Get to Know Swix

In the 1940s, the Swedish founders of Swix were hard at work inventing and testing waxes to improve the performance of Nordic skis. From those humble origins, the brand expanded its scope and also began producing ski poles. That expertise in building poles translates well to supporting the needs of hikers, backpackers, and trail runners in all seasons and varying conditions. As you’d expect from a brand with such a wealth of backcountry experience, Swix poles feature ergonomic, high-performance grips and are available in a wide variety of fixed length, telescoping, and collapsible styles.
