Got my new K2 Automatics and just couldn't wait to bust 'em out in the sidecountry / backcountry of Taos, and I just gotta say... Goldang! Jabbing these poles into snow is like cutting through hot butter with a knife. A knife that has a super ultimate plastic thing that keeps you from cutting to far into the hot hot butter.

In addition, I was confronted by a yeti in the parking lot and used these bad boys to poke it in the eye.

If you want to be a winner, use these poles.

Although a little on the heavy side, this pole covers all the bases and seems well constructed. It should provide years of service.

    Comments about K2 Automatic Ski Poles 2013:

    The price for these poles were so inexpensive compared to other websites out there that I wasn't sure about the quality. I was pleasantly surprised. They are high quality and sharp looking. I bought these poles for my son, and he absolutely loved them and is using them again this weekend. Great product!!

        They're ski poles. What are you expecting? They won't make you coffee in the morning, hence the 4 of 5 stars.

          Great ski poles for a great price! I have had Atomic brand ski poles for many years and decided to purchase these just because of the design/color. These have held up nicely so far, they do not scratch like my Atomic poles either! I've had these out 3 times and each time is fantastic with these! Lightweight and durable! Would definitely recommend to any level skier!

                        Great ski pole for the price, looks great too. Handle is a little small, but not really a problem. Very light weight and easy to get into position for turns.

                            I couldn't believe these poles - without buckling, they supported both me and my son together as I dug in and propelled ourselves slightly uphill as we progressed in the busy "cattlechute" of a line to the ski lift over the holidays. Can't wait to get out there and use them again (without the maddening crowds, or the mad cows for that matter!)

                                I just returned from a ski trip in Boone, NC. I used these poles the entire week (mostly for downhill skiing on corduroy/ hard pack). They are lightweight and durable. They have solid baskets, and I believe they will serve well for many years to come.

                                    I bought these to replace a pair of cheap poles that had been through a few gnarly wipeouts. They were about the same price as my old pair, but these seem much stronger and are just as light and comfortable.

                                      Purchased the set of poles for my husband. He loves them and gets lots of use out of them. They are sturdy and hold up well for his adventurous side.

                                        I needed new poles and had looked at these at another store. Evo offered at a much better deal, and it was worth the few day's wait.

                                        Good poles that are light and do what they are supposed to. I like the simple grips/straps that took one adjustment at the beginning of my day and didn't need touched again.

                                            These were my first pair if poles for skiing. They are great, sturdy and lightweight. Not uncomfortable in general except for the grip which is kind of weird (I use mittens). However the price was too great to let them pass.

                                            Got my new K2 Automatics and just couldn't wait to bust 'em out in the sidecountry / backcountry of Taos, and I just gotta say... Goldang! Jabbing these poles into snow is like cutting through hot butter with a knife. A knife that has a super ultimate plastic thing that keeps you from cutting to far into the hot hot butter.

                                            In addition, I was confronted by a yeti in the parking lot and used these bad boys to poke it in the eye.

                                            If you want to be a winner, use these poles.

                                                    Good poles, cheap and lightweight. Should be fine for recreational skiing, but I have not used them yet.

                                                      Nice deal on a pole in the outlet store. Cheap/good value. Baskets seem strong.

                                                          Solid poles that are light and durable, which is pretty much all you need. Plus the price is very affordable.
