Our split poles were created for customers who need to fit their poles in a sled during transport. They add about six ounces of weight compared to the full-length poles and add to the complexity of your system in addition to the extra cost. We generally recommend full-length poles unless you need to be able to fit your poles in your sled to transport in a plane, etc. Split poles use a stainless steel mid-pole coupler that is as durable as our full-length poles. Includes our Channel Kit hardware for attaching to your own sled.
The poles have both a ball-joint end and an eye-bolt end, except when purchased with our Fatbike line or Expedition pulk, in which case we switch out the eye-bolt end with another ball joint.
- The poles are just over 6 feet long. When collapsed, the longest end is around 45 inches long.
- The pole set weighs about 2lbs 12oz (the included Channel Kit weighs another 8oz)
- Made of 1/2″ fiberglass rods coated with a protective finish
- The aluminum couplers (pole ends) are specially machined for SkiPulk.com. One end is 3/8″ fine thread for the tie rod/ball joint. The other end is 5/16″ standard/coarse thread for the eye bolt.
Please note that we make these poles by hand and they often get scuffed and scratched during the process (or during shipping) but this does not affect their functionality.
(Note: all our poles can fit several other sleds. See this guide for details.)
