Powerslide has launched the Skeleton 2 in 2015. It is based in the two ancestors Skeleton I and Skeleton Lite. All in all the Skeleton Lite had more influence on the Skeleton 2, which for example can be seen on the velcro straps of the shoe binding. The concept is to give the cross skaters excellent stability with maximum comfort.

The Skeleton 2 is used with own shoes which makes it very variable to multiple cross skaters. Best shoes to use are some with a relatively hard and rather slender sole (street sneakers etc.). The binding gives you great stability and much comfort which is particularly welcome among beginners.

Like all Powerslide Nordic Cross Skates launched in 2015 the Skeleton 2 has the new patented brake installed on the right Cross Skate. The new Cuff Brake has a metal brake pad and is very strong. You can set it easily to an ideal position according to your skating style. You brake by moving the right skate forward. This automatically moves your calf back and triggers the brake.

The LEKI Alu Vario CC is an aluminium pole that can be adjusted to various lengths. This comes handy when different people use the same poles or when you adjust the pole lenghts to your growing Cross Skating skills.

The locking components are of high quality and can endure pressure up to 140kg. LEKI is one of the leading companies when it comes to ski and nordic walking poles and their experience is integrated in the LEKI Alu Vario CC as well.

This LEKI pole comes with the LEKI Speed tip.

Another advantage of these poles is the use of the Trigger Shark system. It allows you to connect and disconnect easily with your poles at any time. A maximum of flexibility and power transfer are the result of this innovative system. For colder days, LEKI also offers gloves that work with the Trigger Shark system.

Proper pole length for skating

Recommended pole length Please fill all fields!


This is a calculated value. You can choose poles that differ by +3cm or -3cm.

You should / could order longer poles than the chart shows if you:

  • have a lot of strength in your arms
  • have a very flexible shoulder area
  • tend to have your body rather straight while pushing off with the poles
  • are experienced and use the poles very precisely
  • plan to skate mostly on roads or easy off-road surfaces
  • intend to have a very high intensive workout with a higher heart rate

You should / could order smaller poles than the chart shows if you:

  • lack strength in your arms
  • lack flexibility in your shoulder area
  • tend to bend down low when pushing off with the poles
  • plan to go off-road cross skating often

Poles with variable length

Some Nordic Skating poles are variable in length (e.g LEKI BLADE VARIO). They are very helpful for pinning down the pole length which best suits you. But make sure you have good quality poles, as variable poles, lacking good fixation, can be the cause of injury.
