In conjunction with Jørgen Weidemann Eriksen we have devloped a new type of cross country ski handle. DF1's purpose is simple, utilize as much of the skiers applied force possible into propulsion. Traditional solutions lose energy through bending of poles, with DF1 this bending is reduced and force transfer is 3-4% higher then the current leaders.
The process of developing DF1 has been very physical and scientific. In conjunction with athletes we formed a tight and efficient development cycle of by the means of physical testing, evaluating, 3D refinement and production of new prototypes. This cycle we got down to as little as 3 days from test to test.
