Skitourer with Traverse poles
Freerider on the descent
A daily driver for the dedicated backcountry skier, the completely redesigned Traverse poles are made from durable 16mm aluminum and have a dual-shot sticky rubber grip. These two-piece poles are easy to adjust with FlickLock technology. The head of the grip has a flat edge that can be used to scrape heavy snow from skis and a utility hook to adjust heel risers on the go, plus we’ve integrated a PH3 screwdriver in the shaft that fits most bindings and the FlickLock tension screw.
