    A safer touring pole.

    Wrist straps are nice, but they aren't always a good call in the backcountry. The Salomon MTN Carbon S2 Ski Pole features an auto-release strap, so you get the security of wrist straps, without the worry of your poles dragging you around in the event of an avalanche. The extended foam grip allows you to choke up on the pole during the ascent, while the lightweight carbon shaft shaves weight for more efficient backcountry travel.
    • Kevlar reinforced carbon shaft
    • Adjustable length (100-135cm)
    • Extended foam grip
    • S3 auto-release strap
    • Articulated basket included
    • Carbide tip

    Best Touring Poles

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I purchased these only after getting a feel for them in person. I've had adjustable touring poles in the past, and I've always had problems either with the flick lock mechanism or problems with the poles feeling flimsy and vibrating on pole plants.
    The shaft of these poles are very sturdy and stiff, while still being nice and light for touring (thanks to the carbon kevlar combo). The size adjustment is very easy to use and has been very secure thus far.
    I love having the foam at the top of the shaft, so you can grip down on the pole when touring/bootpacking up steep inclines. Not having to clamp down on a thin metal pole helps me keep my hands warm, because I'm not gripping for dear life.
    Lastly, the quick release straps are such a nice feature. It's a great safety feature so you're not attached to your poles when you take a tumble, but it's awesome for chairlift rides as well. I always sit on my poles on the lift, and it's nice to detach them by the straps and then not have to fuss with getting your winter mittens through the straps once you get off the lift.
    I'd highly recommend these if you're in the market for new touring poles.
