Those bent up ski poles

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

You know. The ones that downhill racers use.

 

I am watching the Olympics guys/gals. They have those bent poles. They flail them about. Sometimes tuck. I can't help but think why are they all bent up? Is there any advantage compared to straight poles?

 

Are they properly calibrated?
