Product Info

Rossignol PMC Ski Poles 2012: Aluminum Alloy 5086 is commonly used in the construction of ship hulls due to stress corrosion cracking resistance. Rossi took that material and made some strong poles out of it with the Rossignol PMC Ski Poles. They don’t look too shabby either, which is definitely a bonus.

I am an expert skier and purchased these poles because I am now a "groomer" and "fair weather" skier, due to two severe spine injuries sustained while skiing. I wanted something lightweight, yet durable. Rossignol is second-to-none when it comes to using durable materials, while still making a cheap product. I have been using these poles for weeks now and I enjoy the flex, yet stiffness they provide on groomers, while remaining super light weight for small jumps and boxes in the park. I feel like they aren't even in my hands. The only con I have is that the grips are a little too large for my hands. But hey, you can't make grips to fit everyone! Nice job Rossi.

I bought these poles along with my new skis. I chose these because they were the absolute cheapest (and after all, poles are poles).

Second day skiing, one of the poles bends (I don't even remember hitting it or anything). The great guys at EVO customer service send me an additional set of poles - so at that point I had 3 proper poles. ~20 ski days later all 3 of those poles are bent in some way or another. One isn't that bad and the other I managed to straighten up by hitting against a tree for a while. So those are the ones I still use. The other two are bent beyond repair.

Soon (probably for next season) I will just fork over more money but get something that doesn't bend so easily.

    Comments about Rossignol PMC Ski Poles 2012:

    I break / loose poles all the time, so cheap lightweight(ish) ones like this are perfect for me. Let's face it, they are just basically a pair of sticks at the end of the day - no need to get too technical...

      Poles are great quality. We ski a lot of icy slopes and they took a pounding with no bending. They are very strong for such light poles.

        Honestly this is a great pair of ski poles and I really don't know why anyone would go with any other deal than this. It blows my mind how expensive some are but these were very affordable.

              Really, there's not much to say about poles.. These seem fine to me, although they are NOT as sexy as the ones which got stolen (sob).... those were slimmer and a little lighter and probably tougher too. But these poles do the job just fine too. There isn't much "performance" in a pole except putting it down in the snow and making a turn.

                These are beautiful poles and I used them every day, but I have small hands - a ladies size small glove fits me perfectly. The design of the handle (the grip is fatter in the middle than on the top or bottom) on these poles prevents me from wrapping my fingers around it for a good grip. At the end of a long ski day, the heel of my hand is always a bit sore from this "ridge." Simplicity would have been a better design here.

                          These piles work for all conditions/ ability levels. There cheap in price but not in quality. If your skiing a moderate amount of times yearly these poles will work for you

                            Purchased the poles for my daughter. She is a beginner, and they are still straight, and holding up. Can't beat the price for the pole.

                              Basic poles that do the trick. You're not getting super high performance, but the price is right.

                                What can I say? It's a pretty basic ski pole. Nothing flashy or fancy about the pole, but it gets the job done just fine. I bought these primarily because they were super affordable. I have been pretty unlucky with ski poles in the past, averaging one broken pair per season. For that reason, I am simply not willing to spend the money for a fancy, expensive pair. If you're looking for a simple ski pole that will carry out all of the basic functions of a ski pole with aplomb, then look no further.

                                      Love the bend in the pole (ski rentals don't normally have these types of poles) color is good and goes with anything. The handle grip is fantastic, I wish the straps were velcroe but hey to each their own. They seem pretty durable. They were awesome for the price I paid, couldn't have asked for a better deal.

                                        There isn't much to say about these poles, they perform their function as they should for all normal ski conditions. At one point I fell, landing on the pole and bending it. However, it was easily bent back to nearly-straight using a tree nearby. For the price, these are well worth purchasing.

                                            I used these to ski with my kids as they're learning...given inexpensive cost never felt bad about leaving them at the bottom of the hill when I needed to have hands free to help the little ones.

                                            For me they seem to do the job and have no concerns

                                                  Works as intended. Hard to compain too much about a pole.

                                                  Basket is smallish for deep powder, maybe.. but we dont get much of that in the East anyway.

                                                  Great pole at the discounted price. At the discount can't find a cheaper pole and this one is better quality than most in the same price range.
