Hewn from 100% carbon fiber and imprinted with racing stripes, these poles are a handy visual..
The TR Carbon Race Pole by One Way is sold as a kit in one length and is built for one purpose: taking first place. The pole comes ready to dance in a 145cm length but can be "permanently adjusted" (gently of course) to your preferred length.

While Movement has made their mark in the ski industry with some of the lightest skis known to man, their focus with the Race Pro Carbon Pole was a bit different.

Standing atop the podium on race day isn't a stand-alone event. Months of training runs that start in the daylight and end with a headlamp, solo dawn patrols, and many thousands of vertical feet climbed all go into winning a race.

In the asymmetrical ra..

One bonus feature includes an extended cork grip so skiers can choke up on those dicey sidehills. Another nice touch is the basket cutouts in the shape of the DPS snowflake lo..
At Skimo Co we're pretty conscientious about things that are light, so the construction of the Vapor Carbon 2 Pole was a real head turner around here. Designed specifically for ski-mountaineering and backcountry skiers, these weight-conscious poles are something we can really get behind. If Bruce Lee taught us nothing else it is that lightweight can also be strong, an attribute sha..

Isn't that how the quote from Lord of the Rings goes? Either way, if Dynafit had a retail dealer in Middle Earth, Sam and Frodo definitely would have taken the Speed Vario 2 pole with them on their trek to Mordor. Features like high de..
Guides are crazy. They haul heavy packs, are strapped with a large radio, and usually bring along a little extra gear should a client forget theirs. They just can't catch a break.

For anyone looking to lighten their load, Leki is bringing a pole worthy of the guiding world to the general populatio..

Ortles? Rhymes with...well, nothing really. Monte Ortles is the tallest peak above Bormio where Ski Trab designs, builds, and tests all of their products including these cool sticks. In all the years there have been adjustable ski poles, the only jump in design seems to have been going from the dreaded twist lock to a clamp-style system. Moving adjustable pole-design forward, Trab ..

The Magico poles are hybrid adjustables that are stronger than most. Ski Trab integrated Kevlar into the coiled carbon fiber lower to add a second layer of strength where you need it most.

The benefits of skiing with a Whippet are undeniable and when you need it, it’s irreplaceable. When you don’t need it, it feels a bit like running with scissors. Sometimes you don’t know if you’ll need it until you get there. Is this going to be a high-speed corn lap or a side-slipping nail-biter? If it’s going to be a ripping corn lap it’s nice to not be skiing with a knife in you..
