Scott World Cup Strike Ski Poles: The Scott World Cup Strike is an excellent pole for the racer looking for a low profile and durability. Scott's Notch Grip fits very ergonomically in your hands when you are ready to push out through the start house. The Ice Tip can punch through the firmest of race courses. The Strike RC Strap has a low profile that can wrap your wrist and not get hung up on gates. The S4 Aluminum Shaft is the strongest aluminum available, so you know it's good.
