About GOODE ski poles
Our patented pole design features thin "pencil" shafts for better balance and feel. Pure carbon composite poles are about 30-percent lighter and up to six times stronger than aluminum alloy poles, don't bend, are more durable, and have excellent feel and balance. Our poles are smaller in diameter, only 10.4 mm vs. up to 18 mm and most shafts are the same diameter at the top and bottom.
Our firm, flexible shafts take advantage of the natural shock absorption properties of carbon. Lightweight, firm performance, but less "kick back" for better balance, and they're easier on hands, wrists, elbow and shoulders.
And we're not just lightweight in the store, but we get even more lightweight during a long day on the slopes when compared to larger diameter poles that have more wind drag. Wind drag equals exponentially more weight the faster you ski. Lightweight poles simply perform better than heavy ones.

The "fake" bamboo is really fun. The poles work great of course, but the retro feeling with the high tech materials is really a cool blend of "eras".

I have always admired the classic look of bamboo ski poles. A few of my friends actually have them and always complain how heavy they are. They leave them home most of the time. Now I am the envy of my ski group, I have the look of a bamboo pole, but they perform like composite ski poles. I am not sure how they did the composite bamboo, but they I love them!
