Scott Riot 22 Ski Pole

Cause a riot.

Scott's Riot 22 Ski Pole disturbs the still, silent snowfall that backcountry skiers annoyingly romanticize about in their social media posts. It's Scott's burliest pole, so feel free to beat it against trees, smack it against slow signs, and harpoon it into deep pow without worrying about it snapping in two. The EG L Grip extends down the pole to help you overcome steep switchbacks, and the FX Riot Re-Entry Strap offers one-handed adjustment. Scott included a powder basket and carbon diamond tip so you can shred whatever snow's available.

Long and Strong

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Super stout ski poles with a ultra long grip. Best poles I've had for traversing and hiking.

Burly and Unique

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Took a couple days to get used to the fat grips. Hand tends to slide down when pole planting; will likely modify with a strip of duct tape in the middle of the grip. Seem super burly and look cool IMO. Powder baskets are great.

Solid Poles

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The MTB style lock on grips are perfect. The larger diameter shaft with thicker walled construction create a hard to break piece of gear. The straps were lame. I cut them off right away. The uniform diameter of grip and shaft facilitate effective probing. NO, not in a rescue scenario. In a "Im feeling the snow as I go so as to identify layers and general snowpack status" scenario. Big fat pow baskets are bitchin'. These poles are also way good for hitting things and people.
