I received mine, about a week late due to weather. The handle is not quite like the picture; a little disappointing as it appears to be an older model of the one pictured. Is this possibly why the description does not fit the product? BTW, The bottom section on my pair is aluminum.
Anyone else’s stuff just sitting in Indianapolis?
The description refers to "carbon-fiber Titanal" but those are 2 different things unless it's a composite laminate. Titanal is an aluminum alloy. I have seen 1 review of these poles that stated the bottom section is aluminum, which I've heard of before and sounds like a good idea. Wondering if anyone can confirm in case I get another chance to buy...?
(Edited)
it is similar but not exactly the same as it has some different features.
Can these be used for skiing?

Yes. It is primarily a hiking pole but if you switch to a larger powder basket you have a great backcountry/split-boarding pole as it packs up small.
I spoke with a Komperdell person. It is possible that this pole set is the same as the one REI sells as their Flash Carbon Trekking Poles. Backpacking Light speaks highly of the REI model.
These look really good. Too bad I just bought a pair of nice Leki poles!
Massdrop; "To start, each pole is constructed from lightweight carbon-fiber Titanal and weighs just 16 ounces." "Weight per pole: 15.9 oz (450 g)" The 15.9 oz weight is per pair, according to all of the other sites selling these. no longer listed on Komperdell web site.

Thanks for that, I was just thinking these were incredibly heavy poles

They would be incredibly heavy at that weight. I have some old, heavy-duty aluminum Leki poles with shock absorbers and they aren't a pound each.
Is this the same, or similar poles as the REI Co-op Flash Carbon Trekking Poles?
Weight per pole: 15.9 oz (450 g) - Pretty sure that is the weight of both. Either that or this is some THICK CF.
If these had a cork grip I'd be in
