Alain poles are ultra versatile, for ski touring, steep skiing, freeride skiing, downhill skiing, walking, trail running, hiking, trekking, snowshoeing, etc.

They allow the hands to be always correctly positioned and regardless of the slope of the terrain, your size and your positioning habits, the line of the shoulders always remains horizontal. Your hands are never in contact with the tube for good thermal insulation, so no cooling. You have a good grip on the poles, no tension on too thin tubes. It only takes a few minutes of use to understand the principle, let your hands be placed naturally along the grip, and you will appreciate this impression of freedom, you will also discover many other advantages ...

Alain poles are used by many women and men who are mountain professionals: mountain guides, trackers, ski instructors, ENSA (National Ski and Mountaineering School) teachers, nivologues, and by many experienced amateurs around the world. The LBAs were used by Caroline Chaverot, vice-champion of France in trail running in 2013 and champion of France in long trail in 2014.

They are solid, light, well-balanced poles, they do not vibrate and make no noise, they allow powerful and safe support, especially when going downhill, precisely where you have to have confidence in your equipment, especially at the end of the very long trails where fatigue begins to be felt! or skiing on steep slopes where error is not allowed. Telescopic or foldable poles may shrink, bend or break, they are often not strong enough or much too flexible, and falling can have serious consequences!
