Safe Poles / ski poles

Safe Poles
Safe Poles

Pin part: Pins of original ski poles are dangerous due to its sharpness. So we have designed more safe design; coming in and out when they are in use or not. This pins are usually hided in the pole when they are not in use, and come out when they touch the ground surface./

Basket part: Main purpose of the basket part in poles is to maintain the user's center of gravity on the surface of slippery surface. We applied shape and mechanism of the snowshoes in order to safe. 3new basket parts divided by 120 degree with are designed to maintain the users' center of gravity at certain area, which is slippery slope of the snowy mountain.
