Hi There everyone,
I recently started taking lessons. I have some trouble with the slow slalom movement. When I steer all the way to one side, it has effect on my grip. It causes me to rev the bike when I steer to the left or not rev enough when I steer to the right. (I am already revving quite a lot and managing power with the clutch when doing this movement). I was wondering if someone could give me some positional tips to help me with this.
I was looking to purchase some fis slalom skis, not planning on racing or anything just want to have some fun carving some tight turns.
A friend of mine has some atomic 155 fis skis, I am 6 foot 4, 180 and was wondering whether they would be too small for me and I should just go ahead and buy the 165 ones?
thanks in advance
Has anyone tried these?
I’m considering these, but I’m wondering if these are good for slalom, they seem to be. Also, would they be good for wide feet?
If not, does anyone have any other slalom skate recommendations for wide feet? (I’m wanting carbon since I’ve read they are more responsive and form fitting). There are some lower priced models, but the carbon cuff on these seems to be more ideal for slalom.
My first slalom skate, any insight and advice is appreciated. Happy skating lads and lasses

Hello! Advanced beginner skater here and I feel overwhelmed looking for a pair of intermediate inline skates. I would love advice on the boots.
Overall plan: buy one pair of boots and two sets of frames+wheels - one 4x80-84 to do slalom/tricks/city skating, the other 3x110 for city skating/speed/distance of 5-15 miles (maybe eventually a marathon but not within the next year).
I'd buy a complete 4x80 or 84 skate and then 3x110 frames+wheels or vice versa. So I'm open to boots that come with either type of setup.
What I'm looking for in a boot:
-Comfortable enough for at least a couple hours (ideally enough for a rare marathon)
-Light and breathable enough for same reason
-Supportive enough for long distance and slalom (but I won't be doing much aggressive type skating)
-Responsive and maneuverable enough for city skating
-Decent to excellent energy transfer
-Ideally under $300 for the complete skate (not including the second set of frames+wheels) but I could stretch
-Removable liner would be nice [I looked at Seba Trix 2 w rockerable frame but liner is built in :( ]
-I think my feet are pretty average width (in "Women's")
Is this too much to ask for in my price range? Are there other factors I should consider or prioritize? And finally, what boot/complete skate would you recommend oh gosh please help I am so overwhelmed and very grateful for your advice
I've seen videos of people getting 20 k points, is it the affix that gets them bigger multipliers
Are you kidding me?
My Fiat Seicento Rally Spec 969 loses a slalom on dirt against a 996.
Raceinfo says "Quicker 0-60".
What Tahoe's resorts have ski slopes with gates (red and blue poles) to practice intermediate slalom racing? Blue or easy black slopes would be the best option.
I want to work on fast short turns and check myself how I can go through gates. it would be great if the rental can provide slalom poles and protective foot shields. I also may take a one lesson with a slalom instructor.
One more thing - my wife and 4yo daughter are beginners and they would need a nice, long, green slope - something like Sugar'n'Spice at Sierra-at-Tahoe. I like Sierra myself but they have no slalom tracks (lot of snow parks but i don't jump).
Who's your favorite to win the slalom tournament in Cortina on Saturday?
I hope Mikaela wins her fifth world championship gold medal in slalom.
Would be awesome!
I think she's in perfect shape now after a few months out. I hope for the best!
