Not unless you are a ski racer yourself, and were lucky enough to get top of the line equipment. World Cup skiers get the best race skis that their factory makes. They have many different pairs of the same type (downhill skis, for example) that they will test to see which are the fastest. Race skis are highly specialized and differ greatly from demo skis or skis that the public usually buys. You can see this reflected in the price. Race skis typically run $800-$1000 for the skis, not including bindings.
Finding a retail store that sells women's Roxy skis is not a very challenging thing to do at all. One can easily buy women's Roxy skis on the website Skis.
usually anywhere you can buy atomic alpine skis
The main site for Rossignol skis becomes available if "buy Rossignol skis" is typed into the search bar. On the site from there, click on the "online store" button located at the top right of the page. For skis, click the "hardgoods store" section, located on the left side of the screen. From there, depending on the type of ski being purchased, either click "Alpine" or "Nordic" in the products section, and then "skis". Both come up with a subcategory of different kinds of skis. To save money, there are a number of websites that pop up for the same skis at a discounted price, underneath the main site, when the words "buy Rossignol skis" are typed into the search bar.
I have found that some good websites for buying cross country skis are skis.com, xcskishop.com, orscrosscountryskis.com, etc. These are very reputable websites for skis
I posted this question and I'm wondering because I'd like to start skiing with my young son. I used to ski a little, but now I weigh 250 pounds (I'm 5'9"). It's hard for me to get up the courage to go into a ski shop. Do you think I could buy skate skis online... or should I suck it up and go into a shop? Are their some kinds of skate skis that are better than others for heavy skiers? Thanks!
You can purchase cheap skis at sites like The-House. They are currently offering 70% off on their products. Another cheap place to buy skis would be Amazon or eBay.
Although I am not personally familiar with the Karhu brand of skis, I have found a few sites that offer this brand of skis. You can try The Next Adventure site as well as both Amazon and Ebay.
It depends on what model of skis they are and how long they were used. If you go to a ski shop they can tell you and they might even buy it from you.
go onto the website and look at products then see the website you can buy it on then get it.
