Ski Jumping Slings are unique and innovative training equipment devices for ski jumpers. Ski jumping is a popular sport that is also featured in the Winter Olympics and involves sliding down a ramp with skis and jumping for distance while going downgrade. Before this invention, there was not many practical ways to train without going to an official jumping site.
The sling throws the ski jumper in such a way to simulate going down the ramp in an actual jump. Using this in combination with real jumps is a great way for a ski jumper to better prepare for events. The sling has been upgraded since it’s origin and is now electronic. The ski jumping sling not only serves the needs of ski jumpers but also snowboarders with the newest models. This can be used to imitate many aerial scenarios for snowboarders of many skill levels and training needs to upgrade their performance.
The ski jumping sling was invented by Spede Pasanen and is still being produced by the company Spede-Idea. This training equipment should be available at online and on ground ski jumping and snowboarding equipment stores. The ski jumping sling is a great investment for someone who competes competitively in ski jumping and snowboarding or anyone who takes the recreations seriously.
