To go as fast as possible through a slalom course ( stepness 8%-15%) that´s what Inline Alpin is about.The course goes around slalom-poles, which get kick out of the way by skipoles. Certainly the competitions only take place on roads, which are closed down for this special event.
Similar to skiing, there are different types of competitions, salom, giant slalom and parallel slalom. The equipement includes helmet, knee-,shinbone-, back-, chest- and elbow protection so as padded pants. The skate has either a four- or five-wheel-frame and the wheelsize varies from 80 to 100mm.
The races take place all over Europe. Leading nations are Germany, Austria, Italy, Switzerland and Czech Republik.
