    You may plant, but you certainly don't farm.

    If you've never been one to farm turns, then you'll appreciate the aggressive nature of Scott's Riot 18 Ski Pole. Designed with freeskiers in mind, this burly ski pole remains rigid when you're straightlining, sending, and blasting down narrow chutes, cliffs, and tight trees lines, respectively. Its dependable aluminum construction prioritizes strength over weight, and the extended foam grip gives you something to choke up on when you're on the skintrack—oh, and if you are farming some pow turns, the included powder baskets will keep these picks afloat.

    • Freeride poles for skiing the resort or backcountry
    • Stout alloy construction won't break easily
    • Extended foam grips great for skinning and bootpacking
    • Included powder baskets for deep conditions
    • SRS Lite straps detach from poles when you yard sale
    • Item #SCO00QB

    Solid pole, ok straps

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    The poles themselves seem fine so far. Grips are really comfortable. But, the straps have some issues; most importantly the strap simply isn't big enough to fit around my wrist and allow me to grip the pole effectively. I have to extend the velcro so that only about a 1/2 inch is still velcroed together, which not ideal because now there's not much keeping the strap fastened and more velcro is exposed to the elements. Secondly, the fact the strap uses velcro; it's fine right now, but in my experience velcro doesn't do well when constantly introduced to water/snow, so I have my doubts about longevity.

    Burly!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Scott poles have a long history in the ski industry. Built to be strong and light. Others try but cannot compete. Aluminum ferrules, engineered baskets and swaged (thickening pole wall through the taper) all make Scott poles the best on the market.

    The Perfect Sidecountry Pole

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Absolutely love this pole. Super strong shaft that seems to be unbreakable, together with the elongated grip for ease of use on traverses and side slopes when trekking out to Catherines at Alta, or Honeycomb when at Solitude. Great Pow basket, and releasable straps. Perfect pole for anyway in the Wasatch.

    Won't Break easily? CHALLENGE ACCEPTED

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I haven't had a really hard crash since I picked these up, so I'm still trying to put these through the wringer for durability. They probably should have bent by now, compared to other poles. I'm really hard on my gear and these are holding up. A great feature is the removable straps. Great safety feature.
    Update: I haven't had any yardsale crashes but I've defiantly crashed with them hard a couple times. They are not just holding up, they haven't shown any sign of bending even with several paint removing scratches down the shaft!!! The extended foam grip is great when you are hiking a side-hill. If these ever break, I'm sure to buy another pair.
