Used Machine

THINKING ABOUT BUYING A USED SKIER'S EDGE?

If you are considering the purchase of a previously owned Skier’s Edge machine or parts from Ebay, Craigslist or other auction sites, etc., we want to make sure you are well informed about the machine or parts as they may be out-of-date. We want to be able to provide you with this important information. Every Skier’s Edge machine has a unique serial number to identify it and its parts. Before you purchase a used machine: MAKE SURE THE MACHINE HAS A SERIAL NUMBER. We do not support Skier’s Edge machines without serial numbers. Before you purchase a used machine, we recommend that you call us with the used machine’s serial number in order to provide you with the machine’s history including the model, year, and other pertinent information. With a serial number, we can tell you if the machine is upgradable to accommodate out current state-of-the-art platforms and accessories, or if the machine is out of date and unable to accommodate our current accessories.

Tips to Consider when Purchasing a Used Skier’s Edge Machine:

Price: Most of the machines sold online are sold for hundreds of dollars more than the original price! We’ve seen 10-20 year-old machines sell for as much as a current brand new machine purchased directly from the Skier’s Edge Company – without a trial period or a warranty! Buying directly from the Skier’s Edge Company provides you with a 30-day home trial and a warranty on all our products.

Older machines vs new machines: Many used machine buyers don’t realize the used machine they are buying may be of the old vintage that teaches the old ski technique, and not the current techniques! All Skier’s Edge models designated as “Skier’s Edge” – “Original”, “SE II”, and some “SE III’s” were designated around the old style, straight ski. Modern ski techniques require a wider stance and edging with both skis. All current Skier’s Edge machines “S4″s, “QS5″s, “T5″s, and “LT Carvers” are designed to simulate skiing techniques on today’s modern skis.

BEWARE

Older machines labeled incorrectly: Every day, there are machines on ebay that are over 20 years old, but labeled as a current version.

Machines that can’t be upgraded: Many used machine buyers don’t realize the used machine they are buying cannot be upgraded, or is no longer supported. Many older machines cannot be upgraded to incorporate our current platforms and popular accessories. If you’re not sure, call us and we will gladly help you identify these potential problems.

Beware of Skier’s Edge imposters! The Skier’s Edge products are patented all over the world. Many have tried to copy our products, so don’t be fooled by imitations! We do not support these under any circumstances. Do not buy a used machine is it does not have a serial number.

Replace the power bands: Lastly, if you do purchase a used Skier’s Edge machine. WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND REPLACING THE POWER BANDS. The power bands wear down over time, just like automobile tires. The Power Bands are crucial to your safety on the machine. We recommend replacing Power Bands every two years. Replacement bands are available only through the Skier’s Edge Company and carry a two-year warranty. Using Power Bands older than two years will be at your own risk. Skier’s Edge will not sell any replacement parts or upgrades for a used machine unless Power Bands are purchased or are less than 2 years old. As a reminder, we WILL NOT sell replacement power bands or any parts for any machine that does not have its original serial number.

  • Without a doubt, the Skier's Edge is a necessary addition to everyone's conditioning and rehabilitating programs. It's safe, easy to understand and players enjoy the positive results. All baseball players can benefit from the Skier's Edge. I use it for 30 second bouts for my infielders. This is a great machine to use as an adjunct, in the off-season, to maintain one's quad strength, balance, and endurance.

  • I set up an off-season training program for Andy Roddick. After evaluating Andy’s lower extremity and core strength I developed a program for him, which included intense training on the Skier’s Edge. It enhanced Andy’s lateral quickness and power, as demonstrated by his success.

  • Football is a very dynamic sport that involves quick movements and sudden changes in direction, making the Skier's Edge World Cup Plyometric machine the perfect training tool for working with some of the world's best athletes. The New York Giants have been using the Skier's Edge for the last ten years to help rehabilitate our players following injury and improve athletic performance. The Skier's Edge engages the upper and lower extremity and core, like football, helping our players perform at a championship level.

  • The Swiss Team has used the Skier's Edge for many years now with great success! It is part of our inventory and goes with us everywhere from training camps to the World Cup circuit. Many skiers remain advanced only on groomed slopes. What is required to be an expert on the whole mountain is power and confidence. If you use the Skier's Edge every day, you will gain the power and confidence to leave the groomed trails and ski the whole mountain. The Skier's Edge is as essential to skiing as skis, boots and poles.

  • The German National Ski Team uses the Skier's Edge in all year-round preparation. We get tremendous help in building up certain abilities for our top athletes. The movements on the Skier's Edge are the same as real skiing (open leg position, independent work of both legs, canting) and therefore very important for our training and building up leg power. In addition, we work on balance and coordinative exercise. For these aims we can imagine no better training machine.

  • ...My business is rehabilitating and training elite athletes. The Skier's Edge is not only an invaluable tool in helping my athletes and clients reset their proprioceptive clocks and improve balance reactions, but is as well an excellent tool to optimize sport specific energy system training.

  • The US Ski Team has been using the Skier's Edge World Cup Plyometric Power year round as part of our race program. We have learned that the athletes are able to develop the anaerobic system in a very progressive way while using these sport specific components. The high intensity that the athletes are able to produce on the Skier's Edge World Cup Plyometric Power develops the anaerobic system very effectively. Overall, we see the Skier's Edge as a great tool for preparing our athletes for the intense load involved in ski racing.

  • I bought it in the off season to stay in shape. The Skier's Edge has brought me to a whole new level of skiing. It not only helped me stay in shape, I started off my second season skiing better than I did at the end of last ski season. The Skier's Edge has improved my balance, timing, strength, endurance and confidence on the slopes. I would definitely recommend this to anyone at any level of skiing to improve their skiing abilities.
