SWIX Poles

IMPORTANT: NEW SIZING GUIDE FROM FW22/23

Starting in FW22/23 SWIX implements a new reference for measuring pole length.

One very important consequence of this change is that the length printed on the poles does not correspond to the same actual pole length as previous
poles from SWIX.


The difference between the old and the new length measurement systems is
illustrated in the figures below. The closest matching pole lengths according to the new length system compared to the old pole lengths are listed in the table below.


The change will affect almost all cross country poles. Look for the NEW LENGTH tag which indicates that the new pole lengths apply.


The two main reasons for changing the measurement system are:

1. The length printed on the pole will reflect effective pole length and be correct regardless of which Swix-handle is mounted on the pole.


2. The new measurement system is equal to the way poles are measured according to the regulations defined by the international ski federation (FIS)
