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. All those funny off-balance falls, pounding on your boots to clear the packed powder, and celebratory pole taps with your friends can take its toll on your ski poles. If you want a sturdy and reliable race pole that can stand up to yard sales and all the blatant abuse you throw its way, then the Trab Piuma Gara QC ski poles are for you. In addition to a solid aluminum shaft construction and interchangeable tips (QC = Quick Change), Trab added a race handle and a breakaway wrist strap which will pop off if you catch your pole on a tree or bush. For a race-weight pole that won't shatter if you look at it wrong, get a pair of the Ski Trab Piuma Gara QC poles and hit the skin track.

  • Alp Clip strap and Gara Clip Handle provide a safety function that releases the strap from the handle if pulled on moderately hard.
  • Quick Change Race baskets and Widia tips allow this pole to work in varying snow conditions and for a variety of needs.
  • Ergal (aluminium) shaft is sturdy and light, perfectly built for skimo racing, training, and verbal abuse.
  • Cork handles absorb sweat and don't get slippery when wet like Bon Jovi.

Questions & Reviews

Question from Kyle
Are these poles really 30g lighter per pole than the older version Ski Trab Piuma Gara Poles?
Answer from TSB
Hey Kyle, yes, the new Piuma Gara QCs are a bit more ~piuma~ than the old ones -- you can thank the different shaft design.

Question from Kyle
What's the difference between these poles and the Ski Trab Piuma Gara Poles? I'm looking for a pair of poles for fast and light ski mountaineering and want to avoid carbon fiber since they seem to snap so easily. Which would you recommend?
Answer from TSB
Hey Kyle, the older Piuma Garas didn't offer the QC/Quick Change system, which allows you to swap the tip and basket depending on snow conditions for Ski Trab's quiver of QC offerings. The new Piuma Gara also has a slim rubberized grip below the cork handle, allowing you to choke up and plant your poles more aggressively on descents.
