I like the Pro-Ski C2 Classic Rollerski: pretty smooth over the bumps, good rain fenders, fairly stable, and excellent wheel durability. They could be a little lighter, but they'll do.

This is my impromptu photo-shoot (gallery and slide-show) for the World Juniors/U23 team contest. The point is to wear your team spandex and take a picture, the more inventive, public, and awkward, the better.
