  • Want to improve your skiing? Get a Skiers Edge

    Feb 5, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Quality of construction, motion is very close to real skiing, unique product
    Cons: Expensive, a bit heavy, takes some effort to get used to it

    Summary: First let me say that I have owned a Skiers Edge for some time and I love it. But before I get to a review of the device, let me make a few points about exercise machines and how they are often reviewed. As someone who prefers to work out at home, I ... read more

    Pros: Easy to assemble; easy to use
    Cons: Pricy but worth it

    Summary: This is an up to date review on the newest model from Skiers Edge 4 versus the older Skiers Edge 3 in previous reviews.  I purchased this off of eBay (be sure to read cautions about doing so on www.skiersedge.com) and am very happy with it.  It ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Fun, effective workout
    Improves skiing
    Well built
    Very friendly customer service
    Cons: Not cheap!
    Accessories are not cheap either!
    Remember maintenance (minimal)

    Summary: I've had the Skiers Edge for three years and I love it. You can get a cardio and/or strengthening workout from it as well as develop muscle memory for improving your skiing. You get out of this machine what you put into it- just as the previous reviewers ... read more

    Pros: Great work out and a good simulation of skiing motion
    Cons: Periodic maintenance is required to maintain the smooth action

    Summary: I am an expert skier, 53 years old and been skiing for over 45 years. I love to chase my 12 year old son through steeps, powder and moguls. Living away from the slopes and getting 15 - 20 days a year of skiing at Jackson Hole, I need a machine that ... read more

    Pros: It is well built but expensive
    Cons: Poor customer service in resolving problem that was explain before purchase.

    Summary: If you are a one-leg skiers like I DO NOT BUY THIS MACHINE! After much consideration I purchase this machine to get into shape for the next ski season. I am a 3 tracker who has gone to the nationals and is member of a ski team. I skied 58 days in poor ... read more

    Oct 23, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Bullet-proof construction, thigh-burning workout, easily upgraded with ski-specific accessories
    Cons: Expensive piece of metal sculpture if you don't use it.

    Summary: We purchased the Skier's Edge III about 7 years ago after my wife suffered an ACL injury playing softball. We also purchased a stationary bike, free weights, and other workout equipment for her to supplement professional rehab sessions at home. Seven ... read more

  • very disappointed

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: a nice attempt at an alpine ski machine
    Cons: noisy, ridiculously expensive, bad ski movements

    Summary: I write a weekly column based on the review of ski-related products. I had tried the original skier's edge about ten years ago and found it to be rather limited in ski movement. Last year, I saw that the company had come out with the new model 4. ... read more

  • Take a brisk walk or jump rope

    Oct 6, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Well Built
    Cons: Expensive, noisy, heavy, completely unimpressive "workout"

    Summary: I had the Skier's Edge III on a 90 day trial, and was happy that I had the option to send it back. Bottom line, I was completely unimpressed with the work out. I was hoping to condition and slim my thighs, and get a cardio workout. After 30 minutes, ... read more

  • Ski Anywhere All Year Round

    Mar 6, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Simple technology that beautifully duplicates the feeling of skiing.
    Cons: Power bands can get a little squeaky.

    Summary: I grew up skiing Sun Valley, Alta, Snowbird and Park City, but since moving east over 12 years ago I've slacked to just a few days a season. That means mega leg burn after a few runs. So I finally gave into years and years of airline magazine ads and ... read more

    Pros: I like the machine
    Cons: The company would not sell me new grips without the new bands.

    Summary: I just called the company to order new grips for the poles. The company refused to sell me the grips unless I purchased new bands for $150.00! It did not make any difference to them that my bands are still in fantastic conditions. What terrible service! ... read more

    Pros: Just another exercise machine for the quads
    Cons: Replacement bands cost $125 and up, every 2 years (MINIMUM) Serious safety issues exist !!!

    Summary: I have tried to deal with the Skiers Edge company over the years and I finally just have to write a review of the machine and company. Firstly, the machine is made using elastomeric bands that the company REQUIRES you to replace every 2 years or they ... read more
