zLeisure Uniski/Dualski

 

The “LEISUREDualski and Uniski are intended for the physically impaired at the lower limbs. With training, the physically challenged can experience the pleasure of skiing successfully and independently.
Ideal for ski schools or disabled wintersports organizations, Leisure Uniski and Dualski are easy to ski and allow a quick learning and progression.

Which is the better choice, The Uniski or the Dualski ?

The Uniski is currently the most used sit ski worldwide. Designed as a simpler version of the Dualski, the Uniski is more economical. The UNISKI TESSIER is made of high quality parts which make it a unique product.

Created in 1996 by Pierre TESSIER, the DUALSKI is a high performance sit ski that does as well on hard snow as on “powder” snow.Its totally articulated frame gives an incomparable comfort and sliding security. The Dualski can be placed on any type of ski and standard binding making it highly adaptable to any situation. Different configurations of the articulated frame allow to adapt the angle of inclination of the skis to the user’s performance and ability.

Those two products have been developed and improved to offer all what we can expect from a sit ski :

  • Very good level of comfort and contact with snow thanks to specially designed shock absorbers. Two types of shock absorbers are available : Fournales and Öhlins.
  • Two frame heights are available, one for beginners and another for performance.

Characteristics:

 

  • Seven seat sizes including one children size available with many options. Can be used on all Tessier sitski frames (except Tandem’Flex)
  • 2 shock absorber availables: Fournales and Öhlins.
  • Great ease in the use of chairlifts thanks to a patented lever system which helps the skier to get up.

 

  • The standard bindings offer easy adaptability with all kind of skis thanks to aluminium boots that have the shape of a ski shoe (length: 325 mm).
  • Legs cover made out of polyamide nylon with storage pocket is available in option.
  • When buying a Uniski or a Dualski, we can sell you ski and ski bindings at competitive price (single ski for Uniski or pair of skis for Dualski).

Assistance and piloting bar for uniski and dualski

Two bars adaptable on Uniski and Dualski are available.

They are fixed between the seat and the frame in order to be easily removable.

The size of the bar has been designed in such a way so that:

  • the use of ski lifts is not disturbed.
  • the equilibrium of the Dualski or Uniski on a chairlift is not affected and the safety rail passage is not obstructed.

These bars can’t be used with the Scarver.

Assistance bar

barreassistanceThe assistance bar is intended to help the ski instructors during the learning period of the seated skier.

It allows a temporary help to the beginner by giving to the ski instructor a good handling of the apparatus in case of difficult circumstances.

From Denis Lefebvre, Canadian skier with the

Leisure Dualski – May 2013

“To summary, I well appreciated the design quality of the Dualski, strong and reliable. The suspension is very efficient, comfortable and it stay stable even on the rugged slopes. The edging system of the Dualski is really impressive, the mechanism works immediately. But the more important point is the style, we are not unremarked on the mountain and for me that promote integration. I think people come over me more easily for discussing.”


Le Dualski et l’Uniski “LOISIR” sont destinés aux personnes handicapées des membres inférieurs. Ils leur permettent, après une initiation, d’accéder aux plaisirs de la glisse et de skier de façon autonome et performante.
