Dynafit Speed Vario Pole


With enough versatility to satisfy guides and pole-enthusiasts, the Speed Vario is light enough that even racers will jump for joy. This Dynafit stick does it all and does it well, the epitome of a high-performance ski touring pole. The EVA grip is ergonomic and carries an extension for choking up or side-hilling while still at full-length. The quest for reliable length-adjustment is over thanks to Dynafit's Safety Snap System, a series of grooves and markings that reduce slippage and quickly identify the proper length. A tab on the top of the grip helps articulate risers, lock or unlock toe levers, and tickle your partner. The Dynafit Speed Vario pole is a slick, lightweight, and functional pole for use in the backcountry. Sold in pairs.

  • Aluminum Safety Snap System is a quicko-chango length adjuster.
  • 2K EVA foam grip with a simple and supportive hand-strap.
  • 2K powder basket is decidedly-yet-barely above average.
  • Aluminum tip improves rock-protection and durability.
  • Carbon!

Questions & Reviews

Question from Dave
How do I adjust the straps?
Answer from Jeff
Dave, to tighten simply pull the short piece. To pen up, pull the loop UP (above the handle).

Thanks Jeff, got it, duh -Speed

Question from Brendan
I just broke the lower section on one of my Broad Peak poles. Do you know if these are interchangeable? They look the same. And, if so, do you sell replacement lower sections?
Answer from Jeff
Brendan, We don't have any Dynafit lower sections available.
If you can measure the outside diameter of the lower and email us at, maybe we can see if a lower from another brand will work.

Question from Chris
Do you have any parts for this pole? I broke the plastic sleeve after overextending it and then loading it.. Oops!
Answer from Trace Leches
Hey Chris! No parts, though we may be able to get a warranty going for you! Tough to confidently say that I can make anything happen at all, but there's totally a chance especially because it's a new pole!
Answer from Chris C
Thanks for getting back!
I didn’t buy them through skimo so not sure if that changes things.
Answer from jbo
Hi Chris, we can often help in that situation, though not sure it's beneficial for you versus leveraging your dealer.
