The Compactor Poles are a great addition to your gear collection! These are solid, lightweight adjustable poles (yes you do get two at this price) that can be used for resort skiing and of course in the sidecountry and backcountry. The Compactors can be adjusted between 46-54in (115-135cm) or 40-50in (105-125cm). These poles are also collapsible so you can collapse these poles down to throw in your pack, which is what BC snowboarders will love about them (unless of course you like to ride with poles, which you shouldn't).

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.

 

Description

Details

Aluminum Construction: This pole is made of lightweight aluminum, which has a very high strength to weight ratio, and they are quite stiff.

Z Pole Technology: Our Z-Pole Technology was born from our expertise in avalanche probes—by using a three-section shaft, a concealed inner Kevlar cord and innovative speed cones, our collapsible Z-Poles snap into place and lock with a single pull. When not in use, a single push button releases the pole for compact storage.

Powder Basket: This basket measures 90mm in diameter and has the traditional pow basket star shape. If you find that your poles are sinking down too far in the deep snow, this is a great solution. This basket isn't too big, it can be used everyday no problem.

Adjustable Length up to 20cm with FlickLock Pro: Not only is this pole collapsible, it is adjustable in length up to 20cm very easily by using the FlickLock Pro mechanism. Simply lift the lever adjust to desired size and snap it closed. It doesn't get any easier.
