Carbon fiber and Titanal® assemble in joyous union to offer a lightweight and durable pole built for speed and reliability. The Dynafit Speed pole is designed around high-end training and racing but burly enough for the local skimo adventures. The Speed is a fixed-length poker made of two sections. The upper is light & stiff carbon fiber and the lower is a robust metal designed to combat rock damage. This relatively inexpensive pole also features Dynafit’s patented Butterfly Basket 2.0, which has a removable extender that can increase surface area for extra flotation. Remove it for more speed on hard snow. A pointy XC Carbide tip reduces slip-outs which, combined with the race weight, makes for one of the most efficient poles on the market. Speed at an amazing price.

  • Rock protection zone on the lower shaft takes more abuse than pure carbon.
  • Innovative basket rivals the male blue morpho butterfly in aesthetics and adaptability.
  • Low overall weight reduces arm fatigue while being stiff enough to transfer power.
  • Foam grip, removable wrist loop, and XC Carbide tip will stand the test of time.
  • Sold in pairs.

Questions & Reviews

Question from Bradley S
Do you sell the butterfly 2.0 baskets? I see them on the dynafit website. I'm required to carry a spare basket for a race. Do you know how to remove the original basket assembly so a new one could be installed? They don't seem to twist or pull off, and I'm afraid I'll break them if I twist or pull too hard.
Answer from Emmett I

We have them here. The ferrule and inner basket are one piece, some heat typically helps for removing them but replacement in the field might be difficult.

Question from David Riggs
Hey, just got a new pair of these poles and need to cut them down like I did with previous ones. But I can't remove the handle like I have previously with heat - using boiling water or - carefully - a heat gun. Handle/shaft interface seems the same, so surprised I'm having a problem. Any advice? Thanks!
Answer from Tristan M
Hi David,

Unfortunately, these poles are not intended to be trimmed down. We do not have any experience trying to get a handle off a Dynafit Speed Pole. It sounds like you are trying all of the right methods. However, I would be concerned about the real possibility of breaking pole or handle in the process.

Is this one pole or two? Looks like one pole, but the weight is shown for a pair.

Question from Dave Riggs
Can these poles be cut down to size?
Answer from Julieana
Hey Dave, these Speed poles can be cut down. But I would try to narrow down a size that works and stick with that! Thanks

Great sticks! Really firm and responsive, I feel the power transfer to my legs when powering uphill. I like the color scheme of the 17/18 model, although one of them I put a giant scratch on when my ski came down on it, so the green doesn't stand out as much any more.

Question from jason D
How do I know what length I need?
Answer from Trace Leches
Hey Jason! Here's the traditional method as far as sizing ski poles goes. Stand up straight, hold your forearms out at a 90° angle, make a fist, then see how high off the ground the top of your fist is. That's more or less the pole length that you should be shooting for. If you'd like a pole that's strictly optimized for downhill performance, stick with that first measurement. If you want a pole that's balanced for powerful climbing and good descending, add 5cm to that first measurement. If you come from a nordic skiing background or would just rather ski with a super long pole, add 10cm to that first measurement.

I am 5' 9" and as far as I remember, when using that method I should be skiing with a 120cm pole. Here's where the personal preference comes into play. When I ski in the resort, I use a 115cm pole but tour with a 125cm pole and sometimes I'll race with a 130cm pole.

Here's my two cents: Looking at your profile, it says that you are 5' 9" (hey, me too!) so I would go for the 125cm pole.

My favorite pole so far ... nice and stiff with limited vibrations due to majority carbon shaft (unlike some Alu poles). Hard to lose in the snow :)

Only complaint is that the strap could be a bit longer for when warm mitts are required.

Question from Aaron O
Is this pole 100% carbon outside the titanal sleeve? Is it basically the same construction as the PDG?
Answer from Trace Leches
Hey Aaron. Yup, you nailed it. Same awesome time tested design as the PDG, only with a new paint scheme and basket system.

Question from mkg
are there replacement baskets available for this pole? one of mine (the flouro part) shattered (there might have been a branch involved) on first use. thanks.
Answer from Trace Leches
Hey Mike! Oh man, sorry to hear about the mishap. Hope you're okay! In theory yes there should be baskets available, but in reality we haven't seen any this year. Send me a picture of what's left of the pole and I *might* be able to get one from Dynafit through a warranty. Based on the nature of the accident it doesn't sound like it'll be covered but it's for sure worth a shot.
Answer from mkg
thanks trace. a series of unfortunate events. the flouro bit does seem pretty fragile.
Answer from mkg
here’s the before, after, and now.
Answer from Trace Leches
Hey Mike! Ah, bummer! Yeah, I'll reach out and let you know what they say!
Answer from mkg
ah man. thanks so much. fwiw, i'd be cool with the older pink basket replacement, if available. actually think that would look pretty boss. minus a basket, i feel like, ya know, my performance is... lacking? pretty sure it's the basket. thanks again.

Question from Pierpaolo
Good morning,
can you tell me the weight in the size cm.135 ?
Thank you very much!
Answer from jbo
Hi Pierpaolo, we weigh everything here, and will certainly weigh this pole when it arrives. Looks for "Specs Verified" in the Specs section and you'll know we've had it on the scale.
Answer from Trace Leches
Hey Pierpaolo, the 135cm is weighing in at 164g per side!
