Description
A sitski with fiberglass seat mounted on a suspended stand on a downhill ski. The stand has a specially designed shock absorber that is individually adjustable. The frame can be raised in order to ride the chair lift.

Model: Sitski Impakt

Ski poles have handles like crutches. A strap attaches the pole around the forearm. On the bottom is a folding ski for the pole.
Folding the ski pole up provides a grip in icy snow and on the slopes.

Users comments
The ski is suitable for persons with lower injuries. It is not a competition sitski.
