Here's what other sites are saying:
Strap on your skinny skis, and use the Alpina XT Cross Country Ski Pole to propel you into the snowy wild. Grasp its comfy foam grip and push off the untouched pow with its girthy baskets. It's lightweight for energy-conserving poling and made of uberstrong aluminum for enduring strength and stiffness. A wide strap micro-adjusts around your hand and wrist to keep them in proper, economic position and prevents backtracking for a dropped pole. When the snow firms up, its carbide tip will save the day.
