Rollerski Diagonal

A truly optimal combination, the RL2700E x 1000 is the perfect treadmill for training with roller skis, specifically in the classic skiing diagonal technique. The diagonal technique serves as the foundation for all cross-country skiing and is predominantly applied on uphill slopes ranging from gentle inclines to steep terrains. This treadmill offers exceptional opportunities to refine the diagonal technique with precision, allowing for practice at desired elevations, speeds, and distances without unnecessary downhill slopes. Classic skiing technique, practiced on roller skis, has evolved to emphasize double-poling extensively on flat terrains and to a certain extent on slight inclines (refer to double-poling above). The treadmill proves highly suitable for training across all "gears" of classic skiing and honing technique.

Ski Mountaineering Skimo

Suitability Treadmill and Skimo 85%
Skimo Ski Mountaineering

A highly effective combination of treadmill and activity, the L2700E x 1000 is well-suited for training and testing experienced athletes in ski mountaineering (Skimo). While the treadmill belt's length is adequate, some athletes may prefer additional lateral margins for pole tip placement during tests and intense exercises. Skimo training on this treadmill involves using authentic skimo skis with stirrup skins, real boots, and genuine ski poles equipped with pole tips model Karda. With the ability to incline the treadmill belt up to 14° (25%), it significantly contributes to Skimo training. Athletes can fully simulate the sub-moments of uphill skiing, offering opportunities for performance enhancement through the advantages of treadmill training: precise measurement of ability, measurable progress, VO2max and lactate threshold training, consistency between sessions, heart rate control, and customized "tracks" that replicate Skimo competition terrains.

Suitability Treadmill and Bicycling 85%

A good but not optimal combination, the RL2700E x 1000 treadmill has found success among cyclists. The treadmill offers a more realistic training environment, notably due to the bike's dynamic vertical angle to the ground, in contrast to stationary training bikes on the floor. Additionally, cyclists can use their own bikes, avoiding the risk of developing incorrect movement patterns associated with floor-placed training bikes. For enhanced cycling training, the RL2700E x 1000 can be equipped with the Rodby Max Top speed upgrade, allowing the treadmill to reach speeds of up to 40 km/h. While the belt size of 2700 x 1000 mm is sufficient for cycling workouts, it leaves limited margins forwards, backwards, and to the sides. Expect a certain learning period to adapt to this setup.


Wheelchair and Frame runner racing

Suitability Treadmill with Wheelchair and Framerunner 80%

A good but not optimal combination, the RL2700E x 1000 treadmill has proven successful for training with a wheelchair and framerunner. However, the width of the treadmill requires practice for effective use. Rodby offers special options that can be equipped on the treadmill to facilitate easier use for wheelchair and framerunner practitioners.

Rodby Control System

All Rodby treadmills, ranging from RL1602E to RL2700E, are equipped with Control System 2.0. This comprehensive system includes a computer, keyboard, mouse, touchscreen, Rodby pedestal, and an emergency stop button located by the control panel.

The Control System 2.0 interface provides flexibility, allowing operation through either the touchscreen or the keyboard and mouse, enabling users to choose the option that best suits their preferences at any given moment. When the control system is used adjacent to the treadmill, touch control is the preferred method. Additionally, there is an optional Bluetooth® Remote Control that facilitates easy adjustment of incline and speed without diverting focus from the exercise. External control of the treadmill via USB is also possible through the Trackmaster protocol.

The interface supports three languages: English, Swedish, and Chinese, providing accessibility for users with different language preferences. This multi-functional control system enhances the user experience and customization options.

Pulse Control is standard

Rodby treadmills come equipped with Control System 2.0, featuring Pulse Control of belt speed as a standard feature. Pulse control requires a connected pulse band or pulse clock with Bluetooth® capability. This functionality enables users to set a target pulse (Target Pulse), and the control system automatically adjusts the speed of the belt to attain the user's desired pulse rate. This feature proves highly beneficial when aiming to stay within a specific pulse range for various training objectives, such as endurance training, fat burning, aerobic exercise, anaerobic exercise, or interval training. It provides users with a precise and controlled means of maintaining their desired cardiovascular intensity throughout their workout.

Track Simulation GPX is standard

Rodby treadmills equipped with Control System 2.0 offer an import function for GPX files created by a GPS device. This feature enables users to exercise on a simulated track, providing an excellent means to prepare for a race and train under conditions nearly identical to the real track. Utilize the Track Simulation GPX for your preferred home track in the forest or a competition track such as a marathon or the Vasaloppet. This functionality enhances the training experience, allowing for targeted and race-specific preparations.

Auto Positioning as Option

Rodby treadmills with Control System 2.0 can be enhanced with the Auto Positioning option. Auto Positioning enables the treadmill control system to utilize a stereoscopic motion sensor to read the position of the person training on the belt. It automatically adjusts the belt speed: increasing when the user moves closer to the front of the belt and decreasing when the person moves further back on the belt. This unique feature allows the practitioner to control the treadmill speed based on their own pace during the exercise. The stereoscopic motion sensor is sophisticated enough to discern the center point of the trainee while disregarding any equipment, such as swinging arms, poles, bicycles, wheelchairs, framerunners, and even outsiders entering the motion sensor's field of view. This ensures a personalized and responsive training experience, adapting to the user's position on the treadmill.

Roller skiing on Rodby treadmills

Rodby recommends equipping the treadmill belt with vulcanized rubber strips, primarily to enhance the longevity of Karda pole tips. While the belt itself is highly wear-resistant, the addition of these self-healing rubber strips further extends its lifespan. It’s important to note that, according to some riders, the rubber strips may slightly impact the grip capabilities of the “Karda” tips. For the most powerful double-poling riders, the 8 mm strips and tips mentioned below are the preferable choice. The vulcanized red rubber strips are offered in two thicknesses: 3 mm and 8 mm.

Without strips With strips

Drag the handle horizontally to see with or without vulcanized wear strips for pole tips.

Rubber strips 3 mm

  • With the 3 mm thick rubber strips, we highly recommend exclusively using tips model “Karda” or walking ski pole rubber tips with studs that have a maximum protrusion of 2 mm.
  • For applications involving a combination of roller skiing with running or other types of exercise, the treadmill is better suited with the 3 mm thick rubber strips.

Rubber strips 8 mm

  • With the 8 mm thick rubber strips, you can utilize the same tips as with the 3 mm strips.
  • The durability of the belt is extended with the 8 mm strips.
  • The belt equipped with 8 mm thick rubber strips allows for the use of tips like Swix Force or Swix Triac tips with the sharp tip slightly grounded off, leaving a protrusion of maximum 3 mm. This combination of 8 mm strips and the aforementioned tips provides excellent pole tip grip with minimal tip and belt wear.
