Finely crafted ski poles like the Vertical Carbon QC have evolved drastically from the rough hewn sticks early humans used, but they still serve the same basic purpose. Lighter, stronger, and more niche-focused, these 100% carbon poles have a low swing weight, quick-change efficient baskets, and comfortable cork grips and adjustable wrist straps. While cavemen used their rough walking sticks for defense from predators, these ultra-lightweight carbon poles are designed for skimo racing and training. Super stiff for maximum power transfer and a really low swing weight means you'll get the most out of your chicken wings. The QC stands for Quick Change, referring to a cool interchangeable basket system, letting you adapt your pokers to the conditions. Whether you're lining up at the starting line of a race or just want to travel fast and light in the backcountry, the Ski Trab Vertical Carbon QC poles have evolved to fit your needs.
- Kevlar reinforcement helps make these poles more impact resistant that typical carbon poles.
- A comfortable cork handle absorbs sweat and is soft and tacky to both gloved and bare hands..
- Vertical wrist strap is comfortable and wraps to smoothly cradle your wrist.
