Dynafit has expertly combined carbon and Titanal® into a pole designed for the PDG. Of course, what is good enough for the epic Patrouille De Glacier ski mountaineering race is also good enough for the local skimo circuit or ski mountaineering in general. The PDG Expert pole is stiff and light in the carbon upper two-thirds, and more robust to impact damage in the alloyed lower third. The inexpensive pole also features Dynafit’s patented butterfly basket, which can spread its wings to adapt to the contour of the terrain. That reduces slip outs, which, combined with the race weight, makes for one of the most efficient poles on the market.
