Splitboard Poles 101

Collapsible poles are the four-wheel drive of your backcountry ascent gear. They keep you from slipping and sliding as you shuffle up the skintrack and give you balance in the bootpack. For best pole performance it’s important to set your poles to the proper length for your height. Check the pole length to height chart below for a sizing guideline. For easy and secure size adjustment also make sure the Powerlocks are set to the proper tension using the instructions below.
