What's more exhilarating: riding some serious backcountry pow, magnificently navigating trees and rocks and reaching the bottom feeling like a million bucks — or pushing off a fallen tree, only to have your pole collapse and send you toppling? Mm-hmm.
Adjustable ski poles allow the greatest versatility for backcountry skiers, but they need to be reliable. Really reliable. Leki's Backcountry Ultralite poles excel at providing smart functionality while keeping you safe. Equipped with the SpeedLock system, the Backcountry Ultralite can easily shorten for assistance hiking up the mountain, and a release of the lever allows you to extend the pole for skiing support on the downhill. The SpeedLock is fast, simple, resists stretching, and gives a vice-like grip — keeping your poles from collapsing when you need them most. The easily accessible Speed Dial can be adjusted to provide more locking power in extreme conditions. And when you need a temporary adjustment, the Aergon soft grip runs down the shaft for a good hold on your poles without stopping to change lengths.
