February 17, 2006, Newsletter Issue #84: Benefits of Carbon Fiber Ski Poles

Tip of the Week

There are many different materials used in different types of ski poles. We are way past wood sticks at this point and state of the art materials make skiing less dangerous and ski equipment last longer. Perhaps the most durable ski poles are carbon fiber ski poles.

Carbon fiber ski poles are made from a composite of the sturdiest synthetic fibers. The carbon fiber is actually woven prior to being sealed with a coating that provides both durability and flex. The key benefit to carbon fiber ski poles is their flexibility.

Carbon fiber ski poles can withstand the worst beating that your favorite slopes can dish out. Because of the woven fibers, these poles will bend and flex well beyond traditional poles from metals or woods. For active skiers who encounter rough terrain, carbon fiber ski poles may be the answer you need.
