long alpine ski poles

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi all,

I am just getting into skiing, I have found skis and boots but I am looking for poles. Catch is I am over 7 feet tall, and I think I need at least a 56 inch pole. (and a sturdy one at that)  I cant seem to find one anywhere, but all the sizing charts imply they exist.

Can anyone help?

You're probably hosed for carbon or composite poles, but you should be able to find aluminum to fit.

If you want a race-style pole, Leki make a Super G pole up to 150cm (59 overall length).

If you don't mind a touring-style pole with a nordic-style grip and asymmetric basket, Komperdell, Gabel  and others make poles that should fit you.

 

 

Are you looking for actual retailers?
