If you've heard of DPS, you probably know them for their highly acclaimed progressively-shaped carbon fiber skis. Building on that success, the ski company has ventured into the realm of ski poles with a bold offering. Their adjustable Nori Poles weigh a mere 255 grams each. By comparison, a Black Diamond's Traverse Pole weighs 295 grams and the difference is immediately noticeable. Their upper and lower shafts are made of Tital and carbon fiber, respectively, which creates a remarkable combination of stiffness and strength without compromise to weight.
