Weighing in at an unbelievable 540 grams per pair - or about half of traditional alloy poles – the Pure Carbon Classic is the best-selling carbon fiber pole of all time.
Whether you are looking to lighten your load for your skin up your favorite backcountry stash, don’t want to swing a lot of extra weight all day on the slopes or are looking for a nearly indestructible pole, the Pure Carbon Classic is for you.
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.

I have had a pair of Goode ski poles for around 20 years. Other than replacing baskets and a few nicks they are still great. I bought them because every time I fell in the bumps my aluminum poles got bent. I have the equipment straighten but you I have had a pair of Goode ski poles for around 20 years. Other than replacing baskets and a few nicks they are still great. I bought them because every time I fell in the bumps my aluminum poles got bent. I have the equipment straighten but you can imagine what they looked like at the end of the year. Last week I fell on a fairly flat spot and used both poles held together to get back up. No problem, but as you know they are quite flexible. Since they've been bending at least that much for 20+ years it got me to wondering how far you can bend them before they snap? It got me to thinking that maybe you folks should start making Bows and Arrows.

These poles are outstanding. They are very light and strong, yet they absorb impacts. I really notice the light swing weight when doing fast, short turns or skiing moguls. They really pay off in those situations. The grips are great - they fit my hands well and the rubberized material is very grippy.
Two things kept me from rating these poles with 5 stars. The stitching on the straps - where they are sewn together below the metal clips is giving out after only two days of skiing. It was easily fixed - I sewed them myself, but I should have had to.
The other thing - and this is minor - it would help if there was some sort of instruction on how the adjustable height system worked. It took me a while to figure it out. Once I did, I found it simple and effective.
Other than those two things - these poles are the best I've ever used - and they can actually improve your skiing, especially if you are a classic form skier that uses poles the way they were intended.

Just received my 2nd pair of Classic Pure Carbon; my others were missing & mysteriously showed up. My new ones will be used for my personal skiing, the older pair for instructing.
