Cross Country Poles size chart

What you should take into consideration when buying new cross country poles

Cross-country ski poles must have the right length in order to provide optimized power transmission. This will make your skiing feel "easier". Each cross-country technique requires an own guideline. So make sure to choose the right length for classic, skating or backcountry poles.


Our recommendation table shows the correct length of your cross-country ski poles.

The classic pole should not extend beyond the shoulder for beginners. This means that the end of the pole should end at the top of the shoulder at the most.

The skating pole should reach as a maximum to the tip of the skier´s nose, but at least up to the chin. Again, beginners tend to use slightly shorter poles. In addition to these rough-and-ready rules, you can find the right pole length for you in the table.

The following formula applies to the pole length for roller skiing: Height (cm) x factor 0.9 + height of the roller skis (cm).
