Strong, light, and ultra-accommodating.
Climb and descend light and strong with the Salomon Element Vario Ski Pole. The adjustable 16-millimeter carbon shaft won't weigh down your quick backcountry travel, and it's burly enough to handle 'oh-crap' kick-turn moments on the steep and narrow. The length adjusts 35 centimeters to accommodate a wide range of conditions, terrain, or height, and the backcountry asymmetrical basket lets you push into slope sides from a secure plant. A cork grip with large neoprene strap holds your hand in optimal position and provides all-day comfort. And the integrated hook makes pulling up the climbing bar simple and easy, without having to bend over.

Touring Poles Only?
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Great construction but these appeared really as a touring only pole with grips inadequate for true front side or even off-piste skiing.
