Recommended Cross Country Ski Pole Lengths

A simple rule to follow is that poles for classic should be 35 cm shorter than your body length and for skating 25 cm shorter than your body length.

If you are between two lengths, we recommend that you choose the shortest option.

    FAQ

      Which length of ski poles should I use for cross-country skiing?

      SWIX’s length recommendations for ski poles can be found in this table.

      The table shows your recommended length for cross-country ski poles and roller ski poles for adults and children/juniors.

      Which ski poles should I choose for beginners, training or racing?

      The key questions are: At what level and how often do you ski?

      It depends on the stiffness of the ski pole and what the pole is to be used for. Here are some examples:

      What are ski poles made of?

      Ski poles can be made of aluminum, fiberglass and carbon composite.

      Aluminum withstands the most impacts, while carbon is light and stiff.

      Glass fiber is a middle ground, which is not as light and stiff as carbon but can withstand more impact.

      How do I choose the right strap and handle for ski poles?

      If you want a simple and durable handle, choose one with as much plastic/rubber as possible. Clean cork handles are warmer and more comfortable, but don't last as long as plastic/rubber handles. Find Swix handles here.

      The strap is selected according to how easy and fast you need to get out of it. A hand strap provides better support, force and function than a single strap, but is slower and harder to pull on and off. Find Swix pole straps here.

      How to find the right straps and handles.

      How to change ferrules on ski poles?

      There are four different attachment systems for Swix baskets:

      1. TBS-system, which are screwed on by hand.
      2. The Sonic system on which the ferrule is glued, but the basket can be screwed on or off.
      3. Studs that are glued on with a basket that is pressed on.
      4. Ferrule with fixed basket, which is glued on.


      The TBS system is the easiest to use. Then you can easily replace the basket by loosening it by hand. To use these ferrules, you must have a ski pole that supports the TBS system. For example: Quantum Q1 pole

      To change ferrules that are glued on (e.g. Infinity Basic Alu Pole ) you must heat the ferrule with e.g. boiling water, pull it off, glue with a glue gun and press on the new ferrule while the glue is liquid/warm.

      Which basket should I choose?

      It may be a good idea to select the basket according to the tracks and conditions. For example:
      Larger basket for loose trail --> Basket Triac Large

      Smaller basket for firm trail --> Basket Triac XSmall

      What does it take to break the ski pole?

      That depends on the pole. Our ski poles have different materials that can withstand different loads.

      Our best pole, Triac Aero 4.0, is very light and extremely stiff. These poles can be more easily kinked than poles made of aluminum, which are not as rigid. E.g. Infinity Sonic Alu pole.

      For maximum performance and best results, you need rigid poles. If this is not important, it may be better to choose poles that are not as rigid but are more robust.

      What is the difference between Triac, Quantum and Dynamic?

      Triac Aero 4.0 is our top model, while Quantum Q1 and Q2 are a less expensive alternative to racing.

      Dynamic D1, D2 and D3 are good poles for hiking and training. These are heavier and softer, but in return they can withstand more and are less expensive.

      How can I cut ski poles?

      You always cut from the top, where the tube is just as thick all the way. To cut the pole, you must be able to remove the handle.

      First, heat the handle with boiling water or a heat gun. Be careful not to loosen or burn any cork or rubber. We recommend that you lose any part that can become detached or burnt if you are using boiling water or a heat gun.

      Pull off the handle.

      Measure where to cut. Cut with a tube cutter or fine hacksaw. Mark the pole where you are going to cut with tape, for example.

      Glue the top of the tube with a glue gun.

      Put on the handle while the glue is hot and liquid. Remember to put it in the right direction and press it down firmly.
