This device brings the cross-country ski trail to your living room. The user moves the poles as in real cross-country skiing and so gains an optimal training effect for the whole body. To achieve highly realistic simulation, it was important to the developers that the slides move very smoothly along the rails. The movement should also make as little noise as possible, so that the equipment can be used in the home without causing problems. These conditions were optimally achieved with a drylin® linear guide. The ski poles are each mounted on a linear guide with a slide.
