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 coiled design is meant to provide these poles some give before they catastrophically snap, like some fiber poles, and the dual construction offers the benefits of two ultralight and strong fibers. The upper shaft is 16mm of worry-free Ergal aluminum. They are combined with a geared snap-lock system that’s as reliable as you make it. The impressive design continues into the baskets, which are toothed to add extra grip and are flat in front so the tips aren’t pushed out of hard snow. A great all-rounder.

  • Carbon-Kevlar technology reinforces the lower shaft.
  • Evo baskets are ¾ circles with mini-teeth underneath.
  • Foam grips are adorned with adjustable Alp Clip straps.
  • Evo segment locking system is adjustable and reliable.
  • 16x0.8mm Ergal aluminum upper shafts are bomber.
  • Adjustable in length from 105cm to 145cm.

Update 2019/20: Ski Trab gave these poles a new coat of paint, but otherwise they remain the same.

Question from Mark Esposito
Do the Magico Poles have a quick release straps?
Answer from Trace Leches
Hey Mark! The straps are quick-release but they have a ton of glue built into the release mechanism for some reason. So yes, they're technically quick release, but the glue needs to be broken in order for the release function to work. It's not terribly difficult to break the glue, but some have more than others.

Question from gareth
When will you be getting these in again?
Answer from Trace Leches
Hey Gareth! The plan is to stock up again, but it will be in a 17/18 season order that will likely be here around August or September! Keep your eyes open though, these poles are awesome!
Answer this question:

by Smac (used product regularly)
These are an excellent pair of poles which I've put through the ringer bushwhacking, on lengthy approaches and exits, and breakable crust etc. The pole grips are nice and soft and unlike many molded rubber pole grips they can slide easily between your pack and back and are easily maneuvered without getting caught on clothing or ski pack material and straps. The pole wrist straps are really light and thickly padded, they are easily removable with a quick release button on the top of the pole. The only downside I can see to this is if you like to manipulate your bindings with your pole handles the wrist strap could possibly pop out accidentally, otherwise it's a clever way to quickly place or remove the straps. The flicklock appears to be a smoothly operating strong camming wheel which can easily be tensioned while out, it's a sturdy brass screw that accepts a flat / straight edge. The upper shaft is sturdy aluminum and the lower is a lightweight carbon that appears to be stronger than any other carbon poles I've used (Dynafit Manaslus and Broad Peaks).
