A pole that supports every decision you make in the backcountry.
- Made of a titanal upper shaft and a carbon lower for the strongest and lightest performance
- Safety Snap locking mechanism can be opened and closed with a gloved hand, slides easily, and clamps down for a secured lock that doesn't slide
- Adjusts between 115 and 145cm, so you can dial in the size for your height or current climbing angle
- Full-foam grip and neoprene strap let you tour with comfort and ensure you don't loose your pole
- A wide powder basket gives you power in deep snow and the Alu Flex vario wolfram-carbide tip plunges through thick ice for support in slick spots

Elegant, lots of nice features, but weak
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I bought a pair two winters ago and they saw extensive use in the Italia Dolomites. I am one of the last telemark fundamentalists, hiking up on skins and always looking for the drops and clean lines going down. As I said the these Ski Poles (the correct name is skis tav in Norwegian) have a lot of nice things going form them, light weight, a very good grip (unusual for skis Poles made by people not used to skiing - by that I mean what in English is referred to as Nordic style) especially the top grip, which no other have and is very handy when working your way up steep slopes. The powder basket (trines) is fairly wide, which is good but stiff, which means it is, in my mind semi-optimal, it would have been better being flexible there by always making sure you had a good grip. The Achilles heel is the look. A very nice and light weight design, but I broke the lock on mine twice (going up), so the shop gave me up and gave me a different type... Ok I am a fairly big bloke 188 cm and 100kg but it should not be a problem. The lock broke as it was being readjusted not due too the weight of use. I am sure the good Austrians will improve this, and if they do apart from the basket it is one of the best skistaver for ski alpinism. An after though check out the new Swix skistav, if they have got their lock right it might be a even better skistav, God tur

Up and Down
I bought these poles for my wife at the beginning of last winter. On the positive, the poles have a super light swing weight, nice grips, and a good locking mechanism. On the down side the carbon fiber shaft snapped after 30~40 backcountry days. The poles were never used resort skiing and were not abused in anyway. Not sure why it snapped. Maybe due to the twisting / cross load associated with spinning dynafit bindings? The carbon shafts are not round (they have a flat side) so I wonder if a stress builds up along the flat edge.
