Poles. They're much more than just sticks with baskets. The Scott Zeo 13 Poles with the SRS (Strap Release System) is a perfect example. The pole has an improved feel and light swing weight thanks to the use of Carbon, and gives you the added safety of an SRS strap to boot. The SCOTT S.R.S (Strap Release System) is the next generation of safety technology in ski poles allowing the strap to release from the grip of the pole in the sketchy situations to prevent injury. The strap releases quickly when pulled sharply upwards and is seamlessly integrated into the pole for wearable comfort. The grip is also a nicely engineered little marvel, with the Notch Strike grip which has been ergonomically engineered using soft thermoplastic rubber and polypropylene for a lightweight, streamlined profile to facilitate correct, and necessary, wrist articulation. We regularly fit customers to poles and you'll find the light maneuverability of these poles feel terrific in your hand without putting undue stress on your wrists and forearms for hours of extra skiing without fatigue. Plant those poles even in the toughest surface, these come with an ice tip under those powder baskets, ready to take on the entire mountain and the conditions you find there. Plant confidently and tirelessly with a pole that has the right swing for your style, and the strap safety features you hope to never need, but will be glad for if you do.
