Comments about K2 Powder Snow Baskets 2015:

I purchased these powder baskets with the intention of retrofitting my original Joystick poles to be better equipped for the deep stuff in Hokkaido. The EVO description made no mention of compatibility restrictions, but I suspected they would not be plug-and-play.

The through-holes were indeed too large to press fit directly onto a bare ski pole at a reasonable height. This product is clearly meant to mate with an adapter piece on some series of (or all) K2 poles... but the adapter is not included and the compatible models/years of poles are not specified.

I ended up 3D printing a custom adapter piece in SLS Nylon... it turned out great, but is probably not an economical approach.

Now fitted to my ski poles, these baskets have been keeping me afloat in deep Japanuary pow! They're taking a beating day in and day out (with some mild deformation) but are serving me well about 15 days in.

Comments about K2 Powder Snow Baskets 2015:

I bought these baskets because they were cheap and I lost a basket. Found out they only work for K2 poles. My local shop ended up hooking me up for free. This should probably be mentioned in the summary description.

      Works as designed. I purchased these for a trip to Jackson Hole... Snow was deep in February and theses definitely helped when traversing. Minimal drag in the trees too.

        I recently took these new baskets on a trip to Utah with me and they worked phenomenally! I'm a powder hound so the extra surface area really gave me that extra grip. I really enjoyed using these baskets and recommend them to all.
