Roller ski poles - Soft or stiff?

In this category, you can find a great selection of roller ski poles with various degrees of stiffness. Usually, the more carbon the more stiffness, meaning greater force but less flexibility.

Roller ski poles come in various materials and weights, but basically the cheaper you buy, the softer the roller ski poles will be. This also means that the softer the roller ski poles are, the faster they will be worn. Softer roller ski poles are more flexible when hitting the ground, and are therefore more comfortable for beginners. Stiff roller ski poles can provide you with more force and higher speed, but can be tough to use for unexperienced roller skiers.

It is therefore important to consider the degree of stiffness when you buy roller ski poles.
