Also known as the Gara Aero World Cup poles, these Ski Trab sticks are designed for race abuse. Made with Ergal aluminum, the poles have a bending resistance of 60kg / mmq, meaning they are more resilient than a typical carbon fiber pole. While not the lightest, they make up for it in price and durability. The race baskets are a new design from Trab, with equal parts powder push and firm snow leverage. The tips are capped with a sharp race pick so you won’t have any slippage. The handles are a lightweight cork supported by ample adjustable straps, great for adding that extra push to your stride. The Piuma race poles come in sizes ranging from 110cm - 145cm and should last you a few seasons.

  • 16mm thick Ergal aluminum shafts are strong yet lighter than most.
  • Comfortable support straps help you get leverage from your arms.
  • Gara (race) baskets cup soft snow and don’t pry the tips out.

Bottom Line Durable race pole
by Smac (used product regularly)
These poles are half the cost of their Trab elite counterpart poles but they are still exceptionally light and the tip poles and baskets do a great job of planting in the firmest of conditions and propelling a skier forward. The cork grips are really comfortable and so far seemingly durable and the wrist harnesses are easily removable with a well thought out / designed quick release button on the top of the pole. The grips are easily removable to cut down the pole shaft with the help of a heat gun. I've put these poles through a number of compromising situations with heinous ski conditions and they've bent and snapped back into place. Like all Ski Trab products they're well thought out with impeccable attention to detail.

Question from AJS
Hey Jason,

Are the grips on these poles removable (i.e. like XC ski's?)

Answer from Trace Leches
I don't see why not. The grips are made of cork and some really hard plastic that's textured for extra grip. They are glued on but you could probably just heat them up like a normal grip and they'd slide right off. What will you be replacing them with? -Trace
