The composition of the stick

A Nordic baton is divided into 4 parts: the tube, the strap, the handle and the basket.

  • The Tube

Aluminium gives a strong and robust stick: these sticks are perfect for beginners or people looking for solidity and reliability.
Carbon fiberglass is lighter and softer than aluminum: these poles are suitable for beginners to advanced skiers who want a light and strong pole.
Carbon poles are very strong, rigid and light, they offer the best performance: these poles are suitable for competitors and people looking for performance.

  • The Strap

There are 2 types of straps, the "Ergonomic" straps and the "Biathlon" straps.
The " Ergonomic " strap is designed for people who do not need to remove the pole regularly.
A "Biathlon" strap will be for beginners or people who need to remove their poles often, such as in Back Country for example.

  • The Handle

Choose your grip according to your level of practice, knowing that:
- the "Natural Cork" is for competitors looking for lightness
- the "Natural Cork Grip" is for experienced skiers looking for a good weight/strength compromise.
- the "Rubber - Plastic Grip" will appeal to those looking for a strong and resistant handle.

  • The Basket

A different basket corresponds to each practice. The more you want to get off the slopes, the bigger your basket will have to be. For competition or sessions on hard and packed snow, prefer a small basket, whereas if you plan to go off the beaten track, choose a larger basket that will carry you off the powder trails.

What size for my practice?

Depending on the technique you wish to practice, i.e. skating or classical, the choice of your poles will not be the same.

  • Skating

In skating, the pole must stop above the skier's shoulder in order to have the longest possible thrust using both arms simultaneously, knowing that this corresponds to about 20 cm less than the person's height or the person's height multiplied by 0.89.

  • Classic

In classic, the stick must stop at the shoulder level knowing that this corresponds on average to 30cm less than the person's height or the person's height multiplied by 0.84.

  • Touring

In Touring, the stick must stop below the shoulder. Indeed, for this type of practice, the pole must be very easy to handle and must help the skier to balance on and off-piste. This corresponds on average to 35cm less than the skier's height or the skier's height multiplied by 0.78.

If you hesitate between 2 sizes, prefer a pole slightly smaller for a beginner skier and slightly more rand for an experienced skier.
