    I wish all the ski companies would stop with this silliness. OK, you sponsor many top athletes, we get it. But do you really think these same athletes would not have won had then been using One Way, Leki, Excel or some other pole? Enough already.

    It is silly. But I imagine faster skier has to pay the bills somehow.

    I don’t fault FasterSkier at all for publishing these press releases. It pays the bills and allows for the exceptional coverage they provide.

    I hear you on that RonBott. Elite skiers are going to use whatever product gives them the most money.

    I agree RonBott. These industry statistics articles are lame (but I understand that FS has to pay the bills). Of the 51 medals won on Swix poles, how many were won by skiers that were paid to use Swix? 51 I would bet. A better gauge of a pole’s success would be from races where most skiers buy their own gear.

    Forget poles. I want to know what underwear brand won the most medals at WC’s.

    The sponsor silliness that bothers me most is the atletes dragging the show-only skis and poles around everywhere they go. We know you ski and pole brands, thank you.
    Especially I detest when they cross the line and are holding the show skis before they’ve clipped out of the ones that actually did the work.

    On these Triacs though, I feel ambivalent about them. I need/want to buy new skating poles, and to better my Carbonlites, will take some. I am wishing to make the move to trigger grips, and will not foresake any stiffness or lightweight. Triacs seem to be what to get, however the grips/straps seem to be what you’d expecct on $70 carbon poles. So understated, and non-trigger. Flexing the pole son the shop floor though, they’re very impressive, and light as any other pole in a shorter length. €350 is just so steep for a pair of poles, considering this buys you Fisher Carbonlite skis which seem a lot harder to manufacture, let alone design.
