Freeride ski pole

Snapping a ski pole during an epic day is downright frustrating—and, inevitably, a huge waste of time. Level’s new Freeride ski pole ($80) aims to keep you on the hill and out of the shop.

In addition, the Freeride takes a new tack on adjustable ski poles: The soft plastic grip has two height positions, which comes in handy in the backcountry.
