The recommended length of alpine poles can be found by standing straight up and down. Your arms should be down your sides. Raise your forearm so that the angle in your elbow is 90°. Then measure the distance from the floor to your hand. This distance is the length you should have on your alpine poles.
You can also find the recommended length in the table below.
If you are between two lengths, we recommend that you take the shortest option.
