  • In announcing its 2011 Editors� Choice awards, Backpacker magazine extolled, �Get a grip on the best carbon poles we�ve ever tested�
  • Innovative folding Z-Pole system offers simple, compact and reliable support with a concealed inner cord, single push-button release and speed cone deployment
  • A quick pull on the grip and the first pole section snaps and locks the 3 pole sections into place; flexible tube ends protect the Kevlar® center cord when folded
  • Easily replace and solidly secure pole tips with WaveLock™ tip connections
  • Right- and left-hand-specific straps are light, breathable and moisture-wicking; they feature breathable cut-out windows and easy rip-and-stick adjustability
  • Inspired by snow probes, speed cones at the end of each pole section ensure strength, stability and super-fast deployment; each speed cone guides a pole section into place
  • Light, non-slip EVA foam grips feature foam extensions that allow poles to be held low during short side hill traverses
  • 100% carbon fiber shafts offer ultralight perfomance
  • Pole baskets feature shaft catchers to secure pole sections when folded; note: baskets are fixed in place and cannot be switched out for snow or powder baskets
