The K2 Women's 5 Karat Ski Pole is the pole of choice for women seeking the best combination of style, performance and value. Featuring a smaller Alliance-designed rubber overmolded chrome grip and T:Nine inspired graphic, this pole performs as well as it looks. Flex and durability comes from the Exo 10 Carbon Composite Technology.
Developed exclusively by K2, Exo Technology is the controlled process of mechanically stringing carbonfiber strands around the outermost circumference of the pole shaft. Adding carbon fiber in separate layers, rather than in a fiberglass mix, allows for a higher ratio of carbon fiber to glass, translating into the best strength-to-weight balance possible. Constructed with 10 strings of carbon mechanically applied to the length of shaft provide the lightweight benefits of carbon fiber with durability previously found only in aluminum poles. High strength, lightweight and a great value.
