How to choose your pole length for skating?
The choice of pole is very important for cross-country skiing. If it is too short or too long you will have a lot of difficulty skiing properly.
For skating technique:
They should be large to maximize drive.
There are two ways of calculating the right size:
Length of skating poles = Skier's shoulder
Length of skating poles = Skier's height x 0.89
The length of the poles will also depend on the skier's physical attributes.
How to choose your pole length for classic skiing?
For classic technique:
Alternative (or classic) cross-country ski poles are slightly smaller.
Length of poles = Skier's armpit
Length of poles = Skier's height x 0.83
Once again, the length of the poles will also depend on the skier's physical attributes.
How to choose your pole?
Aluminum poles are solid, heavy and inexpensive - ideal for beginners. Fiberglass poles are more lightweight and fragile and should only be used on slopes.
Carbon fiber poles and those with other very lightweight materials are durable and stiff.
