Skibob – practical examples

We start on the skibob, i.e. step by step

1. Familiarisation with mini skis
He/she who has no experience with skiing, he/she starts with bases of mini skis riding, i.e. slow downhill riding, curves, slip braking, ride on the ski tow and standing stability.  This all without the skibob. This is very simple and funny stage. The ride on mini skis is very similar to skating. 

Those who have basic skiing skills can start right with the skibob. Attention! Always start with the skibob at the slight slope!

2. Going up the slope
There are no limitations on the slope; you can use any ski tow, bench or gondola. 
– On the ski tow be standing on the mini skis and keep the skibob between your knees, leant on your thighs 

– On the bench keep the skibob put on the barrier or your knees – thus you occupy more than one place provided the traffic is not too busy. If more skiers go up, sit only on the edge seats with your skibob. Always keep the skibob with one hand at least to avoid its fall down from the bench tow!

3. Basic sitting position on the skibob
Sit comfortably on the skibob, seize the handles (like on the bicycle) and straddle away your legs. (In the curves, the inside leg serves as the support. If you leg is too near to the skibob or really on the skibob, it cannot provide the necessary support in curving). This is very frequent fault of beginners; think on it during your ride. 

4. Curving
The same like in bicycling just use the handle bars and turn your head in the curing direction. It is very natural and simple. The skibob is obedient and goes where you turn the handle bars.

5. Breaking
For breaking, we use edges of the whole skibob (slip breaking) and at the same time we help with mini skis. We can also break in the snowplough style or with mini skis rear end. In no case lift the handle bars. It is necessary to be always leant on the handle bars. If you lift up the handle bars, the frontal ski can loose the touch with the slope and there is the risk of skibob side crash and fall.

6. Carving ride
Go down the hill in slow curves. The riding speed in carving bows depends only on your skills and certainty. At the tilting into the curve, the rider body axe shall be in the skibob axe (the rider shall not tilt more or less than the skibob. When looking from the frontal view, the rider as well as the skibob shall be in one axe).

7. Drifting
On the steeper slopes where the carving ride cannot be used (the skibob speeds up too much, or there is not enough of space on the slope) we go down by drifting (slipping).    

8. Change of the gravity centre
This factor considerably influences the skibob manoeuvrability. The seat has some recess to suit the rider during the whole period of skibob riding.  The recess is intentionally only minor so that the rider can move back or towards during the ride and thus change the gravity centre and adapt the riding style to the actual needs. For example: if you move towards – your weight moves towards and the skibob is more willing to turn (slalom, quick drifting, difficult slope sections).  Moving the gravity centre back is used for the rapid downhill riding.  

9. Transport of the skibob
In the car, in the roof box or behind the driver’s seat. Assembled or disassembled. It depends only on you. The assembly after the total disassembly takes only 10 minutes (frame, seat, absorber and handle bars). But is it not always necessary. We recommend tilting the handle bars (to release two screws) – it takes only 30 seconds.  

Get experience and be regardful on the skibob  

Based on our experience, the skibob riding is very intuitive. That is why most of beginners is able to down the hill after 2 up 4 hours of training, this all in the speed and style of average skiers and snowboarders. At the beginning, please forget the black slope and get the certainty and skills before.  
Please, be reasonable and regardful on the skibob. Think of your safety and of the safety of those around you. The majority of you weight is on the skibob, thus your legs are under the minimum load, and in case of any crash the risk of injury is less than in case of skiers or snowboarders. You surely do not intend to injure or endanger anybody. This won’t happen if you use your common sense and observe the rules for slope traffic.  

More about the skibob

What the skibob is?

Skibob is one of ways how to go down the snowy slopes. The rider sits on the skibob and is in touch with the slope thanks to two skis fixed on the skibob in one line (the frontal one is steerable) and to shorter skis fixed on feet (foot ski).

A bit of history

The first mention of skibob dates in the year 1892 when the American Stevens patented the first skibob. In fifties of 20th century the Austrian E. Brenter completes the skibob with mini ski fixed on rider’s feet. Thanks to them the rider gets another two contact points with the slope and thus the increased safety in skibob riding. Mini skis are only little bit longer than the boot and thus the risk of ski jamming and subsequent leg fracture is eliminated. Originally the skibob was one of few options for people with troubles with knees how to do alpine skiing but very soon it has got the popularity also among healthy people. In the year 1961 the International skibob federation – FISB – has been established. Today it has its office in Munich and associates about 20 national skibob federations among which the most important as Austria, Czech Republic, Germany, Switzerland, France, USA, Canada, Great Britain and Poland belong. Since 1967 the World championship is held every year and recently also the series of the World Cup. The competition includes the downhill race, slalom, giant slalom, super G and the parallel slalom. 

Czech riders belong to the absolute world top which is confirmed for example by 22 medals from the World Championship and the European Championship of Alena Hrbková (born Hanousková), 29 titles of the World champion of Irena Francová- Dohnálková and 30 titles of the World championship of World Cup final results of Alena Housová

Speed records 

There is an interesting and independent category of the skibob sport focused on speed records on the so-called flying kilometre. It is extremely dangerous discipline.  It is necessary to find the steepest and the longest slope for these attempts. Then the snow is smoothed down and rammed down, usually manually as the slope is so steep that no machinery can enter it. When the terrain is suitably adapted, two electronic measuring gates are places at the distance of 500 metres (on the upper and the lower slope section). The racer aims to ride the skibob at the maximum speed between these gates. The time of measured section is converted at km/hr. The racer has to repeat it again in the second race. Both results are converted in an average result. Today the world speed record value on the skibob is 204 km/hr. In case of ski it is 251 km/hr.

Do you wonder why there is such difference between the world speed ski and skibob record? There is only one simple reason – the length of skis. The longer the skis are, the faster you go down. Skiers of this discipline use much longer skis than it is possible for the skibob.  

Equipment of the rider (according to FISB)

The rider uses the single-track steerable skibob that shall be equipped with the front steerable ski and the following rear ski in the same line. The obligatory equipment includes also 2 mini ski fixed on feet of the racer. The skibob as well as skis can be produced of any material. For all disciplines of seniors as well as juniors the maximum length of skibob is defined at 230 cm with allowed variation up to 5 cm and at the maximum weight 23 kg plus 0,5 kg of tolerance. For the age group of children the skibob length is defined at the maximum 230 cm and its weight must not exceed 13 kg. The length of ski is unified for all disciplines and all age groups and is determined at the maximum allowable clearance length 55 cm with the tolerance of 5 cm. It is not allowed to use any supplementary weights in order to increase the total weight of the skibob, for example by the lead jacket, and the racer can use only the usual clothing. The closed helmet belongs to the obligatory equipment of the racer according to FISB. It is allowed to use the opened helmet for the slalom and the parallel slalom.  

Recommended equipment 

Analogous to the skiing or the snowboarding, the basic equipment includes the suitable waterproof trousers, the quality helmet with fitting ski glasses and ski gloves. We also recommend using the hip spine protector. The security straps preventing the mini ski to run away as well as the lock against the skibob theft during the refreshment in the ski centre are advised.  In addition, the small bag used on bicycle frame could be also useful. Here you can store your cards, car keys and other small objects that could be inconvenient being stored in your pockets during your ride.

Main advantages of skibob

Safety – the most important matter of our skibobs 

We accentuate the quality of production and the safety of our skibobs.  That is why we have invited the best professionals in developing our frames. The choice of correct frame dimensions and the suspension provide the skibob and the rider with better comfort. Thanks to skis fixed on the rider’s feet the risk of rollover is maximally eliminated.  

Just sit on and ride the skibob 

The skibob is the excellent solution for those who do not want to dedicate several days for subsequent and slow improvement on skies or snowboard. Our experience shows that the beginning skibob rider can go down the slope after 2 up 4 hours of training, safely in the speed of average skier. Can anybody say the same in case of ski or snowboard?

The basic presumption does not include the age, the physical condition even not the experience. You only need to know to bicycle (balancing is similar to cycling) and to master basic ski (skating) skills. It means the breaking with slide slip and the snow plough stopping and the capability to stay stable on mini ski when using the ski tow.  

He/she who has no experience of skiing, he/she has to master the bases, i.e. the prudent downhill run, the breaking with slide slip and the stability when standing on mini ski. So far this all without the skibob. It is very simple and funny stage. The skiing on mini ski is very similar to skating.  

Those who have the basic experience of skiing can start to learn riding the skibob right now.  Whilst when learning to ski or snowboard you cannot avoid any falls due to front-rear stability failure, this is not possible with skibob as the sitting on the seat is very sure. On the skibob you have the contact with 3 up 4 places of the ski slope – depending on the riding style (two mini ski and two skibob skis).

Skibob equals to the comfort 

Everybody who spent three days on skis or the snowboard knows how muscles can hurt. This is not possible with the skibob. It’s thanks to the comfortable sitting on the skibob.  Skibob from Skibobs.euFeet with mini ski only “glide” on the snow and help to keep the balance and stability during riding. Thanks to the seat shape, similar to the motorbike seat, the riding the skibob is much more comfortable than riding the bicycle. The skibob rider is not leaned forward so much than on the bike so the back does not suffer so much. That is why you can enjoy even one week riding with the skibob without having troubles to ascend the stair in the evening. Not only leisure sportsmen but also those with health troubles appreciate it. Knees, hips and the backbone are much more times loaded than on the skibob. As explained above, the weight of your body leans on the ski bob, whereas your feet only freely slide on the snow. Who can stop on the slope and comfortably enjoy lively views? Only you because you sit on the convenient seat covered with the real leather. And, after taking pleasure in the view or after waiting for other members of your group who profess skiing or snowboarding, and after they take a rest, you can get back in action!

No limitation with skibob 

Skibob is especially suitable for those lovers of winter pleasures who cannot ski or snowboard due to health troubles (troubles with knees, hips or backbone, with lower limb amputation etc…) at all or only within the limited scope. And they are not few. 

Based on our experience we know that people with health troubles skied one half a day with difficulties but on the seat of skibob they were able to go down on alpine slopes for several days with the smile on their faces.  

Skibob, it mainly means new experiences 

Skibob is the excellent way for all actual skiers and snowboarders who desire to get new experiences and have fun on the snow

On the skibob, you are simply original 

Do you like to attract the attention? Even dressed only in white, nobody overlooks you on the skibob. – models

With its construction and the riding style the skibob mostly reminds of BMX bike. The philosophy of our concept is based on this similarity. To use and to combine the up-to-date knowledge from the cycling domain (especially from the MBX segment) and the ski and skibob domain. The carefully chosen diameters of frame tubes, the optimum angle of head tube, the optimal length of the upper frame tube, the clear and simple frame line, perfectly welded joints, and this all ensure the perfect frame function of our skibob.

The engineers who participated in the construction of our skibob belong to the world top experts in this domain.

A series of components of our skibob is made by the perfect machining using the CNC machines. We have entrusted the production of skis to the renowned company with long term experience of which skis are used also by the Czech skibob representation and some of German ski sportsmen. The seats of our skibobs are hand-made and sewn from the real leather or the hi-tech material used also for racing motorbike saddles. Handlebars, head composition, stem, grips, seat absorber, this all is chosen regarding the quality, your safety and comfort. Thanks to our responsible approach, cooperation with real professionals and to our nearly twenty years´ experience in the metal production, metallurgy and sport the really top product has been created.

Although our skibobs are primarily determined for amateurs they conform to all criteria of FISB (International skibob federation).
