The BD Traverse is a versatile backcountry pole that's aluminum, adjustable and very lightweight. Adjustable from 37-57in, the Traverse offers ton's of flexibility for both resort and backcountry skiing. The rubber choke up grips, powder baskets and extended tips ensure reliable performance while going uphill in the back/sidecountry. Then simply unlock the metal Flicklock Pro Clamp, readjust, and you're ready to make your descent. Sometimes adjustable poles help get you out of the flats much more efficiently on the resort too!

Ski poles are your friends. They help you maintain proper form and balance, as well as help you get across the flat spots. The only people that shouldn't use poles are kids that cannot parallel yet, true beginners, snowboarders, and park skiers that desperately need to look like snowboarders. So if you aren't one of these categories, you should be using poles.
Sizing poles is easy. Just use the ski pole Sizing chart to give you a good estimate of what length of poles you should be using.
Ideally, your arm should be parallel to the ground when you grasp the pole (with the tip up) below the basket.

There are cases when you can go longer or shorter than what the chart recommends:

  • If you are a bump skier, you should size down 2-8 inches.
  • If you want an aggressive stance for steeps and higher speed skiing, size down 2 inches.
  • If you are doing a lot of park skiing, size down 2-6 inches
  • If you Telemark, size down 2-6 inches
  • If you are powder skiing a lot, size up 2 inches.
  • If you are ski jousting, size up 4-12 inches

We have thousands of poles to choose from, and if we don't have your size, any of our poles are easy to cut to length.
