What you should pay attention to when buying used skis

Vær opmærksom på dette når du køber brugte ski

There is a lot of money to be made by shopping for used products, and especially when it comes to used ski equipment. New ski equipment that has only been used for a week has already lost half its value, so it goes really fast! However, there are also some disadvantages to shopping for used skis, and that is that you cannot see inside the skis and thus know how long the skis have again.

Here we have had Thomas Uhrskov visit the shop and talk a little more about how we make sure that the equipment is in order. Watch the video below and learn more about the subject

How we ensure the quality of the skis

When you want to ensure that used skis work optimally, there are two aspects to look at. There is the exterior that can be seen with the naked eye. Here we talk about scratches, the amount of edge and whether the bindings work optimally so that you smoke out of the bindings if you crash. In addition, there is also the interior, which you cannot see with the naked eye. Here it's about the core of the ski still being resilient and giving you this 'bounce back' in the turns.

Quality on the outside

We quality check all our used equipment to ensure that what we sell lives up to what a fully functional ski is. This means that the equipment we sell has plenty of edges, the bindings work as they should and there is no damage to the cores. To ensure the bindings spring up correctly should you crash, we have a purpose-built machine designed just for this purpose. This ensures that the bindings are correctly set and spring out as they should. If you should now choose to buy used skis privately, you will be able to come by the shop with them, and we can thereby ensure that they are set correctly. We have made a guide for you who want to buy used skis privately. Click here to see good advice for buying skis from private individuals!

To make it easier for you as a customer to understand the condition of our equipment, we have given all our products a condition description. This description expresses the ski's external quality, and is divided according to Gold, Silver and Bronze condition. You can see our entire stand description here.

Quality of the interior

When it comes to assessing the quality of the interior, it is a bit more complicated. Here you won't just be able to put the ski in a machine to be able to test this. Here it's all about testing the ski on the piste and seeing how it reacts. If the ski has become, 'slack', you will be able to feel it immediately. To safeguard against this, we sort out all the skis that we suspect may have become loose, so the chance of you leaving with such a pair is well below 1%. Furthermore, we always have a 2-year warranty on all products, which also covers if the ski were to go limp. If this happens, you will always be able to come back and get your full amount back on the skis.
