The Taurus Scandic-X Ski Trainer gives you the perfect machine for the focusing on your upper body strength.

Cross-country skiers are some of the fittest athletes on the planet, due to the demands placed on their bodies when they compete, with the Scandic-X these movements can be almost perfectly simulated.

When you first look at the machine, you would assume that only your arms would be working, however pretty much your full-body will workout. Power comes from your back and chest, more than through your arms. With a squat stance, your glutes and leg muscles will kick-in as well as your lower back and ab muscles.

You can also kneel, sit or even lay down for training should you wish to. Looking towards / away from or even in a sideways position to the Scandic-X can affect your training results, but the best way is to try it out and find out what exercise / position you have the most fun with so that you get the best results that work for you!

The machine has been designed and recommended for home-use but can also be used in commercial premises and gyms. Built with a hybrid resistance system, the magnet system lets you set the base resistance (10 different levels) and additional resistance is then generated during training from the air system.

In essence, that means the harder you pull, the higher the intensity. If you pull quickly, the air will be quickly displaced. This works well in practice, up to a certain speed, but thereafter the air is displaced “in the way” of the air that needs to be displaced, therefore increased the difficulty.

With the trainer, the training method is relatively simple to get your head around, just pull on the grips. However, there is a variety of ways you can do this to mix up your workouts. For example, you can pull whilst alternating both the left and right handles, or pulling both at the same time. If you alternate arms, your stablising muscles in your core are sprung into action. Depending on how your wish to focus your sessions, you could pull quicker at the same time for more resistance, requiring more power.

The Scandic-X is fitted with a blue back-lit console, that is mounted on the frame of the trainer. As you train your workout stats are displayed clearly on the screen. There are also a number of different settings and programs pre-set on the console. You are able to choose a heart rate prorgam or interval training program to push yourself, setting limits if you wish to.

The console displays: time, time/500m, distance, calories, strokes per minute, total strokes, pulse and watts. Pre-loaded with 3 interval programs (Tabata), 3 target programs, 4 hear rate programs and 1 watt program, there is variety for users of all levels of experience and age. A quick / start mode and manual mode for convenience, keep the console simple and straightforward to operate.

The Scandic-X can be easily mounted to a wall to save space in your home or indeed commercial gym. We would always recommend having a professional tradesman do this if you are unsure of doing this yourself.

Alternatively, the machine does have a compatible stand, sold separately, which allows the trainer to stand freely in any room or floor space. The Scandic-X is also fitted with transport wheels for easy portability should you wish to move it around.

Please note: This model pictured has the mounted base unit, however this is not included and can be purchased separately below.

Amazing quality product and service, definitely recommend! Could not be happier !

Ski Erg Alternative
I have used the Ski Ergs in the gym and thought I would try out this Taurus one instead. This is just as good quality, if not better, and I love using the interval programmes that are built into the console.

Superb machine
High quality and smooth operation. Even at high resistance, it's very stable and nothing wobbles. I think it's great that you can set the resistance electronically on the console and it also has preset programs. Assembly is really easy and quick.

Very impressive
I am used to using the a ski erg in the gym as i find it a very affective workout for shredding fat, This did not disappoint, the build and quality is amazing i would definitely recommend this product

Very Happy
Can't fault at all, i bought the floor stand to use rather than wall mount and must say i was surprised how sturdy the machine actually is.

Great Purchase
I'm so glad I went for this product in the end, great for interval training, easy to assemble and the choices of hand grips were a nice touch.
