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
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.
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.
Only complaint is that the strap could be a bit longer for when warm mitts are required.
can you tell me the weight in the size cm.135 ?
Thank you very much!
