Ski pole grip replacement
In case your existing grip is worn out, has cracked, or you simply wish to change it for a new skiing season - you are invited to dig into our excellent selection of ski pole grip replacements.
There's plenty to choose from, and if you wish, you can check with us for possible colour availability before you place an order.
Trekking pole replacement grips
A relevant pole grip category is trekking pole grips, which are designed to sit nicely in the palm of your hand since their shape is more bulky and compact.
Grip replacements for trekking poles are made of soft and comfortable materials such as elastomer and soft cork (a mixture of natural cork and elastomer).
Grip straps for better hold
Every pole grip, except our thumb saving stapless grip for freeriders, needs a good grip strap to go along.
There are a few of them to choose from, so we divide them by purpose:
• straps for alpine, trekking and hiking grips
• straps for nordic walking
• XC straps for cross-country and roller skiing
Removing ski pole grips from the shaft depends on the material of the grip itself and whether it was glued on or not. The type of glue also dictates the removal method.
- Ski pole grips made of hard plastic are usually easily removed from the pole shaft simply by pulling them off. First check if the grip is also screwed on the shaft from the top and if it is, then remove the screw and see if the grip comes off. If not, dip the grip into warm (not boiling) water for approx. 2 min., so the grip warms up to the point where it can be pulled off. The shaft can be also put in a vice that is not tightened – just enough to hold the grip while pulling the shaft out with a twisting motion.
If hard plastic ski pole grip was glued onto the pole with hot melt glue, the glue will soften while warming up the grip, but if the two-component epoxy glue was used, which doesn't soften much with warmth, then the grip can be removed only with cutting it apart with a small saw.
- Ski pole grips made of soft elastomer (rubbery material) or soft cork should not be removed by warming them up. After removal of the screw from the top of the grip, put the shaft in a vice that is not completely tightened – just enough to hold the grip while pulling the shaft out with the twisting motion. In case the soft grip was glued onto the shaft and it can't be removed from the shaft nicely - there's no other way but to cut the grip apart with a Stanley knife or small saw.
Replacement of ski pole grips can be performed at home with basic workshop tools.
Most ski pole grips are mounted onto poles simply by being pushed onto the pole shaft from above with a thin layer of glue if needed.
