Technique

Out of signs and features get to know the basic skating technique also.

Double-Push technique

  • Double push is an inline speed skating technique.
  • Its major advantage over the previously practised “classic” technique is that it allows the skater to do useful work during the part of the stride that was “wasted”, and therefore to go faster.
  • Opinions differ on its usefulness for non-elite skaters as it requires much practice before a skater is faster using Double-Push than without.
