Is a thought that springs to mind :-)
Had toyed with a pair myself, but when to fit it all in became the question!
Welcome to the "club". I did my second roller ski this season, first time on skaters.
I hope you do have a dedicated set of poles with special rollerski carbide tips.
Regular tips wear out immediately from the pavement. Even so, I sharpen mine everytime I go out - I have a handy electric sharpening wheel.
Used them some last year. I need to investigate the built-in friction feature. I'd like to have an easy glide on a flat surface tho more work to propel forward might translate into a "better result". With boots & skates remaining in the car trunk, poleless options (current car is a bit small for poles taking up residency) exist in many places in local Concord..."ride & glide"?:).
