Product description

  • New belt lock
  • New adjustment around the wrist (one-hand grip)
  • Security leash attachment
  • Solid loose snow basket in Hypalon and PA6
  • Aluminium construction
Choosing the right length

Ski poles for back country use will usually have to be approximately 35-40cm shorter than your own height, as a thumb of rule. Another way to measure, is to pick a pole that is around length from your armpit to the ground or 5cm shorter whilst standing upright.

Skill, experience, use and personal preferences will also influence your choice of length. But be sure to not choose your poles too long, as that hinders blood circulation in the arms, makes it uncomfortable and gives you cold fingers while skiing in cold weather. All in all, it is about personal preferences.

Weight: 450 g (per pair, 145cm)
Material: alloy 7075
Use: mountain and expeditions
Basket material: hypalon and pa6

High-quality wilderness poles. Sits in hand and adjustable good. One point off a little small somm.

Good basic rod. A little too small a somp sometimes dips the rod into the snow

Rod good, sompa unnecessarily small in soft deep snow.

The rods have an expedition-like handle that was a bit questionable, but worked well. The strap of the rods is good as long as it can only be threaded into the correct position. This caused some annoyance. The spike of the rod is too dull and too short. Sompa is small, but worked well with the spring hang. The assumption is that the aluminum rod will last. The late Exel Arctic is a benchmark, not the same as this rod.

I found the pole as simple and durable as possible, but light enough for long cross-country skiing hikes. Åsnes meets all requirements and the structure is sufficiently rigid without being heavy. Plus easy and quick strap adjustment and a long grip area. The sompa is suitable flexibly and more than, for example, the sompa on the fabric straps in the corresponding model of Start. This makes it especially easy when the steep hard snow surface rises in the fell. A small minus is that the attachment of the somma is not universal in my opinion, so for a long trip it is worth ordering Åsnes' own spare one in advance. 4.5 stars rounded to five.

I used two of these poles in Greenland and the tip broke off one of them! Don't know how but I ordered another pair from Varuste.net, (not the supplier of the original pair I had). The whole transaction was so easy. Excellent communication from Varuste.net by e-mail, easy tracking of my parcel from a link in their e-mail and the poles arrived quickly from Finland to the UK, well packaged. Excellent service, I would be very confident about buying other equipment from Varuste.Net. :o)

The 103 mm sompa is too small. In February 2021, get the fog down to the ground and the rod sank deep. Norwegians should design a more decent accessory. The short and dull rod spike slips on the ice, this I fixed by chamfering the tip. If these shortcomings were remedied, I would even take the rods to a dead end project and give almost five stars.
