REC - Racing Equipment Corner: Exel is back!
New this season, Exel Poles has returned to the Nordic market with a new twist, or maybe it’s better to say a “new curve” on cross-country ski poles with their Exel X-Curve.
“The Exel X-Curve delivers close 20% more propulsion power with each push, enabling the skier to reach maximum speed faster and maintain maximum speed for longer”. - Exel Poles
The pole has been designed to increase power when double polling, improve skier biomechanics and muscle recruitment. Testing has shown a reduction in blood lactate levels during identical training efforts versus a traditional ski pole. For more information, visit exelpoles.fi.
