How do you determine what length of ski pole is best for you? The chart on this page can be used as a general guide and is based on your height. The most common "old time" method is to invert the pole with the grip on the floor and grab the shaft under the basket. The pole is a good fit if your forearm is at 90 degrees (or parallel to the floor).

This is a good starting point, but personal preference may dictate a slightly shorter pole in modern day slalom where racers attack in a little lower body position and the pole plant becomes awkward if the pole is too long.

GS/SG and DH poles are typically longer for a stronger push out of the start and pole planting is not an issue.

Select a longer pole if in doubt as most shafts can be cut down to size. Note: Cutting down GS/SG and DH poles is a bit more complicated due to the bend of the pole. They may be cut down some, but keep in mind the placement of the bend relative to the body while in a tuck, before making this decision. It may seem obvious to some, but always cut from the top of the pole with the grip removed.

Description & Features

Swix World Cup Pro Carbon ski racing poles are unsurpassed in quality and manufacturing, and the reason World Cup skiers prefer SWIX shape-molded shafts. IPM (Internal Pressure Molding) technology allows SWIX to shape and bend composite ski poles to exact specifications. Carbon fiber provides for stiff, lightweight performance with just the right amount of fiberglass for impact strength and durability. This composite allows for a more explosive start and less drag.

Downhill - IPM DHC Aero Shaped

Downhill pole based on IPM technology with an extra bend just below the handle (wrist bend) to ensure optimal aerodynamics. Elliptical cross-section minimizes air drag. Downhill racing handle and basket. The DHC is 3 times stiffer than downhill poles in aluminum, giving a much more explosive start and 50% less wind drag than conventional 18 mm aluminum poles.

Super G/Giant Slalom - IPM SGC Aero Shaped

Curved composite Super G shaft based on IPM technology. Elliptical cross-section minimizes air drag. Downhill racing handle and basket. A must for competition, but also a fantastic pole for the high-speed cruiser.

Slalom

Newly developed shaft with a focus on impact strength, balance, and stiffness. DD4 handle with the patented Swix ADD Tab system. Alpine racing basket. The ultimate pole for the skier that wants the best. For slalom, giant slalom and freeskiing.

Swix WC Pro Carbon SL Poles have a thicker shaft this year to be compatible with Swix Adult SL Pole Guards (no protector/adpator needed). Other full SL guards may attach if you drill and drive a screw through the top of the grip.

FEATURES

  • Carbon Composite Ski Racing Pole
  • IMP (Internal Pressure Molding) Technology allows for precise standards
  • Superior stiffness and swing weight
  • Elliptical shaft design for less wind drag
  • Racing baskets

Technical Info

Composite Shafts

A combination of carbon fiber and fiberglass provides a lighter weight pole while retaining enough strength to resist impacts. For high-level alpine ski racing.

Add Tab Grip

An Anti Dropping device that prevents you from losing your grip during ski racing. Avoid losing seconds and focus trying to regain your ski pole grip in competition.
