Freeride Poles by Gabel for Your Snow Adventures
Freeride poles are used for all off-piste activities on fresh snow. With Gabel freeride poles, you can experience a new adventure with confidence. Gabel-branded pole technologies and locking systems ensure quality and stability during skiing. The materials and their combinations offer lightweight freeride poles with excellent impact resistance.
Freeride Ski Poles and Cutting-Edge Locking Systems
Most freeride ski poles from Gabel collections feature the Multi Lock, consisting of a double locking system. In Multi Lock, Mono Lock and T.P.L. technologies ensure a stable and perfect pole even in low temperatures.
Mono Lock, which constitutes the external system, is based on the principle of an adjustable tension clamp. The evolution of this closure system has increased its clamping capacity by 20%. The minimal design and ergonomic shape allow for easy opening and closing of Mono Lock even while wearing gloves. The internal locking system is T.P.L. (Top Performance Locking), which utilizes the extension of 2 shells inside the pole to create friction points that amplify the locking.
Freeride Poles with Wired Technology
Freeride poles with Wired technology can be folded and reduced in size. Wired technology is activated through a simple button, which releases the tension of the plastic-coated steel cable passing through the pole sections. Thanks to this technology, it is possible to have compact, lightweight, and easily transportable freeride poles.
Freeride Ski Poles in Carbon, Snake Carbon, and Kevlar
In addition to technologies, what makes Gabel freeride poles unique is the materials used. In addition to carbon and aluminum, materials such as Snake Carbon and Kevlar are also employed.
Snake Carbon is the evolution of carbon into a material that is 20% lighter and 18% stronger. The crystallization technology to which carbon is subjected results in its union with a particular geometric structure. In addition to acquiring a "snake skin" appearance, the strength of carbon is thus amplified. Snake Carbon elevates freeride ski poles to a higher level compared to many others on the market.
Mountainous contexts characterized by low temperatures and specific terrain conditions have led skiers and hikers to need particularly durable poles. For this reason, some models of Gabel freeride poles feature a Kevlar coating. Stronger than steel, this synthetic aramid fiber is used to increase the stiffness of the pole, making it capable of withstanding impacts and lower temperatures.
