- 10in (25cm) of pole adjustability for long ascents and quick descents
- Adjustable release breakaway strap for safety

These poles are difficult to adjust and the locking mechanism does not stay tight, so you're constantly adjusting them. Also, they don't telescope down for boot packing steeps.
a bad pole for backcountry use.
i have had the red version of these for along time and used them for a few years until they let me down one too many times. thankfully my companions on an alaska glacier trip had an extra set of leki's or i would have been left without functioning poles. the locking mechanism failed. i had it fixed and it failed again and again. i have asked others about them and the universal opinion is that they suck.
how does sizeing work on these poles are...
how does sizeing work on these poles are the options in inches?
There are marked off sections in centimeters to guide you as you adjust the length on the pole.
Although I to purchase backcountry has the length listed as "centimeters" but this is actually inches. For example you can adjust the first choice from 40 inches to 50 inches.
