At first I figured I'd only use these for skinning, but I found them very handy at the resort. They're also not cold like typical poles under your leg on the lift and it's soft.
CAVEAT extra length when choking down can be an issue in the trees.
I lost a basket and emailed Folkrm, and they were nice to sent me a replacement. Talk about customer service.
NOTE TO OTHERS: Put some electrical tape on before adding basket!!
I love the long grip for different terrain. There’s no need to think when using them just choke up when you need to. The solid construction gives you confidence in the back country that adjustable poles don’t bring in my opinion.
Excellent customer service as well.
I absolutely love these things! Not only that but the customer support is unreal! These are light weight, stiff and way better than fiddling with adjustable poles.
While I wish they had stock of the other colors (will have to buy another pair next year) my black set is great. Theyre light, swing naturally, and have really made me realize how much I like to choke up close to a foot when skiing really hard lines - keeps me from accidentially dragging a pole but theyre still there if absolutely needed. They survived several long pole whacking sessions with some friends when racking up gnar points and really made me look like I was the best skier on the mountain, which is good, because I am.
My only complaint is that the 125cm I received is longer than any other 125cm poles Ive ever used. I don't mind choking up (thats the whole point- I get that) but I was expecting a true 125 but in reality they are closer to 130cm.
