Plant with soul.
Ski with a light heart, and light poles, with Soul Pole's SoulLite Ski Pole. It's made from renewable bamboo, which is light and strong (the SoulLite is also 25% lighter than classic Soul Poles), and has a grip and strap made from recycled materials. The nylon basket is also designed to be removable, if you want to use your poles for summer hiking, and the steel tips are pressure-inserted to make sure they stay stuck in for the pole's whole life.

Stronger than your weak *@@ Aluminum

If your a fan of not replacing poles more than once every 5-10 years then maybe you should check these out. I love to ski trees and variable terrain, but in years past I would always pole plant while carving through the trees and as I would continue to go forward, my pole would plant into a root and invariably bend until the point of no return. After a couple of seasons replacing multiple poles I said *&$* it. So I shopped around and found this newer line by soul poles. I had tried their originals and wasn't impressed because the weight was HEAVY as hell. I hated the swing on them. Then I tried their new line and they are not the lightest poles but significantly lighter than the originals. The grips are more ergonomic and they swing a lot smoother than their predecessor. These poles are just as strong as the originals according to SP. The baskets that come with them are a lot more durable than the original baskets too. They don't break off and splinter like the previous version. With all that said I also get compliments all the time and I don't even have to fish for them. Now I must admit, I don't normally use poles anymore unless its a powder day or I am riding steeps where pole planting and cat tracking is essential. I have already set my personal record and have gone almost 4 months without breaking a pole. So if your looking for a more durable pole, or just a fashionable ski accessory, then this may be the pole for you.
Great look, but not as durable.

Not much of a fan of the soul poles. Theyre cool looking but these have just fallen apart on me in the matter of weeks. Lost the pole baskets the first day of riding plus they broke a week later when I fell on one. They're a cool idea but just do not hold up to metal poles
Plant Your Soul
I didn't know that it was possible to love a pair of ski poles so much. I've been using some old Scotts for the past however many years- and they worked, but finally made the step and upgraded to the Soul Poles after everyone raved about them. Totes confident that was a good choice, these are BOMB.
I am pretty short and a telemarker, so I do like my poles a little shorter. The shortest size still was too big, so we did some simple adjustments. Cut the grips off and got a replacement pair from Soul Poles direct, glued them back on, and so far so good.
My favorite part of the pole of course is the bamboo. I love that they're each unique, and they wear really well. Swing weight is awesome, not in the least cumbersome. If you're in the market for a bamboo pole, look no further- these are all you need.
