Navigate tricky terrain with the MSR SureLock TR-2 Trekking Pole in hand and gain the confidence you need to go further, faster. Streamlined by design, this pole might appear overly simple at first glance, but it packs a clever surprise. A simple flick of the wrist adjusts the shaft length to your liking and then locks the shaft sections back into place securely. You get the right length to match the height of the terrain and you never have to break your stride—how's that for ingenuity?

  • Dual-density grip works with a broad range of hand sizes and features a catch for raising heel lifts on snowshoes and AT bindings
  • Trigger Release allows for one-handed length adjustment right from the grip
  • SureLock Adjustment system utilizes a positive-locking mechanism (locking button) to prevent slipping in a variety of weather conditions
  • Swing weight has a top-center bias to help you keep an efficient stride over long distances
  • Two-section design lets you collapse the SureLock TR-2 down for convenient transport
  • Trekking baskets offer traction and stability in loose and variable terrain

What do you think about this product?

Have questions about this product?

To heavy, too bulky.

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

These would suffice for a day trip where weight wasn't a concern but I wouldn't take these poles for multiple overnights in the backcountry. After researching trekking poles a bit more, I discovered that 21.7oz for a pair of poles is fairly heavy. I bought these on sale for $85 which is decent and I usually love MSR (we use their hydro bags, bladders, and have the gravity water filter) but these poles weren't worth it. I'm going to spend a bit more and get poles that are half the weight and less bulky.

I finally found a good trekking pole!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've tried (and returned) several trekking poles, but the MSR SureLock TR-2 Trekking Poles are the best I've tried. The quick adjustment is ingenious. I also like how the poles look like something out of star wars :)


    I need a nice pair for long, and short trips..these came in handy with the trigger adjustment and the extra snow flake baskets. seems pretty sturdy, and I like how there arent any nobs on the outside to get caught in the brush..Love em so far

    Great Trekking Poles

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    The trigger lock is pretty cool. It's a tad harder to engage than I would like. You almost need two hands to pull hard enough to get it, but not quite. It's handy for alpine climbing where you don't neccessarily want to use two hands to adjust it. The geometric shape of the shaft is pretty cool and seems to add to the stability.
