How do I choose the right size cross-country ski pole?
ZRE hand-makes each Infinity ski pole to the length you specify.
To find your correct size and get an accurate measurement, you’ll need:
- a helper
- an ordinary ruler
- a measuring tape marked in centimeters
Take all measurements with your ski boots on, and while standing on a level surface.
If you’re standing on your skis too, the pole tip measurement should be to the top of the ski surface, not the floor.
How To Measure for Skate Skiing Poles
Use a ruler to measure from ground level to a point at mustache level. The distance in centimeters is your correct pole length.
How to Measure for Classic Poles
- To measure stand up straight while holding a ruler on your shoulder parallel to the ground.
- Have a friend measure from the ground up to the ruler.
- The distance in centimeters is your correct pole length.
Alternate method to measure poles for classic / diagonal stride:
Measure from ground level to a point at mustache level (as in skate poles) and subtract 10 centimeters.
After You Have Measured…
Write this Number down.
You can input this measurement when you order. Both poles will be made the same length unless you specifically request different lengths.Order Infinity Ski Poles
But I would rather cut and assemble my own ski poles …
No problem! Just order the length of pole that you need.
To measure and assemble, read “How To Custom Size My Ski Poles.”
This page will explain how to measure, cut, and assemble your ski poles.
