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

16/14mm Adjustable Shaft: This is an adjustable touring pole that utilizes two different aluminum shaft diameters: 16mm and 14mm in order to easily adjust to different sizes. Lightweight and strong, aluminum is usually the best way to go.

Leki Trigger S Grip: More security, more comfort and a better power transmission have been enduring until today and still remain the unbeatable advantages of the former revolution. No more “troublesome stripping off the strap from the glove”, because the strap can easily be clicked in and out the grip with the touch of a button. In addition risk danger of being injured by “whirling” poles has been reduced significantly, because the strap releases upwards at high tension, such as occurring in a fall. The broad cut of the strap around the glove as well as the direct contact to the grip result in a perfect power transmission. A strap which is permanently connected to the pole is “out” just like the obsolete ski binding with binding straps.

Steel Pole Tips: Steel is strong and can take a beating overtime. That's why steel makes sense for pole tips, it can pierce through the snow easily and will last through some heavy use.

Leki Big Mountain Basket: This is a large sized, lightweight basket that's deisgned for soft snow conditions. It will stay on top of the snow instead of plunging to the bottom. Also, its blue and matches the rest of the pole which is a bonus.,/p>

Adjustable Length 44-56in: These poles have a large adjustment range, ideal for alpine touring or even just pushing across a cat track. The range goes from 44-56in which should work for most heights, nba players included.

Leki Speed Lock System: Highest holding force of all external locking systems on the market for additional safety. Extremely quick adjustment and fastening even when wearing thick gloves in wet weather, ice and snow. Mechanism is self-explanatory and easy to use.
