Ski poles for Sitski

Tornado flip poles are flexible and work well when riding on sitski

Description
Ski poles have handles like crutches. A strap attaches the pole around the forearm. On the bottom is a folding ski for the pole. The ski pole is very light and has many settings: It can be lengthened with a quick locking mechanism without any tools; the angle of the ski pole is also adjustable. The handles are adjustable vertically and horizontally. Folding the ski pole up provides a grip in icy snow and on the slopes.

Model: Flip poles - Tornado Flexible

Authors comments
The flexible ski poles are incredibly lightweight and have a convenient grip. With slightly inwardly rotated hands and the ski pole held straight ahead riding is relaxed because no unnecessary muscles have to work.
