3 / REGULAR MAINTENANCE
OF EQUIPMENT

Your equipment needs regular maintenance to keep up the performance of your roller skis. Learn a few good habits and the maintenance is quite easy:
►  Switch the right and left skis regularly to avoid uneven use of the rollers
►  After each outing, wipe a cloth over your roller skis and the mudguards to clean and dry them and protect them from rust.
►  Oil your bearings occasionally with a lubricator
►  Protect your roller skis in a protective case on your trips and for storage.
►  Store your roller skis in a dry place
►  Regularly check the screws, the rubber on your rollers and the state of the bearings and replace them quickly when worn.

4 - REPLACING
THE ROLLERS

Our INOVIK skate roller skis come with two gliding rollers as standard:
► Rollers: slow speed.
► Diameter =100 mm - Width = 24 mm
► Hardness 75 shore A, the hardness affects the grip, stability and vibrations. A 75 shore corresponds to a slow roller(same feeling as on snow)
► Watertight bearing 608 2RS:
► The width of the rollers is 36 mm, spacers included, on the roller skis 500 skate.

It is important to replace the rollers quickly with new ones once they are worn.
We generally recommend that you opt for rollers that are the same brands as your roller skis.

Changing the rollers on your roller skis is fairly easy to do with a little equipment.
You can do it yourself or entrust this task to a professional by making an appointment in one of our Decathlon workshops.

5 - REPLACING A DAMAGED BEARING

To remove the bearing:
► Lie the roller flat on an open bench vice, slightly wider than the outer diameter of the bearing. (resting on the aluminium rim).
► Insert a screw with a head diameter than fits the bearing hole, ideally a CHC type screw (or one with a fully flat head)
► Tap lightly with a hammer on the end of the screw at a slight angle so that the bearing is driven inside and downwards by the screw head.
Regularly move the screw during the process to balance out the push and so that the bearing comes out parallel to the roller.

Don't hesitate to visit a Decathlon workshop if you can’t manage this step.
