Best Performance Pole
Goode G Carbon

In an industry where “carbon” almost exclusively translates to “unaffordable”, the Goode G Carbon is a lightweight marvel in the same price range as our top-end aluminum models. This might be explained by the width sitting at just over 10mm in their signature “pencil” shaft design.

While this may leave the G Carbon less capable of absorbing big blows than the rest of the pack, it’s hard to find anything that can touch it in terms of weight. Coupled with a high degree of flexibility and shape retention inherent in carbon, and you have a performance pole suitable for any precision skier.

Goode builds its ski poles with proficient skiers in mind. They try to combine low weight and aerodynamic shaft design to make a pole that delivers accurate plants with as little effort as possible and do so at a reasonable price. Albeit, this comes at the behest of durability.
