Why shock absorbtion?

Because hitting the asphalt with undampened poles – is a shock!

Everyone with roller skiing experience knows that that shock can be uncomfortable and even harmful to wrists, elbows and shoulders. That's why we at StaffanSTAVEN are placing a spiral spring built into the handle. Years of testing and construction was needed to make it able to withstand the forces implied.

Almost unexpectedly StaffanSTAVEN has turned out to be an advantage in roller-ski races with several gold medals in the Swedish championships.

With StaffanSTAVEN your rollerskiing is finally gentle and ”snowlike"!

We receive many letters with appreciating comments - so many that we now publish them under the headline "Letters". Enjoy the reading.

Modell 2018


StaffanSTAVEN is now so durable, that elite skiers can use them for long hard training sessions.

In order to make the damper even lighter and slimmer we have started to use Carbon-fiber/Kevlar tubes. That cuts about 3 g from each damper and outer diameter from 19 mm to 18.5 mm. Not much but it looks good.

So if you are looking for a more comfortable tour on your roller-skis or really need help for your sore elbows StaffanSTAVEN just might be the answer to your prayers and the solution to your problem.

Staffan's rollerski pole damper i.e. StaffanSTAVEN is a spiral spring built into a pole handle. It provides a very good dampening of the shocks when you thrust the poletips in the tarmac.

The damper is constructed mostly of carbon fiber tubes and is so light that it does not hamper the poles dynamics, no heavy rubberdamper in the ferrul!

StaffanSTAVEN means a great improvement in comfort when you rollerski, but it also means much lower impact forces on wrist, elbow and shoulders.  So for the skier with overuse injuries to wrist, elbow and shoulder, StaffanSTAVEN is a great relief.

This is not just us saying so!  Our customers regularly compliment our product with words like "Magic!", "indispensibel", "ingeniuous" and so on. 

2010 - 2012 we made StaffanSTAVEN in aluminium, expensiv, difficult and with limited durability. It didn't matter to the skiers it seems, sales took off and many greatful skiers poored in letters and mails in gratitude. Late in 2012 we learned to make the damper with carbonfiber tubes - lighter, better.
