    I'm sure their aren't many that use one, but I've used an elliptical bar for as long as I've been skiing the course.

    1.1, 1.092 is close enough.

    I’ve used 1.03 for years, but started rotating through 1.03, 1.09 and 1.125 diameter handles, changing almost every day, last year. Changing the diameter on a regular basis seemed to help elbow issues. Or maybe I just pull like a G1 skier now, which also helps elbows.

    After cycling through the above diameters (I have 3 of the 1.03 handles), I am pretty sure that the 1.06 would be perfect for me, as the 1.03 feels a little small now. I’d order one, but I have five perfectly good handles in adjacent diameters I feel I should wear out first.

    All of my handles are 13” bent.

    Actually I use a 0.97 bent from InTow
    Get high, get fast, and do some good work

    My US gear handles are cut to .960

    We are mostly guys who vote here, if you had women and children voting, options 1.00” and 0.094” would have been a lot higher.

    Personal preference is the .888" ones although I currently am using a .940" as this diameter has a price friendly option as they wear out in less than a year of use. I also like the elliptical bar, which seems a good simulation for a smaller diameter. Our group of skiers, 5 guys / 3 females all use .888 to .940 diameter handles. Also, use a radius handle which helps the elbow pain issue.

    @skialex not true, I use 1.062 and 1.125, I rotate, and I ski 4 sets a day most days😁

    I use a 1.092 13" bent and switch to a 1.00" also 13" bent sometimes for variation. I agree larger diameter seems to help with elbow pain issues. I am using glove liners now as i am just getting going -mid season I do not use them anymore.
