Karhu XCD Pole
Here's what other sites are saying:
Head into the backcountry with your go-anywhere XCD skis, but make sure you carry Karhu's XCD poles that are tough enough for the rigors of off-trail fun as they are light for time amongst the skate skiers. Hang onto the lightweight, yet strong, 7000 series aluminum poles with soft cork grips and durable alpine-style baskets while you swoosh along with ease thanks to padded biathlon loops that don't let your poles wander off if you let go of them.
