Cross-Country Poles (12)

The shaft, strap, basket and the grip define the comfort and the performance of a cross-country pole. We from Sport Bittl show You now the most important features and characteristics of a cross-country ski pole.
A variety of cross-country poles is made of carbon, which means they feature extremely low weight. In addition, they are extremely stable and ensure effective power transmission. 

Basket: 

If you prefer cross-country skiing on groomed trails, small asymmetric baskets are advantageous. If you prefer cross-country skiing across the country, big baskets are better. For those who prefer deep powder snow and therefore also deal with changing snow conditions, Sport Bittl recommends large baskets.

Grips:

You have the choice between soft cork grips or grips made of plastic. A cork grip is warmer than a conventional plastic grip and thus it is more comfortable. The strap has to be adjustable for more comfort. Thus, the hand is completely enclosed and allows a particularly effective power transmission to the cross-country ski pole.

For the different cross-country skiing styles - classic or skating - you need different pole lengths.

Pole length = height x 0,83 => classic

Pole length = height x 0,9 => skating
