Poles

Our poles can be used for cross-country skiing, rollerskiing and nordic blading (inline skating with poles).

KV+ offers a range of poles with varying carbon contents, determining the weight and strength of the poles. The basic KV+ Campra poles are 30% carbon and good for recreational skiers at lengths of 145cm and under. For more serious skiers, and longer pole lengths, the Viking, Tempesta and Tornado poles offer 70% to 100% carbon options. Alu poles are great for complete beginners.

LEKI poles offer a high tech 'Trigger Shark' strap and handle mechanism, which is popular with biathletes for its speed of release and ease of replacement. We sell LEKI's versatile Titanium Vario poles and performance Speed Carbon poles.

Rollerski and cross-country ski poles are essentially the same, but you can convert the rollerski poles to XC ski poles by changing the pole tips. Rollerski tips are made of hard metal, XC ski tips have 'baskets' which keep them from getting lost in the snow.

Prices include delivery within the UK - excluding Scottish Highlands & Islands for poles over 150cm. Click here for EU and Scottish Highlands & Island postage information. We do not sell poles to the USA and Canada except with orders including rollerskis or rollerski packages.
