Replacing the ski pole grips gives you the feel of a brand new handle
Maybe blisters start to appear; the handles get sticky, or perhaps the coating has started to come off? There comes a time, when ski pole grips are worn out. If you own a quality set of ski poles, it might make sense to replace the handles opposed to throwing them out and buying new once. In fact - if your poles have replaceable ski pole grips we always recommend, that you use this opportunity.
Cork is a popular material for ski pole handles, since it is a very soft and light material but at the same time very durable. Some ski pole handles are manufactured in soft foam which is preferred by some skiers since they find them more comfortable, but these handles usually have a shorter lifespan than the ski pole grips that are designed in cork.
In this category, you’ll also find our selection in different types of straps for cross country and roller ski poles. The right strap will give you the ability to push harder on the pole without needing to hold the pole as tight in your hand. A strap will also prevent you from dropping the poles on the ground, which can be very annoying especially if you are going downhill.
Most straps come with a good amount of padding making it more comfortable for the skier - a thing that is much appreciated when you’re spending hours and days out cross country skiing.
