I bought these poles as I perform a lot of slalom downhill skiing and carving. The grip is ergonomic and feels sturdy. It holds well and effortlessly. The poles feel durable and light weight at the same time. Because they are light weight, they do not hinder or interfere with the skiing making one's descent aerodynamic and fluid.
The design is also practical in that the poles 'snap' together at the base as a means of staying together, as one solid shape when not using them. Aesthetically, they look good. Excellent poles for the intermediate to the advanced skier.

Get's the job done

You get what you pay for with these poles. They aren't terrible but they aren't the most amazing either. For the most part, I have no complaints except that the baskets come off...Read complete review

You get what you pay for with these poles. They aren't terrible but they aren't the most amazing either. For the most part, I have no complaints except that the baskets come off really easily. Day 1 using these poles and one popped right off. It has stayed on since then though...
Also, you can't really tell in the pictures but the finish is actually matte, which looks pretty sweet.

        As far as cheap poles go, these do the trick. Haven't had any problems with baskets falling off or issues with bending. The only thing I'd want different are the wrist straps, but relatively negligible.

          Good for pretty much anything. Lightweight and sturdy at the same time, just a solid pole for any occasion and suitable for pretty much anything you'd need it for. I was able to use them well even with my middle finger in a splint, so they're really no hassle at all.

                Nice looking pole, but too many negatives. One basket fell off the second use--lost forever. The strap doesn't lock into the plastic clip, so slips out easily. Bent easily in a fall, but did respond to standard straightening efforts. Overall pretty poor performance.

                            Good durable pole. Straps are difficult to get gloved hand through.

                              Use the ski poles for alpine ski'ing in the sierras. The pole plants very well into most kinds of snow and offers good support and strength. The grip could be a bit better but for the price they are great poles.

                                Poles are poles in my view, nothing fancy or special about these poles there Something to have to help balance out but rarely ever used right. But for the price this is a good pair to have with you. Well built and do the trick at a good price.

                                These poles look and feel real good however one bent badly on my first wipe out. I only got 1 day out of them :(

                                I'd stick with composite for a few bucks more.

                                    Can't beat the price. Lightweight, work fine to moving around the slopes and lift lines. They're also pretty cool looking. Overall can't complain.

                                      Inexpensive, versatile pole that comes with the sort of quality I've come to expect from Salomon. They are light and durable. If I had one complaint, it would be that Salomon doesn't sell separate powder baskets for them. You can't go wrong with these if you're looking for high quality at an affordable price.
