New for 2013! Equipped with innovative trigger release systems and secure locking mechanisms, MSR Deploy TR-3 trekking poles deliver all-season reliability for snowshoeing, ski touring and winter hiking and backpacking. Constructed of 7000-series aluminum and employing a three-section design that maximizes collapsibility for ease of travel and transport, Deploy TR-3 poles strike a nice balance of weight and durability.
One-handed Trigger Release adjustments on the Deploy TR-3's handles allow you to truly make on-the-go adjustments, even with gloved hands, instead of having to stop and fiddle with locking mechanisms lower on the pole shafts. By pulling up on the trigger, you disengage the housed SureLock push-button system, allowing the top sections of the poles to smoothly extend to the height you need and then reliably locking back into place. By allowing adjustability solely in the top shafts, MSR saves on bulk and maintains a balanced swing weight.
Ergonomic, dual-density grips serve as confident handholds whether you are or aren’t wearing gloves or mittens. Integrated, adjustable straps help to alleviate stress on your wrists and, to ensure safety, they are designed to breakaway entirely if your pole should get lodged during a fall.
Deploy TR-3 poles include Snow Baskets for optimal performance in packed snow. Additionally, broader Powder Baskets and Summer Baskets (both sold separately) are available to equip the poles with maximum versatility for varying conditions. Carbide tips provide excellent on- or off-trail traction. The tips are replaceable and designed to break away entirely on the off-chance that you would get the poles stuck between rocks, putting poles shafts in jeopardy.
Sold in pairs, MSR Deploy TR-3 trekking poles are available in your choice of height adjustable lengths.
