  • Ski boots

    Ski boots.
    When you want to own your own ski equipment, ski boots are the first purchase you need to make. It is the most important element of your equipment being in direct connection between your feet and the skis. A suitable model will be a source of pleasure since you will be comfortable in your ski boots and you will ride your skis with precision. Speck-sports has selected the best brands of men's ski boots, women's ski boots and junior ski boots. Good news, we have cheap ski boots.

    Here are some tips to help you make your choice of alpine ski boots and select the model that will suit you best.
    1) DEFINE YOUR LEVEL AND TYPE OF PRACTICE
    To choose a ski boot that is perfectly adapted to your foot, it is important to know your level and the type of practice. Expert skiers, freestylers or pure alpine skiers will not choose the same boot, because their practice is completely different.
    Define your level well: beginner / intermediate / advanced / expert, as well as your type of practice: Track, Freeride, Freestyle, All mountain, Rando...
    2) DETERMINE THE FLEX OF YOUR SHOE
    The choice of the flex for your boot will be based on the evaluation of your practice, but above all on your level of skiing and your template.
    What is flex? What is flex?
    This is the stiffness indicator of your shoe. The more important this one is, the more rigid your shoe will be, and therefore reactive.
    On the other hand, a softer flex will be more tolerant, and more comfortable.
    The choice of flex is therefore crucial.
    For men, it is therefore generally considered that:
    A flex from 60 to 70 is designed for beginner to intermediate skiers
    A flex from 80 to 110 is designed for intermediate to experienced skiers
    A flex from 120 to 150 is designed for expert skiers:
    A flex that is too rigid for an average skier will be a limiting factor in his progress.
    For a very heavy and powerful skier, it will be necessary to increase the flex of the boot.

    For women, we consider that:
    A flex from 50 to 70 is designed for beginner to intermediate skiers
    A flex from 80 to 90 is designed for intermediate to experienced skiers
    A flex from 100 to 110 is intended for expert skiers
    Also, the type of practice is decisive: A Freestyle shoe is not required to have the same qualities of grip and flex as a track shoe, where the transmission of support is very important.
    4) CHOOSE THE WIDTH OF YOUR SHOE
    Each foot is unique, so it is essential to choose the right pair of shoes, and to take the necessary time when buying.
    The number given as the last of the shoe corresponds to its width at the forefoot level. From 92mm to 104mm, each foot can find the width of the shoe that suits it. The last of the shoe is given for a sample size of 26.5, but be aware that if your foot is larger, the width of the shoe you will try will be larger. The wrap of your foot must be homogeneous, and good support at the metatarsals and heel is necessary. On the other hand, toes must be able to move freely. The foot should not be compressed.
    4) CHOOSE THE SIZE OF YOUR SHOE
    Finally, it is necessary to choose the right size of your ski boot. This is measured in Mondo Point or MSS -Metric Sizing System. This is the length of the foot in centimetres. In flexion, the toes must touch the toe of the shoe.

  • Used skis

    Second-hand skis.

    You want to buy a pair of used skis but want to be sure of the condition of the equipment. You will find in this category a wide choice of used skis.

    -the skis are adjusted to your measurements if you give us the size of your ski boots.

  • Ski Touring

    ki touring

    You practice skiing but dream of wide open spaces, ski touring is made for you. Once confidential, ski touring has experienced rapid growth in recent years. You sweat on the way up by working on your cardio and once you get to the top, the pleasure of the panorama is equalled only by the pleasure you will have on the way down on virgin slopes, far from the crowd on the lifts.

    However, ski touring is not an activity that should be taken lightly because you are exposed to the dangers of the mountain and any neglect can quickly become catastrophic.

    It is advisable to choose your skis, bindings and hiking boots carefully, but also to remember to equip yourself with all the safety equipment for the mountain: DVA, shovel, probe, first aid kit.

    Speck-sports has long been the specialist in ski touring equipment. Our teams have participated in the famous skimo race, the Pierra Menta for more than 25 years and we have developed an expertise in everything related to ski touring, free touring and ski mountaineering equipment.
    Our technicians will be able to assemble your touring bindings, cut your skins and adapt your boots to your foot.


    Do not hesitate to contact the Speck-sports specialists who will be happy to advise you in your choice.

  • Cross country skiing

    Speck-sports, the specialist in cross-country and nordic skiing.
    You like Nordic skiing, you have decided to buy your pair of cross-country skis or a ski pack with bindings. Speck-sports has been the specialist in the sale of cross-country and nordic skis for 50 years. You will find on our e-shop everything you need for your cross-country skiing equipment. You can also complete your equipment with nordic ski boots, cross-country ski poles and all the accessories for winter sports.
    What type of cross-country skis to choose? 
    There are two disciplines in cross-country skiing:
    The classic or alternative step is the most traditional technique where you progress with the skis in parallel. To avoid going backwards when climbing, cross-country skis use different anti-recoil devices:
    -competition skis, a special retaining wax called Klister that is applied to a middle surface of the ski base. It is sometimes more difficult to implement because you have to consider the temperature of the snow when choosing wax and wax at the last minute.
    -recreational or sports skis use scales. Theoretically, we have a little less sliding, but it's more secure.
    In recent years, Nordic ski brands have developed an anti-recoil system based on synthetic skins that is becoming more and more efficient.
    A discipline apart from cross-country skiing is cross-country skiing. Specific equipment (wider skis, stronger bindings, stiffer boots) is then used to get away from the groomed slopes.
    Skating. It is the sportier version of cross-country skiing. We progress by taking skating steps, there is no anti-recoil system. It's more physical than classic cross-country skiing but we also go much faster. The skis are different. We take them shorter, the spatulas are rounded. Skating boots are stiffer with a much higher collar to hold the foot and transmit impulses.

    For cross-country ski bindings and Nordic ski boots, there are two standards: one developed by Salomon with a large central groove called SNS Profile and the other by Rossignol, Fischer and Rottefella with two grooves. The strong trend is a convergence towards the standard with two grooves. Salomon now markets products with this standard under the name Prolink.

    Cross-country ski poles are chosen according to the discipline you have chosen: Skating or alternative. In skating, we take the sticks much bigger. The more carbon there is in Nordic ski poles, the stiffer and lighter (but also more expensive) the poles will be.
     Speck-sports has selected the best brands of cross-country skiing. The skis are sold either alone or in packs with bindings. 
    There are of course women's nordic skis with a construction adapted to the female morphology, junior nordic skis for the little champions.

  • Snowboard

    Snowboarding
    You are looking for a snowboard, a pair of snow boots or a snowboard binding. We have what you need. We have selected a large quantity of snowboard products.
    Here are some tips for choosing your snowboard.

    1) Define your level and style of practice
    To choose a board that is perfectly adapted to your practice, it is essential to define what your riding style is, basically what you do mainly when you are on your board.  
    We can define 3 categories of practice:
    freestyle: you spend most of your time in a snowpark. You like to jumper, take the rails, do tricks on the track.  In short, your kiff is above all the tricks
    Freeride: you spend your time looking for the best line off the slopes. For you, a day of carving on the track is a failed day.  You prefer to ride in big curves in fresh snow, take maximum speed and do big slides on the snow drifts.  
    the all mountain: your playground, the entire mountain.  You like to cruise on the track, combine the little tables in the park, venture into the forest, draw in a corridor.  What you are looking for is absolute versatility.
    2) Choose the shape of your board (the shape)
    The shape of the board consists of the shape of the board, the spatulas and its flex. The shape determines the performance of the board according to the practice you make of it.
    Twintip or directional? That is the question.
    A Twin Tip board is symmetrical in terms of shape, flex, camber and spatula lift.  The fixing inserts are centered on the board.  This type of shape promotes freestyle riding, makes switch riding easier and provides ease of driving.  A Twin Tip board is the ideal weapon for the park and tricks on the track.
    A directional board is asymmetrical. The front (nose) and rear (tail) are different, so the board has a wrinkle direction. In general, the front spatula is longer and more progressive.  The inserts are shifted to the back of the board. This type of board promotes off-road riding and speed.
    3) Determine the size of your board
    For versatile use and a "medium" size, choose a board size of less than 20 cm from your size. That's the basis. Now, the strong ones will take the size up and the girls the size down.
    Pure Freestylers can go down to minus 25 cm and those who swear by the big runs in the powder can take a board just below their waist (from 10 cm to 0cm).

  • Snowboars boots

    Snowboard boots
    When you want to own your own snowboard equipment, boots are often the first purchase you make. The choice of his pair of snowboard boots is very important since it will condition both comfort and performance. Boots should be tolerant for beginners and rigid for good riders.
    When buying a pair of snowboard boots, there are several things to consider:
    Your level: beginner snowboarders will take more flexible and tolerant entry-level snowboard boots with a simplified tightening. Experienced riders will take stiffer boots, with tightening systems that better hold the foot and more advanced boots.
    Your riding program: freestyle, freeride, all mountain, alpine. We don't choose the same boots for the track or for freestyle. The flexs and stiffness will not be the same. Some freeride boots have reinforced soles to walk longer in the snow.
    The clamping system: Traditionally, the clamping system for boots was the lace. Either single or double for more accuracy. In recent years, the Boa system has begun to replace laces. Clamping and untightening are much faster and easier. The clamping tension will be constant throughout the day.

    Speck-sports has selected for you the best brands of snowboard boots.

  • Helmets

    Ski helmets and snowboard helmets
    You are looking for a ski or snowboard helmet. Speck-sport is here to equip you. And that's good, we have cheap ski helmets.
    Once only used in competition, the ski helmet has become an essential safety accessory in your mountain practice. It will protect you from impacts during a fall or collision and even from rocks that fall when you are off-piste. As we adopted it by bike, it now seems almost unthinkable to go skiing without a helmet. Especially for children. Moreover, wearing a helmet for children has become mandatory in ski schools. There are male and female ski helmets adapted to the female morphology.
    How to choose the size of your ski helmet?
    It's simple, just take a tape measure and measure the circumference of the head. Manufacturers indicate the size of helmets in head size. It should be noted that some helmets have a knob to refine the tightening of the helmet.
    Standards: All ski and snowboard helmets must comply with the CE standard (CE-EN 1077), this is the ski standard. Helmets specific to ski touring and ski mountaineering competitions also have the mountaineering standard (CE EN 12492). Manufacturers have developed high-performance shock absorption systems now. One example is the MIPS system, which diffuses and absorbs shock waves for even greater protection. The ski and snowboard helmet is considered as a PPE (personal protective equipment) and as such it is normally mandatory to change it every 5 years. (complete headset with rigid ears).
    The different ski and snowboard helmets.
    There are a multitude of models of ski helmets adapted to the needs of each individual. Some have flexible ears, for more comfort and better hearing. Ventilation of the helmet is also very important. Check whether it is adjustable or not. Some Bluetooth skis headsets allow you to connect your mobile phone and thus listen to music or make calls while skiing. In recent years, visor helmets have been coming in force. In addition to the look, they offer the advantage of having a solid and always well adjusted visor. High-end visor helmets have a photochromic visor that adapts to the intensity of light.

  • Safety

    Safety equipment for free riding  and ski touring.

    For many years, Speck-sports has offered a wide range of  mountain safety products.

    According to ANENA statistics, during the 2016-2017 season, 88 avalanches were reported to have killed 22 people.

    While 80% of alpine hikers are now equipped with Avalanche Transceivers, only 45% of off-piste skiers and snowboarders are equipped.

    With the cellular phone network covering most ski areas, it feels safer to call for help, but statistics show that the chances of survival decrease rapidly over time. Only the help organized directly by the people on the spot and equipped guarantees a very high percentage of survival.

    It all comes down to the first 15 minutes:

    Between 0 and 15 minutes of burial:

    The chances of survival are 91%.

    The victims are mostly fatally injured during the fall into the avalanche.

    15 to 45 minutes of burial:

    The chances of survival drop to 25%.

    This is the asphyxiation phase. Without an air bag, with a compressed chest, the victims died of asphyxia.

    Beyond 45 minutes of burial:

    The chances of survival decrease gradually with the presence or absence of air. Beyond 2H, the chances of survival are only 7%.


    The importance of equipment:

    For a quick rescue it is necessary:

    Locate the victim using the Avalanche Transceivers and a probe.

    Professional first aiders in addition to dogs have specific tools such as the RECCO system with which some equipment and clothing are equipped.

    Access the victim.

    With only skis and hands it sometimes takes more than an hour to dig 1 m into avalanche snow. That's why it's so important to have a shovel on you.

    The Avalanche Transceivers

    What is a Avalanche Transceivers

    The Avalanche Victim Detection Device is an electromagnetic transmitter and receiver operating on the standard frequency of 457kHz. A dva has two functions: transmission and reception.

    When off-roading, the Avalanche Transceivers must be in the transmitter position permanently on (after checking the correct operation of the device)

    In the event of an avalanche, the witnesses present switch their dva to reception mode to locate the victims.

    In choosing his Avalanche Transceivers will take into account:

    The signal range and bandwidth:

    The more important these are, the earlier the victim's location will be.

    Digital and analog modes.

    Until 1998, manufacturers used analogue technology. In this case, the signal from the transmitting Avalanche Transceivers is converted by the receiver into sound waves. When a Avalanche Transceivers in reception receives a Avalanche Transceivers in transmission, it emits a "beep", all the louder because the two devices are close to each other or because they are correctly oriented relative to each other. A potentiometer makes it possible to vary the sound intensity of the signal, by adjusting the sensitivity of the receiver. All Avalanche Transceivers manufactured before 1998 are analog.

    In 1998, a second generation of Avalanche Transceivers appeared, using digital technology, exclusively or in combination with analogue technology. This is called digital Avalanche Transceivers. The transmitter signal is analyzed by a microprocessor which converts it into two types of visual indications:

    an indication of progress (numerical value appearing on a screen);
    - a direction indication (diode or arrow that lights up when the receiving Avalanche Transceivers is correctly oriented with respect to the transmitting device).

    The number of antennas:

    Avalanche Transceivers are composed of 1 to 3 antennas. The recent models all have 3 antennas that simplify the search for victims by giving indications of distance and direction. They are also much more accurate in the final research.

    Other functions:

    Analysis and separation of signals in the event of burial, multiple victim marking, rescuer protection function with automatic activation of the transmit mode without movement for a certain time (over avalanche)

    Simple rules for using Avalanche Transceivers

    To be effective with a dva you must know how to use it in search mode. It is not necessary to wait until the accident to learn because with stress and confusion, research must be like a reflex. Practice searching with dva before the accident.

    Do not wear your dva just under your jacket: as soon as it gets warmer, when you take off your jacket, the dva appears in the open air: in case of an avalanche it may be torn off!

    Don't leave without a snow shovel or probe: you have just found a buried person in less than 5 minutes but it takes you 45 minutes to clear them by hand.... the time to die asphyxiated under the snow.

    Do not leave with very used batteries (or without batteries at the beginning of the season)
    Knowing how to give up a race, the dva is not a "loop

    The use of a DVA must be combined with a probe and a shovel.

    The average search time of a victim is estimated at:

    11 mm with dva, probe and shovel

    25 mm with a dva and a shovel

    1 hour with a dva alone.

    When you know that everything is at stake in the first 15 minutes, it is imperative to go to the mountains with these 3 safety elements.


    The probes

    They are made of aluminium for strength or carbon to save weight.

    Their length must be at least 2 m. The standard length is 2.4 m, with rescuers using probes from 2.80 to 3.2 m for a higher sounding capacity.


    The shovels

    The excavators (handle + bucket) can be composed of combinations of the following three components: Carbon, aluminium and polycarbonate. Carbon and polycarbonate will be lighter but aluminum will be more effective on hard snow.

    Telescopic handles help to make the excavator more compact for storage but also more efficient when deployed for excavating.

    Some models also have a ォ position サ pickaxe to increase efficiency in clearing.


    Airbags bags

    The airbag is an additional and important safety element. Contrary to popular belief, it does not totally eliminate the risk of mortality but halves it.

    Out of 100 avalanche victims, 22 perish. This number is reduced to 11 with a successful airbag activation.

    However, according to ANENA, it is very important to become familiar with the operation of the trigger. 20% of inflation failures and 60% due to the user's fault.

    On the other hand, the personal safety benefits of airbags are quickly cancelled if users use them to justify increased exposure in areas where larger avalanches are possible.

  • bags

    The ski bags

    Winter sports are something we all enjoy from the first few days of sleet. But when it comes to going to the mountains, that's another story. How to store all the family's equipment in a car trunk, in a suitcase on a plane, or in the hold of a shuttle?
    In fact, we've all had to walk to get to the slopes, with the skis and poles on one shoulder, the boots held with the other hand, with his children behind who grumble because it's heavy. Yes, we've all been through this cumbersome, wet stuff before, but we love it.

    As a result, we have the solution, and not the least: the bags!
    Covers are an essential accessory for transporting and protecting sports equipment: skis, snowboards, boots. They make it possible to take care of the equipment, but also of your car! Indeed, in general, the bottom of the bags is waterproof to prevent snow from flooding your vehicle. To sum up, the bags are very practical for different reasons. First of all, they protect our equipment. The bags limit scratches and deformations. Then, they make it easier to transport our equipment on the different domains, in good conditions. They are actually very efficient in climatic conditions such as snow, wind, rain, cold and humidity.

    Today there are different models, all more practical than the other, with very different prices, which we offer you within a selection chosen by mountain specialists.
    We therefore offer you a wide range of different bags, aesthetic, comfortable and practical. The Dakine and Téléferik brands are two particularly interesting brands in terms of value for money. Other brands such as Head with its Heatable shoe bag offer a higher quality product that will warm up your shoes before putting them on. What a luxury.

    So if you're tired of struggling, think of the covers that combine convenience, protection and comfort.

  • Sunglasses - Goggles

    Ski goggles.

    In the mountains, protecting your eyes is essential. In fine weather, strong sunlight can cause serious eye problems and damage to the eyes. On the contrary, when it snows or rains, it is necessary to protect your eyes from flakes and rain. To improve visibility in fog, the ski goggle will be your best ally.

    Speck-sports has selected for you the best brands of ski goggles: Oakley, Smith, Julbo, Cébé, Bollé, Poc, Scott, Uvex, Loubsol, Head, Rossignol, Cairn. With all this choice, you are sure to get a cheap ski goggle.

    How to choose your ski goggle or snow goggle?

    First check that your goggle complies with the European standard EN 174 for eye protection for sliding sports. The ski goggle must filter 100% of the UV rays.

    To fight against fogging, it is best to have a dual screen goggle. Very often the fog goggles have a pink screen. Brands such as Oakley with Prizm or Scott with Amplifier offer displays that greatly improve contrast when there is a white day. For the sun, use a yellow or brown screen.

    The screen categories of the ski goggles:

    There are 5 screen categories rated from 0 to 4:

    Category 0: Non-tinted glasses/screens (absorb less than 20% of visible light). Mainly used for night skiing

    Category 1: clear glasses/screens (absorb between 20 and 57% of visible light). Use in foggy or overcast conditions.

    Category 2: intermediate tint lenses/screen (absorb between 57 and 82% of visible light). Quite versatile in cloudy weather but unpleasant in the sun, especially above 2000 m altitude.

    Category 3: dark glasses/dark screens (absorb between 82 and 92% of visible light). This is the most common category on ski goggles and goggles, which provides sufficient protection from the sun for "normal" skiing.

    Category 4: (absorbs more than 92% of visible light). Generally concerns so-called "glacier" glasses, for skiing at high altitude. Quite rare on goggles. Be careful, it is forbidden to drive with it, because its glasses are too dark.

    Brands are now marketing photochromic goggles: the screen will brighten or darken depending on the brightness.

    Some goggles are delivered with several interchangeable screens to adapt the view to the day's conditions.

    For your comfort, remember to take a ski goggle adapted to the shape of your face. The foam density is also important enough for wearing the snow goggle all day long

  • Technical men's wear

    Technical  MEN's wear

    Despite the overall increase in temperatures in winter, it is essential to be well equipped to brave the peaks, take a family mountain walk, go tobogganing, skiing, hiking, or "snowshoeing". Having high-performance equipment adapted to your needs has become essential to resist the elements and practice your mountain activity with comfort and safety. Note that depending on the discipline chosen, the equipment will not necessarily be the same as any other discipline. Today, men's technical textiles have evolved considerably, both from a technical and aesthetic point of view, whether you are a competitor, a hobbyist, a beginner or a regular, a fashionista or more basic. Technical clothing becomes a real ally that promotes movement, wicks away perspiration and limits the presence of outside humidity, in style. We offer you a wide range of products that will keep you warm and dry during your trips (in the mountains), whatever the weather. The idea is to effectively protect your body from the cold, external and internal humidity.

    But then, how to dress during your winter expeditions?

    First of all, it is essential to wear a first coat.
    Underwear keeps warm and warms up the body's most sensitive parts. More and more manufacturers such as Icebreaker or Ortovox use merino wool as a first coat. Merino wool has the impressive ability to absorb large amounts of moisture without appearing wet. It transports moisture to the core of the fibre before gradually releasing it. At the same time, it regulates the temperature, prevents unpleasant odours (antibacterial fabric) and dries quickly, as much as synthetic. Merino wool is the most functional fibre in the world. It is the best material for professional technical underwear. To sum up, merino wool protects the body from perspiration and this is essential in the mountains, where you must avoid getting cold.
    In fact, first coats are useful in all seasons, especially in winter. Why? Winter sports cause a wide temperature range between perspiration during exercise and cooling during breaks.

    Then, depending on the weather, you can wear a second layer, which will bring more warmth to your body. Powerstretches can be an interesting choice to stay warm, while having a breathable and comfortable product to wear during exercise. The softshells, considered as jackets, are appreciated for spring alpine skiing, very breathable, but also for cross-country skiing, walking, or trekking. Namely that softshells are not waterproof, but windproof. The Trilogy V Icon WDS softshell can become a must as a mountaineering jacket (ascent or approach jacket). It is 100% windproof thanks to its Windstopper Light Active 3L membrane, but also water-repellent, lightweight and does not sacrifice protection or ease of movement. It facilitates the technical gesture and boosts breathability.
    Polar fleece clothing to effectively fight the cold can also be a tool adapted to mountain practice.

    Finally, a third layer is essential in case of wind, rain, humidity, or snow. An anorak can therefore be a solution to stay out of the weather, while remaining free in its movements. The Scott Jacket Vertic GTX 3L biking jacket can be a great choice for the most adventurous riders. The seams are completely waterproof, and its membrane is Gore Tex, perfect for extreme conditions.
    The famous Gore Tex is perfect for thermal insulation, and offers excellent water repellency and waterproofing, and wicks away perspiration, but you still have to choose the right Gore Tex jacket, because all have their own characteristics (gore tex pro/ gore tex active/ etc). Moreover, to preserve your Gore Tex jacket for a long time, be careful when washing.

    In addition, it will be important to choose comfortable pants that insulate you from moisture and allow you a lot of freedom of movement on difficult terrain or steep passages.

    For all these technical reasons, a wide range of products has been carefully selected by experts in extreme cold and snow sports. We offer you anoraks, softshells, first layers, pants, socks, gloves, and hats that will allow you to be comfortable and elegant in all situations, and whatever your practice: trekking in Nepal, skiing in the Alps, hiking in the Vosges, cross-country skiing in the Jura etc.

    The softshells, considered as jackets, are appreciated for spring alpine skiing, very breathable, but also for cross-country skiing, walking, or trekking. Namely that softshells are not waterproof, but windproof. The Ultimate V Tour So Hooded softshell, despite its extreme lightness, is a windproof jacket that keeps all its promises. Polar fleece clothing to effectively fight the cold can also be a tool adapted to mountain practice.

    Finally, a third layer is essential in case of wind, rain, humidity, or snow. An anorak can therefore be a solution to stay out of the weather, while remaining free in its movements.
    The famous Gore Tex is perfect for thermal insulation, and offers excellent water repellency and waterproofing, and wicks away perspiration, but you still have to choose the right Gore Tex jacket, because all have their own characteristics (Gore Tex pro for alpine practices / Gore Tex active very breathable/2.5 layers more focused on the city). For example, the Millet mountaineering jacket in the Trilogy range (LD Trilogy Ultimate GTX JKT) offers perfect and exceptional waterproofing (Gore Tex) and has ventilation openings under the arms to release excess heat.
    Moreover, to preserve your Gore Tex jacket for a long time, pay attention to the care conditions.


    In addition, it will be important to choose comfortable pants that insulate from moisture and allow you a lot of freedom of movement on difficult terrain or steep passages.

    For all these technical reasons, a wide range of products has been carefully selected by experts in extreme cold and snow sports. We offer you anoraks, softshells, first layers, pants, socks, gloves, and hats that will help you

    Maintenance products for skis and snowboards.

    Why maintain your skis and snowboards?

    When you buy a pair of skis, they are ready to ski. Gradually, the edges will become blunt, the glide will be less good, because of the lack of wax and the impacts on the sole. There is nothing more frustrating than having the feeling of not sticking to hard snow and ice and sticking to the snow when it is wet.


    To remedy this, you can leave your skis for repair to professionals or simply maintain your skis yourself. It's not complicated and with all the video tutorials available no worries you'll get there.
    The only condition to properly maintain your skis or snowboard and to have adapted and good quality equipment.

    Speck-sports is the specialist in tools for the maintenance of skis and snowboards. When you want to maintain your skis yourself, it is best to choose a maintenance case. We offer ski and snowboard maintenance kits for all levels and requirements.
    The basic maintenance kit allows you to repair holes in the ski bases, sharpen the edges to the desired angle, wax and scrape the base.
    Those who opt for a pro case will have even more precise tools and above all much more effective waxes.


    If you already have some of the equipment, we have a wide selection of waxes, files, brushes, etc. to complete your equipment.

  • Sledge

    The sledges

    As soon as the first snow falls, chances are your children will ask you to go for a ride on the local hill. But before going down the neighbour's meadow, or the toboggan run, you will have to make sure you have a toboggan adapted to your needs. Moreover, sledging is not only for children; yes, these small machines, which are increasingly technical and resistant, were once used by the Vikings in the fjords; as well as by our Vosges loggers who used to descend the mountain woods with the schlitte, in other words, a wooden sleigh. The obvious proof that we've been reading for ages.

    Today, sledges have lost their utility aspect, to the great delight of children, but also of parents who can enjoy the joys of skiing together. These are designed for one or two people with an increasingly original and comfortable design and colour with reinforced seats. If you still have doubts about safety, it is important to know that most of the new sled models have brakes that allow you to brake quickly but also to steer. The experience will not only be fun with 360-degree slides, but also reassuring.

    To tame the steepest slopes, the TSL and Frendo sleds are designed to provide optimal gliding performance. The steering wheel and brakes have become essential to be easy to handle and have fun in complete safety. In addition, their light weight means that they do not run out when going up the slope, and thus have more fun for longer.

    Whether you are reckless or more careful, whether you are looking for thrills or softer descents, the specialist brands Frendo and TSL have developed a wide range of sleds with traditional or more unusual models, to discover among our selection.

    Have a nice downhill.

    Remember not to over wax the sled.

  • Bags-luggage
  • Snowshoes

    Snowshoe technology has evolved considerably since its development in the 1970s. They have become lighter and allow a more natural and precise step, which makes it easier to progress on the technical paths. In fact, science has taken hold of snowshoes to spread the body's weight more evenly and efficiently over an uneven snowpack and prevent slips. Whether you are a beginner or an expert, you can find snowshoes adapted to your expectations and needs with the selection made by experts. The rackets all have different and important features such as comfort (TSL Outdoor 305 Celestial Tour), grip, adherence, foot support, and of course lightness like the MSR Lightning Ascent M25 rackets. Some are particularly effective when it comes to shock absorbers, others are more effective for quick fixing, such as the TSL Outdoor 325 Tour, others are designed for snowshoeing on difficult terrain, while others are designed to have ergonomic fixings that are adapted to all types of terrain. Once again, it will be a question of clarifying the reasons for your practice to choose the most appropriate pair of snowshoes and thus spend a beautiful moment in the heart of nature.

    So ready to "snowshoeing" this winter? If this is the case, why not discover the Markstein estate on snowshoes with your family, friends or even colleagues? Indeed, it is an activity that provides immense physical and mental well-being. Walking on snowshoes in the mountains, sunny or not, allows you to feel free, while being safe on marked trails. In Markstein, you can discover 3 circuits of 1.5km, 4km, or 8km to combine hiking and emotions in a dream setting. Regardless of your level of sportsmanship, whether you are contemplative or a great sportsman, if you know how to walk, you know how to "snowshoeing". Everyone can enjoy snowshoeing and discover unique panoramas. If you do not have snowshoes, you can rent or buy them at the Speck-Sports store in Bitschwiller les Thann.

    Have a nice hike.
