Love these poles. Just bought my 4th pair for myself and have bought them as gifts for others who love them as well. After breaking a tip, I replaced both tips on one set of poles with Black Diamond Flex Tech Tips and Powder Baskets. Just heat up, give a good yank, and epoxy the new ones on. I have also used the Black Diamond Variwidth Straps in lieu of the standard straps on extra long poles in lieu of race poles. The handle caps break from banging the poles on skis and boots to clear snow. Not a big deal if you aren't using straps. If you are, don't bang them against your skis. They caps are easily replaced. Just remeber to order 2. They do not come as a pair.

Question from Will
 
This is the 3rd or 4th? time I've busted the tip and/or end cap of these things :( getting pretty frustrated by the (lack of) durability. Anyways, this time I noticed part of the cap is stuck inside the upper part of the pole while I smacked the cap clean off. Having a really hard time getting it out so I can insert a new cap. Any tips? Attached a photo to show the problem...

Hi Will, you could try drilling a hole and threading a screw into the plastic and pulling on that. Alain has changed the plastic to help with these issues so hopefully we can get you some stronger pieces.

How can i remove the cap from my pole? Mine broke, I have replacements (thank you!) but I can't seam to get the cap off. Thanks for any help.

Answer from Gabriel I
 
They are... snug! We suggest a sharp tug, perhaps by clamping the cap in a vise or door frame and giving the handle a good yank.

these strap are a horrible waste of money.
$20 for 2 $5 straps and they just come undone. no matter how creative i got looping the strap ends they came undone.
ended up not using them which is fine with those pole. but i feel pretty dooped paying $20 for something i already had lying around in my camp gear. it’s basically the same strap for camping stuff that downs work unless it’s under tension which a ski pole strap isn’t . maybe i can tape them together but i only use them in icy chutes anyway

Question from Anthony O
 
Busted off "just the tip" of my batons. Made due with a brush basket. The whole carbide tip interface is gone, just a small hole. Came off in funky crusty postholy snow. Any parts for fixing this?

Answer from Ian C
 
Hey Anthony, send a note over to warranty@skimo.co and we should have a replacement we can send to you!

Question from Thomas Winkler
 
Waiting on French Flag colors in 125. Howling is the wait?
9/30/2020
Answer from Julieana
 
Hey Thomas, with the Les Batons we are rather at the whim of their maker, Alain Desez. He did not send us any French Flag colors in his last shipment and we will likely not be getting another shipment from him until much later in the winter, at which time he may or may not include French Flag colors.
