Questions & Reviews

Question from Benoit
What size would you recommend for someone 5'9"?
Answer from jbo
Hi Benoit, pole length can be a personal preference for racing and touring, but I'd do the 130s at your height.

Question from andrew
hey jason - this may be a dumb question but i'm asking it it possible to remove the grip from these to cut off 2-3cm to get the perfect length? thanks
Answer from jbo
Hi Andrew, it is possible but not easy. You need to boil the handles for a while to soften the glue enough to not damage them. Getting them back on takes some muscle as well.
Answer from Andrew
ok, thanks for the insight.

Question from Matty B (used product regularly)
Love these poles. One question though... do you guys have a rec for a basket replacement?
Answer from jbo
Hi Matty, thanks for the feedback! We have some Dynafit butterfly baskets on the way which are nice, they splay open and closed based on the terrain. Haven't verified compatibility with the RSR yet but they should work.
