Dead simple concept by a company born in the Australian Alps that is trying to fund their project on Kickstarter. The inspiration came from an old photograph of a walking pole that neatly split into two walking poles and they were off and running. EXPLORE KICKSTARTER PROJECT HERE.
“Our inspiration. These are the images that sparked the idea to connect ski poles.”
Here’s now Kozki describes their product:
“Our Ski Poles connect at the baskets and grips. The fully integrated connection points mean there are no separate parts to manage. The poles can be carried and stored as one item.
The grip is specially designed with an easy-fit wrist strap. We repositioned the wrist strap anchor point and added a flexible plastic tongue. These features hold the wrist strap open to fit easily over gloves or mittens.
Connecting KOZSKI Ski Poles is as easy as aligning one basket over the other and applying slight downward pressure on one of the grips. Reverse these actions to separate the poles… “
“KOZSKI is the collaboration of three people, Kent, Jenny and Marc who love skiing and design. We’ve always had a passion for converting ideas to reality and started in a home workshop making backcountry skis for our own use in the Australian Alps. We called it the KOZSKI project.
Along the way, Kent saw a photograph of an old wooden walking pole that could be split into separate poles. Those images lead to the question: why do we strap skis together but not poles?…”
