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

16mm Shaft Diameter: This pole has a 16mm shaft diameter so it stays straight, strong and durable throughout its long life.

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.

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.

Powder and Standard Baskets: Both are included with these poles, and can easily be switched back and forth, thanks to the threaded tip. Just unscrew and screw back on the ones you need for the day's conditions.
