them worldwide.

What the US National Ski Teams Say

"The US Ski Team has been using the Skier's Edge World Cup Plyometric Power year round as part of our race program. We have learned that the athletes are able to develop the anaerobic system in a very progressive way while using these sport specific components. The high intensity that the athletes are able to produce on the Skier's Edge World Cup Plyometric Power develops the anaerobic system very effectively. Overall, we see the Skier's Edge as a great tool for preparing our athletes for the intense load involved in ski racing."
US Ski Team Sport Science Dept

"I use the World Cup Plyometric Power to simulate my racing movement patterns, while allowing me to accumulate lactate levels similar to those I produce while racing and training on snow."

Ted Ligety - U.S. SKI TEAM Olympic Gold Medalist, World Cup Overall GS Champion

"The Skier's Edge World Cup Plyometric Machine replicates the essential eccentric loading that takes place in every turn I make on snow. It is difficult to find a training tool that allows for this type of work load."

TJ Lanning - National DH Champion- '07 Worlds, '07&'09 World Cup DH

"The Skier's Edge is a valuable resource when on snow training isn't available. The snow isn't always there, but my Skier's Edge is. I couldn't have made my comeback without countless interval sessions, single leg, double leg and core on my Skier's Edge machine."

Sarah Schleper- USA ALPINE SKI TEAM MEMBER, 2010 OLYMPIAN, 3-TIME US NATIONAL CHAMPION

What the Canadian National Ski Teams Say

"An excellent substitute to skiing. Great for my rehabilitation, mental imagery, and keeping the skiing spirit. I am a member of the Canadian National Ski Team (Espoir) and I find the Skier's Edge to be a great training aid during off season periods. Recently I fractured my pelvis and the Skier's Edge helps a lot in rehab, and I never feel as if I've missed a day of skiing."
Lindsey R. - Rossland, BC CANADIAN NATIONAL SKI TEAM

"...My business is rehabilitating and training elite athletes. The Skier's Edge Black Diamond is not only an invaluable tool in helping my athletes and clients reset their proprioceptive clocks and improve balance reactions, but is as well an excellent tool to optimize sport specific energy system training."

Carl Petersen - BPE, BSc (PT), Dir. of Sport Science & Medicine, CANADIAN NATIONAL SKI TEAM

"This year I have been really working on getting over my outside ski. The Skier's Edge is a great tool for helping you achieve this."

Allison Forsyth - CANADIAN NATIONAL SKI TEAM

What the Austrian National Ski Teams Say

"...We have found the Skier's Edge to be extremely effective in the training and conditioning of our athletes. We use it as a serious and most efficient tool in the process of setting the athlete's balance clock. It is an important piece of equipment for us."
Werner Margreiter - Head Coach, AUSTRIAN NATIONAL SKI TEAM

What the Norwegian National Ski Teams Say

"...with its different levels of difficulty you can build up your body strength to handle all kinds of slopes. Skier's Edge is the closest you get to the mountain, and is the perfect workout machine for all skiers including the very top World Cup and Olympic athletes."

Jan Ove Nystuen - Head Coach, NORWEGIAN NATIONAL SKI TEAM

What the German National Ski Teams Say

"...The German National Ski Team uses the Skier's Edge in all year-round preparation. We get tremendous help in building up certain abilities for our top athletes. The movements on the Skier's Edge are the same as real skiing (open leg position, independent work of both legs, canting) and therefore very important for our training and building up leg power. In addition, we work on balance and coordinative exercise. For these aims we can imagine no better training machine."
Rainer Mutschler Alpine Director - Men's Head Coach, GERMAN NATIONAL SKI TEAM

What the Swiss National Ski Teams Say

"The Swiss Team has used the Skier's Edge for 9 years now with great success! It is part of our inventory and goes with us everywhere from training camps to the World Cup circuit. Many skiers remain advanced only on groomed slopes. What is required to be an expert on the whole mountain is power and confidence. If you use the Skier's Edge every day, you will gain the power and confidence to leave the groomed trails and ski the whole mountain. The Skier's Edge is as essential to skiing as skis, boots and poles."
Theo Nadig - Head Coach, SWISS NATIONAL SKI TEAM

"...What brings us more benefit is the movement which you can get with the Skier's Edge, a lot of repetition of strength of movement. ...With the Black Diamond you double up your benefits and for balance it's a super exercise. ...We always have some units in our equipment truck as they replace an entire fitness room."

Francois Sedan - Men's Head Coach, SWISS NATIONAL SKI TEAM

What the Top Athletes Say

"The All Mountain Master gives me the feeling of the big fast turns I like to do up in the glaciers. The Powder/Mogul Master reminds me of skiing the really deep powder in the trees. We have both models in our gym in Blue River."

Mike Wiegele - THE PIONEER OF DEEP POWDER SKIING

"...What makes the machine so much fun is that it imitates that rebounding, side-to-side feeling that I experience when I'm having a really good run."

E P Cooper • Lincolnshire

I was very pleased with the advice I received when enquiring about which model to choose and eventually settled on the Big Mountain with All mountain Master. Having placed the order I was very impressed with the speedy delivery (next day!).

I will happily recommend the skiers edge as an effective training aid to anyone thinking of a purchase and as I work at the local Dry Ski Slope I expect to recommend it quite a few times!
