With regular sessions using the SkiA Sweetspot Ski Trainer, of just a few minutes at a time, you will learn the skill that lies behind the controlled, apparently effortless skiing of elite performers: how to center your balance around the 'sweetspot'.
Of all the technical elements in skiing, centered balance around this sweetspot is the No. 1 priority in improving style, control, and performance. Put quite simply, if you're not using the sweetspot effectively, you'll never be as good a skier as you could be. Yet often, even experienced skiers wrongly believe the sweetspot to be under the toes or ball of the foot. The SkiA Sweetspot Ski Trainer is the only piece of ski training equipment designed specifically to show you how to find and balance on exactly the right point, allowing your body to work as one with your skis and boots.
To use the gadget, you simply clip it onto your ski boots and push in your chosen balance blocks. The blocks come in four sizes. The largest are the green blocks, ideal for beginners. The smallest, the black blocks, provide a challenge even for experienced professionals.
The trainer comes with a detailed manual that contains a series of carefully structured ski trainer exercises plus additional tried-and-tested drills for use on the slopes. The manual provides a surefire method for learning to use the techniques of dynamic centered balance as the key to becoming a safe, fast, and stylish skier.
Here’s what a couple of top skiers have to say about it:
