D2Z Ergo Poles – Hi and Low Rise

From: £195.00


Used in conjunction with a system that tilts the pole clamp (whether with our system or a bike with a tilting mechanism), these ergonomic carbon fibre poles will reduce/remove any space between arm and pole for improved aerodynamics. They also provide support to the forearm while riding which will allow you to be more relaxed and comfortable on the bike. They are supplied untrimmed and with a set of pre cut foam for additional comfort.  You can order more pole foam if you require extra sets.

The ski pole has the industry standard 22mm cylindrical diameter at the clamp end, and our popular elliptical shape at the grip end. This means that they can be fitted to any standard clamp. There are two ski poles available:

    • the longer and higher ‘Hi Rise’ pole, aimed at non-UCI positions, this pole has an angle of 25 degrees meaning that with the use of angled shims of 10-20 degrees, you can achieve an effective angle of 35-45 degrees; and
    • the ‘Low Rise’ for UCI riders who need to limit the bar end height and length (non UCI riders also use the Low Rise if looking for a lower position). This has an angle of 15 degrees and again the angle can be increased with the angled shims – we are finding this pole seems to work best with a clamp/pad angle of 10 degrees.  Please note that whilst UCI legal set ups can be achieved with our components, you as the rider are responsible for ensuring compliance.

See the description box below for more information.

Pole end caps are also available to add to your purchase.  These may not be necessary if you are also purchasing our pole clamps with your set up as these have a fairing that hides the cable as it exits the back of the pole. See the photos in the gallery.

Our USP System is compatible with many bikes, including Scott Plasma, Giant Trinity, Ribble Ultra TT, Shiv TT (2020 onwards).  For information on compatibility please see the Compatibility DocumentFor specific information about the Giant Trinity please see here.

We have developed solutions specific to some mono podium bikes such as the Trek Speed Concept, Cervelo Aduro bar, Specialized Shiv TT (pre 2020), Specilaized Tri Disc, Factor Slick and Canyon Speedmax.  For more information please contact us info@drag2zero.com.

Hi and Low Rise Poles

Traditional angled poles control hand height by changing the bend in the pole. Increasing the angle in this way achieves the desired height but is usually not optimal for hand angle – pole and hand angle being different things. It varies from rider to rider but usually a grip angle of 35-50 degrees is optimal for ergonomics. With our classic poles we developed different angled grips to change the grip angle to be more ergonomic resulting in an s bend.

The new Hi and Low rise poles have different pole angles but the same grip angles so both are ergonomically optimised.

  Pole angle (without angled shim) Grip angle (without angled shim)
HI Rise Pole 25 33
Low Rise Pole 15 33

Pole End Grips

For improved ergonomics and aerodynamics, our ski poles have an elliptical end section. To turn this elliptical shape into a circle to accommodate your shifter, we supply a range of grips or a plug for track. You cannot insert your shifter into the end of the pole without a grip.

For the ultimate comfort, ergonomics and aerodynamics, we recommend the Ergo Grip.  Manufactured from a semi soft plastic material, it only works with the small electronic shift buttons from SRAM and Shimano. This provides a very neutral hand grip which encourages the rider to relax their wrist and hand promoting a slightly curved shape to the top of the hand (similar to the S-bend adapter offered on our standard ski pole). This grip is usually not suitable for UCI applications (see the D2Z End Grip Technical Document for more information).

Straight end grips offer the most cost effective solution and means to attach any shifter to the elliptical ski pole. For UCI applications where reach restrictions make it difficult for the rider to stretch out, we offer short grips for SRAM and Shimano button shifters to give the most scope for maximising the space for the rider. Solutions are also offered for mechanical shifting. Please see the D2Z End Grip Technical Document for more information on which to order. All grips are shown in the photo gallery.

See here for installation instructions for grip using a Shimano Double button shifter.

The grips supplied are those here. Some of the photos in the gallery show the original style of grips which are no longer available.

Complete your set up

For the ultimate in aero efficiency and comfort we recommend these poles are used with a tilting system that will tilt the pole and arm rests together. Our D2Z Under Arm Ski Pole system aims to offer you a custom solution with off the shelf parts. We supply a pole clamp, arm rests, angled shim and risers to achieve this. Read more information on the D2Z UnderArm Ski Pole System.

We have teamed up with 76 Projects to supply computer mounts specific to the contour of our poles.  See the Mounts page for more information
