There is no doubt that X Pole and Lupit Pole are two of the biggest names in the pole fitness industry. Both brands offer high-quality dancing poles that are designed to last. But which one is the best?
In this post, we’re going to pit the two brands against each other in a head-to-head battle to see who comes out on top. We’ll compare and contrast their products, features, prices, and many more factors to help you choose the one that fits your needs.
Without further ado, Let’s get started!
X Pole Vs Lupit Pole
The main difference between X Pole and Lupit Pole is that X Pole delivers the fastest, they are cheaper and their dancing poles are more stable, plus they offer more finishes. Lupit Pole on the other hand, offers the best customer service and their poles spin more smoothly and are more lightweight.
Before we take a look at these factors (and more) in greater detail, check out the reviews we did of the most popular poles of X Pole and Lupit Pole
Both X Pole and Lupit Pole offer excellent customer service. However, Lupit has a better reputation for offering superior customer service.
X Pole’s customer service used to be great but it has gone downhill a lot lately and I’ve seen a lot of complaints in the pole dancing community. The main reason behind this is probably the pandemic. There have been a lot of credit card misuse reports lately from people who purchased X pole products as well.
Lupit poles spin a lot better and smoother than X poles because lupit poles are made of higher quality materials and the coefficient of friction within is lower hence the dancer is going to spin longer before it starts to slow down.
This doesn’t mean X pole has a bad spin, it spins great but not as much as lupit and the dancer would have to kick a bit more to regain the momentum.
Weight And Stability
Most X-pole poles, especially the stage poles are a lot heavier than lupit poles. And they feel more stable than lupit poles because the podiums are larger and heavier.
Lupit poles are stable too but they feel kind of wobbly, and there have been numerous stories of lupit poles falling down but most of these are caused by wrong or loose installations not because the pole broke.

Quality and Durability
Both X Pole and Lupit Pole offer high-quality and durable dancing poles and stages. However, Lupit has a better reputation in the community for offering higher quality products. Their poles are made from high-quality materials and are backed by a team of experts.
X Pole poles are available in Brass, Stainless steel, Powder coated, Titanium, Silicone and Chrome finishes. Where titanium, silicone and stainless steel are the most expensive finishes while chrome is the cheapest.
Lupit Pole on the other hand offers only 3 finishes which are Chrome, Powder Coated and Stainless steel. It is worth noting that their latest chrome finishes are 100% Nickel free so are great for dancers with nickel allergies.
Here’s a great article by x pole explaining the pros and cons of each of these finishes.
Both X Pole and Lupit Pole offer competitive prices. However, Lupit Pole is generally a bit more expensive than X Pole but it’s a small difference.
Having said that, with the recent drop of the Euros value, some lupit poles might actually be cheaper now, especially their featured pole, the classic G2 compared to XPERT Pro. The stage poles however are still more expensive than X-pole stages.
If you live in the US, X Pole usually delivers faster than Lupit since X pole products are manufactured in the US while lupit poles are manufactured and delivered from Europe.
You can easily change (within a matter of minutes!) into static and spinning modes on both X pole and Lupit poles. X pole has their X-Lock technology while Lupit has the Quick Lock system, however some lupit models still require hex keys to switch modes.
Installation and Portability
Both of these brands offer poles that are super easy to install and take down. And they tend to be lightweight as well so you can carry them around with you, even the stage poles!
You can’t go wrong with either X Pole or Lupit Pole. Both offer excellent dancing poles that are strong, stable and will last a long time.
But what is the best?
Based on the factors we considered, Lupit Pole seems to be the best brand. They offer high-quality products at a competitive price, and they have an excellent reputation for great customer service.

Which X-Pole is best?
The X-Pole XPERT Pro is the best and most popular pole of X-Pole. This is the pole I have and I highly recommend it to both beginners and Pros for using at home.
Is Lupit Pole good?
Lupit poles are great! They are of higher quality and they have the smoothest spin. Plus, they are lightweight and their customer service is excellent.
