Race or train with the X 500 Ski Pole in hand and you'll get crisp, powerful pushes from every pole plant. There's just enough carbon in the shaft of this pole to improve the overall performance without adding astronomically to the price tag. Other features include a contoured, neoprene wrist strap and oversized basket, two factors that help you dig deep when you're racing your friends skate-style or classical.
- Shaft is constructed with 50% carbon that reduces weight without sacrificing rigidity or overall strength
- Cork grip is contoured to reduce grip fatigue during long ski sessions
- Wrist strap has a wide profile and a tapered shape that supports your wrist so you transfer more power to your pole with each push
- Neoprene makes the Pro wrist strap comfortable and flexible enough to accommodate different hand and wrist shapes and sizes
- Large basket has teeth that grip icy and hardpacked surfaces so each pole plant is solid and crisp
