Carbon Fiber Construction: Carbon fiber's strength to weight ratio makes this material highly desirable for gear heads, but is quite functional in the skiing world. These poles have a very low swing weight, have excellent shock absorption, and are super strong.
Ultra Thin 10.4mm diameter: Ultra Thin 10.4mm diameter: Almost pencil thin, this shaft reduces aerodynamic drag, and has natural shock absorption to take the edge off when skiing ice, not to mention that this pole is incredibly light!
Ice Breaker Tip: A sharp, yet durable tip doesn't slip on firm snow to get solid plants for turning and pushing along the flats. Keep in mind that they are sharp, so use caution during pole jousting matches.
PHA Adjustment: Stands for Precision Height Adjustment, and gives the skier the chance to dial the grip to the exact height needed for the conditions or the skier's preference. It will allow for a 3'' adjustment below the size listed.
Rubberized grip: A tacky material aids in grip between the gloves and handle (grip) of the poles, so you don't loose, uh grip.
G-Strap: This strap is very different from the rest. Basically, it gets strapped to your gloves with a velcro cinch and a button, then it attaches to a little clip on the poles. You don't have to worry about moving your hand in and out of straps all day getting on and off the lift. Just a sharp pull upward will release the strap from the poles.
Inter-Loc Hook: This pole's strap has a metal loop that snaps into the handle, that will pop out if yanked hard, so your arm doesn't get torn off when the basket gets stuck in a bush. If you are fortunate enough to have Inter-Loc gloves, then this grip is compatible.
