Swix Composite Shafts
The lightest shafts are made of 100% carbon fiber. The disadvantage of shafts made of extremely light composite materials is that they are easily damaged by ski edges and impact when hitting gates. For this reason it is not possible to make super lightweight shafts for alpine pole for competition. However for high level competition racing, we recommend the Swix IPM models such as Swix dHC, SgC and Mach. These shafts are special made for hitting gates and will withstand the extreme treatment from racing.
The best shaft for none competitive skiing is the Cobra. This lightweight shaft is of 100% carbonfiber and has the best pendulum in the Swix program.
Swix Add Tab
Almost all models in the Swix Program come with the patented Swix add Tab, an anti dropping device that prevents you from losing the grip during skiing. For a racer this could be crucial if loosen the grip for a few second trying to `catch` the grip again in a slalom competition.
Swix Saturn Dual-Purpose Basket System
This basket system offers two functions in one. On groomed trails use the piste basket, while for off-trail skiing simply attach the powder basket outside the piste basket. The switch is simple and easy.
