Our next stop at the SIA Snow Show was at Swix USA, where we got a look at new features on next year’s carbon-composite poles, new formulations in Swix’s klister line, and tried on their new gloves.

    Is that basket “system” as light as a glued on basket of the same size?

    Good Question,

    With no glue requirements to hold the basket on the system is about 9 grams per pair less then a glued system. This is more significant then it would seem because it is weight reduction in the critical tip area of the pole where the greatest swing weight improvements are noticed.
