Light as Heli-o-um! Yet somehow stronger than your average carbon pole. The Black Diamond Helio Poles are inflation-molded into single, streamlined poling machines. The “grip” is simply part of the molded design, obviating the need for weighty or complex hand holders. Ditto for the touring rest that allows you to choke up on the pole when side-hilling or booting. The wrist straps a..
Piuma means featherweight in Italian. Vertical means vertical in English. Simple word math leads to a featherweight pole meant for skiing some vertical.

Also known as the Gara Aero World Cup poles, these Ski Trab sticks are designed for race abuse. Made with Ergal aluminum, the poles have a bending resistance of 60kg / mmq, meaning they are more resilient than a typical carbon fiber pole.

The three-quarter baskets provide support in the soft snow ye..

The Fischer Vario Ti is a two-piece, telescoping pole topped with extended EVA foam for gripping in various hand positions. ..
We are forever indebted to Andrew McLean, designer of the Whippet. With dozens (hundreds?) of known uses, the iconic pole is a staple of ski mountaineering. Once you get over the mental hurdle of skiing with a sword in your hand, you begin to discover the wisdom. Post-discovery, you begin to carry two.
Designed as a self-arrest device, the Whippet is moderately capable of stoppi..
A better name for this product would be 3-Piece Whippet. Sure the lower two sections are made of carbon fiber, but that just serves to save some grams, allowing for an extra segment without much change in overall weight. The pole still has as many uses as the iconic Whippet, it just collapses down smaller so you can stow it more easily on/in your pack.
