The Story of Panda Poles
With their “Zero Drag Powder Baskets”, solid, light-weight, REAL bamboo poles, 100% recycled and hemp webbing, and super sticky grips, Panda Poles are great ski poles. But Panda Poles aren’t just bamboo ski poles. Panda Poles is a call out. It’s a call out on the conventional mindset that man made synthetics are always better. It’s a call out on the producers of not only ski goods, but all ‘goods’, to reconsider business as usual. It is a call out on the consumer to make better, more conscious decisions about what they consume, and why they ‘consume’ it. And Panda Poles is a Shout out to all the people who want to create the more enriching world they dream. It says “One need not think outside the box when one can think of the box as a sphere...or a Zero Drag Bamboo Ski Pole!”
Our bamboo is grown without pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers and because it is a grass, it does not die when it is cut. Its roots stabilize eroding soils and hold twice as much water in the water table. Bamboo produces 35% more oxygen than an equivalent stand of trees, and absorbs almost twice as much CO2. Our bamboo has a higher tensile strength than steel or aluminum, a greater compressive strength than most concrete, and better strength to weight ratio than graphite. And even with such strength and durability, it is still a 100% compostable product.
Panda Poles was founded in 2011 by Tanner Rosenthal after almost three years of dreaming and designing. Check out their full product line below!
