Strikingly similar to the timeless Joystick checkered pole, which is an ode to Vans Slip-ons, the Leki Checker-X will definitely bring a little throwback flare you your ski ensemble. These poles have a very simple design with an 18mm aluminum shaft, a low profile 621 grip/strap, a durable steel tip and large powder baskets that will stay on top of the deepest snow. The Checker X is your new favorite pole, we just know it.

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

18mm Diameter: The diameter at the top of these poles is a beefy 18mm to give it greater strength. The pole tapers down to a smaller diameter toward the tip to save some weight.

Leki 621 Grip with Buckle Strap: This is a low profile rubberized grip with and easily adjustable buckle strap. Freestyler will be able to grab your skis better with this style grip too.

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.

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.
