Cross-Country Ski Poles Size Chart
Cross-country ski poles should have the right length so that you can transfer your power optimally. To ensure that the poles also fit to the corresponding cross-country skiing technique, there are special guidelines for classic, skating and Nordic cruising poles. In the table below you can find the right length of your cross-country ski poles. However, in addition to this table, there are other rules of thumb for the correct length.
The classic pole should end at the top of the shoulder. Beginners also tend to prefer slightly shorter poles, as these require less strength.
The skating pole should reach a maximum of the tip of the nose, but at least up to the chin. Again, beginners tend to use slightly shorter poles.
In addition to these rules of thumb, you can find your appropriate pole length in the table.
