Annotation
The article presents the classification of the roller skis depending on the destination and method of transportation, since the choice of the sports equipment is based on the technique and skill of the athlete. It considers the materials and dimensions of the existing platforms and wheels of the roller skis, kinds of used bearings. It recommends the ski binding. Within the training process it is recommended to use more steady rubber wheels and flexible platform, and for the competitive activities – polyurethane wheels and rigid platform. It proposes method for the calculating the optimum length of the roller ski poles depending on the height of the athlete and relief of roads; it shows the angle of their grinding, and installation methods. Resource of the velocity and the service life of the roller skis depend on the timely made processing of bearings, which are interacted with the water or contaminated environment. It describes and illustrates various ways for taking care of the bearings of the wheels of the roller skis, including the partial dismantling and washing. Reasonable selection, terms of use and features for the treatment of equipment determine the velocity properties and wear resistance of the roller skis.
Keywords: roller skiing, platforms, material of wheels, ski bearings, length of the ski poles, ski binding, roller ski care.
