In the media: “Ny revolutionerande längdskida framtagen i Luleå”

Published: 7 March 2016

The newspaper Kuriren writes about researchers at Luleå University of Technology that develops a new ski for poling. It is a collaboration with the company Elpex and a Finnish ski manufacturer. Several skiers had planned to use the new ski during yesterday's Vasalopp.

– The glide is amazing. They also feel incredibly stable, especially when poling in slack counter and when the direction changes, says Andreas Almqvist, Associate Professor of Machine Elements, to the newspaper Kuriren.

If the ski was a success during Vasaloppet is unclear but Andreas Almqvist did a strong performance and skied the nine mile in 4 hours, 47 minutes and 4 seconds.
