V1-Offset: What the science says about timing and pole positions
I just finished up a new video course about V1-Offset technique based on a research paper from 2015.
The scientists studied 15 elite male skiers from the Austrian, Norwegian and Swedish national teams, including 9 skiers ranked in the top 20 in the world.
They used a roller ski treadmill, pressure sensors and a motion capture system to quantify aspects of the skiers’ technique, including pole positioning and timing.
If you’re like me, and think we should look to top skiers for insights about ski technique, then these videos will be of interest.
The full video course runs ~40 minutes and also includes information about forces, speed and performance.
If you want to view the full course, as well as many other excellent videos, I suggest you take advantage of our “End of Season Special” and sign up to our membership site, XC Ski Nation. We also have a 24 hour free access option. It’s like trying on a dress before you buy ;)
