    Unpack and roll! Correct tire pressure, mounted wheels and brakes and much more. Right out of the box!

Skike v8 LIFT Cross 2R has a 2 piece frame with a permanent heel lift. due to the heel lift the riding feeling is very close to cross country skiing with bindings. Skike v8 LIFT Cross is used with regular shoes (Sportshoes, Outddoorshoes etc.).

Compared to older models Skike v8 LIFT Cross has several upgrades. The belts are made of more endurable material and there are quick release levers on the tires, the brakes and the calf frames. Another new feature are the 9-Spoke rims. The front tires include reverse lock bearings as known from classic skirollers.

With 540mm wheelbase Skike V8 has excellent direction stability and quietness.

Optionally the Skike v8 LIFT Cross can be equipped with PU wheels. PU wheels make the skates faster, but will also reduce offroad abilities.

We believe Skike v8 LIFT is a great skate with many features to guarantee a good fun workout for a long time. Due to the permanent heel lift, we believe that beginners without cross country skiing or cross skating experience will need more time to get used to the skates compared to Skike V7 Fix which does not have a heel lift.

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.
