Just got a killer deal on these. They are a bit popular for my tastes in ski pole and have a super heavy swing weight as compared to my my 1988 Leki Automatic poles that remain my "Go To" poles. The swing is even heavier than my Black Diamond adjustable poles. They are solid, but man they are BRICKS! I have never considered locking up my poles but I always lock my skis. The Riots have a large orange powder basket so I drilled a hole in each basket to pass my lock through. Any other ideas?
Scott Riot ski poles
for what...personalisation? Not sure what you're after here.
If I was buying Scotts I'd be looking at things like the MJ and the Zeo 13. One is sturdy enough for just about anything while remaining flickable, the other has a silly-light swing weight while being quite durable enough for non-racing use. I am a bit miffed that the Pro Taper now has a fiberglass blend, but, hey, Scott now has Life-Lock under their umbrella so I guess they needed -something- to compete with Goode on price.
Thanks! Was just trying to figure out how to lock them up so they don't get snatched. I ended up drilling holed in the plastic baskets so I can pass my ski lock through them and then through my bindings and around the stand during breaks.

My old Leki's are so old and weathered that I'm afraid they are going to blow up on me. I've never paid $50 for a pair of poles in my life so this is new territory for me. Totally agree about the glow in the dark thing. Kinda unimpressed w/ that as well as the heavy swing weight.
