Riders N Sliders are an independent technically focused winter sports outlet based in Burnley, Lancashire. Know locally as Gaz's Ski and Board, we were formed over twenty years ago and in those twenty or so years we have developed a vast knowledge to all things winter sports, the staff within the Riders N Sliders / Gazs have many years experience in winter sports.
We have a onsite service centre for servicing skis and snowboards.
We also are a Ski-Mojo centre, both retailing, upgrading and last but not least giving you a precision fit.
Our showroom displays the range of products you can see on our website, and we carry a range of stock in depth during all seasons to satisfy our customers needs.
A major part of our bushiness is our service centre, we offer ski and board servicing/repair.
Little white lies come from desires to prevent hurt feelings, save face, or to take a brief nap in the snow.
We use the newly developed Raze-Cat edge precision grinder and polisher in our skilled hands, Winter Serv prepares skis and snowboards for precision carving on the globe’s wintery slopes. As sultans of snow we favour old school methods and use our bare hands over machines unlike most service centres, we know that this can improve the quality of the finish and can enhance equipment’s life span.
Snow riders of all sorts can improve the performance of their skis or snowboards with one of our premium service that begins with a full edge and base clean. The full treatment includes repairing minor damages with a P-Tex gun, sanding using fine belts on our Reichmann ski and board sanding machine, and application of hot wax by hand. Finally, a visual inspection of bindings and the tightening of loose binding bolts will be carried out, leaving sliders ready to suit up and tear down the black runs.
If your compare our services to the chain stores and other independent stores you will notice that we do not just grind bases and edges for the heck of it which can result in the thinning of bases and cutting short the life span of your beloved skis/board.
The ski~mojo is an innovative knee support, designed to help all skiers, especially those who have weak or damaged knees, suffer from thigh-burn, have lower-back problems or are just unable to get the most out of their time on the slopes. As it significantly reduces the load and strain on your knees and legs, the ski~mojo considerably reduces the risk of injury or further injury.
The ski~mojo works by "off-loading" some of your body weight directly through the shell of your ski boots, reducing the strain on your knees and legs by around 33% while also acting as shock absorbers, reducing jolts and bumps to your whole body.
We are a official stockist of the Ski Mojo and offer a fitting service and upgrade service (booking required)
We stock everything from Helmets to Goggles, Transceivers to Head Cams, GPS to Radios and of course we sell Skis, Boards, Bindings and Boot.
If you cant see it contact us and we should be able to source it for you.
