Swix June Challenge

Are you up for some serious roller skiing?

The summer season is here and it’s time to roll the pavement.

Want to learn more about rollerskiing? Visit this site.

Like skiing on snow, roller skiing exercises your arms, legs and core, and it’s great for your fitness in general. Roller skiing is a must-do activity for everyone who wants to increase their specific strength in advance for the winter season.

Let’s start by focusing on the upcoming month.

We challenge you to complete these two roller ski exercises:

  • An interval session. Choose for yourself what kind of interval you do, but it has to be done on roller skis.

    Need some inspiration? Check out this training program
  • 75 minutes or more. Go out and enjoy nature, the good weather or explore your local area. Go wherever you want, but the trip has to last for at least 75 minutes.

Can you complete both exercises in June?
All you have to do to enter the competition is to log the activity on Strava and post a photo with the text “Swix challenge completed” in the Swix club.

Three participants who complete the challenge will get a set of training clothes from Swix.

Buying new roller ski gear?
Check out our Swix Roadline roller skis and poles.

Remember: Always take care of your safety when roller skiing: Wear a helmet, follow the traffic rules and control your speed.

Good luck.

Who’s up for our Nordic World Ski Championship Challenge?

The Nordic World Ski Championship, which takes place in Oberstdorf in Germany later this month, is one of the biggest skiing events this winter.

The championship ends with two legendary races: 30k for women and 50k for the men.

Can you stand the longest distance?

We challenge you to complete a distance of 50k or 30k. You can choose when, where, and your own tempo - but the whole distance needs to be completed on the same day.

Ski without poles - win a drink belt

Skiing without poles is an excellent way to practice your technique. It forces you to work with your weight transfer, kick, and balance.

The Norwegian pro skier Mikael Gunnulfsen reveals in last week’s episode of the podcast “Skisporet”, that he often drops the poles to improve his skiing skills.

Mikael and Skisporet.no now give you this challenge to complete:
Do a session without using your poles next time your skiing. Please take a photo and post it in the Swix club on Strava. We will draw one winner that gets a water belt from Swix.

Winner: Håvard Njå from Norway
