Many all-mountain skiers want the rigidity and super low weight of a pure carbon pole. This AMT Ultra SQS W is our top 5* Carbon pole for women. What makes it even more special is the addition of Atomic SQS, our safety quick release system. The crucial thing is that it instantly releases your strap under tension to prevent injuries. It then has a special cork injected grip that’s smaller and specially designed for female skiers, plus a padded strap, 60mm piste basket and carbide tip.
