Pole power.

Poles aren't the sexiest piece of your ski kit, but it's still a big bummer when they snap in the middle of run. Snapping Scott's RS-18 will take some serious doing, though, since it's made from aircraft-grade S4 aluminum. It also has an SRS Lite strap, which releases from the Notch Grip to save your shoulders and elbows in a tumble, and it features a biting Ice Tip that will grip on hard, icy snow without slipping.

Got these as a gift and the receiver loves these poles and has expressed how nice they are compared to an older pair they used before!
