Complete your performance ski package with the lightweight Rossignol X650 cross-country ski poles.
The Rossignol X 650 is a lightweight 30% HS carbon performance pole.
There's only one explanation for the graphite used in the shaft of the X650 Ski Pole: more power. Race or train with this pole in hand and feel the difference of crisp, powerful pole plants. Because the X650 is part of Rossignol's line of high-performance Nordic ski poles, it also benefits from a race-style wrist strap and oversized basket.
