Alpine ski poles - the ski poles for the special challenges
Alpine ski poles must be adapted to the conditions on the downhill slopes and therefore differ from a cross-country or touring ski pole.
With alpine ski poles at XSPO the race can begin
Only if a ski pole is adapted to its area of use will it be of help to the athlete and ultimately improve their athletic performance. Alpine ski poles are specially curved. This is an advantage on downhill runs because the Poles adapt to the skier's body. This makes it easier and faster to ski tightly around obstacles on the slopes.
Those who are dedicated to alpine skiing are fast on their feet and place a lot of value on appropriate equipment. Models from leading manufacturers are available in the Ski Online Shop at XSPO. These are not only inexpensive, but also offer a high level of safety and are at the cutting edge of technology. When it comes to the material, a combination of aluminium and carbon is often used. The alpine ski poles are of small diameter and yet stable and maneuverable. Telescopic poles are also adjustable and offer the athlete a lot of flexibility.
Alpine racing differs from a normal downhill run of the pleasure skier. The equipment should be adapted accordingly. Alpine skiing requires ski poles that provide the athlete with safety while being light, maneuverable and yet robust. This is achieved by a special construction and material composition.
Alpine ski poles are specially designed for downhill skiing in alpine terrain. The Poles serve to push the athlete at the start and ensure that the skier does not lose his balance once he has picked up speed. In addition, ski poles also make it easier to climb up the slope or move forward on the ski lift.
