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

Users 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. Additional information is available at (last checked Jan 2022)
