Everyone seems to have GoPro on the slopes these days and we would be lying if we said we weren't tired of watching Point of View Clips from your helmet. The Fat BC poles allow you to switch up your angles because it has a GoPro mount installed on one of the grips. It can be used as a Selfie stick, follow cam or any other creative way you can think of using it. Besides this super cool feature, this is pole is 22mm in diameter, much fatter than the usual 14-16mm. There is also a long "moto grip" that's oversized and fits comfortably in your glove. This pole has two sets of baskets included, one for powder and one for groomers.

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

The rubber grip on this pole is about double the length of a normal pole and resembles the grips on a BMX Bike. Since the grip is long, you can comfortably choke your hands up on the pole for easier hiking while in the backcountry.

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

Interchangeable Baskets: These poles do not come with wider baskets, but they are compatible with any Goode pole basket from the last few years, so if you have powder baskets on an older set of Goodes, you can re-use them with these poles!

There is a GoPro mount pre-installed on one of these poles. All you need is your GoPro and the screw to secure it to the pole. Start stacking those selfies up for your Instagram!

All-Mountain Baskets: Baskets that are big enough for powder and small enough for groomers. Basically they are a medium size that will get the job done well enough in any terrain or conditions.

This pole is slightly oversized compared to most poles with a 22mm diameter. Most poles fall in the 14-18mm range but this pole is a cut above the rest. Still lightweight and very strong, you'll probably wind up preferring this width!

Adjustable Nylon Strap: A nylon strap with easy adjustment ensures the poles don't get away from you after jumping off that big cliff on the backside of the mountain. Or with some imagination, they can help you carry a pair of skis.
