The "Power Skater" retails for $780 U.S. with additional accessories such as resistance cables also available.

To me this looks not quite right for technique, though I am sure it would help develop some of the key muscles. This one IMO would develop the "takeoff" muscles, early acceleration from a complete stop, but less so for top speed. Compare with the heiden slide board, where the lateral push builds straight line speed.
