Q. Which finish to choose with your X-Pole?

Chrome: Chrome poles are great for those who want to perform all types of tricks on their pole as it is very hard wearing. This is a good middle of the road metal that works with most skin types and climates. A perfect pole for beginners.
Stainless Steel – An alternative to Chrome as not only is it very hard wearing its also good for polers with nickel allergies this pole is ideal for studios and gyms.
Brass: This is great for hotter climates as brass is porous and works well for those with sweaty hands.
Titanium Coated: This has the features of a chrome pole with enhanced grip benefits.
Powder Coat (Black, Pink & White) – Useful for people who struggle to grip standard metal poles. Very high grip factor! Steel poles are powder coated and baked to seal the finish perfect for those who want to save costs on purchasing grip solutions.
Silicone (Black & Pink) – The quintessential easy grip pole! Very minimal skin to pole contact is required. Steel poles have a Non-removable silicone sleeve glued to the surface of the pole.
