New for 2013! An ultra-lightweight option for ski touring, snowshoeing or year-round hiking and backpacking, MSR Flight 2 trekking poles offer intuitive, fast and secure adjustability. The durable 2-section poles weigh in at just 15 ounces per pair!
A SureLock push-button system engages and disengages easily, allowing the poles to be smoothly and quickly extended to whatever height you need. Integrated straps on the grips help to take strain and stress off of your wrists. The straps are also designed to break away entirely if your pole should get lodged during a fall and put your wrists at risk of injury. The upper pole sections are textured well below the standard grips, allowing you to easily hold the poles lower on the shaft, even with gloved hands, eliminating the need to shorten the pole every time you encounter a steep slope.
Flight 2 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.
MSR Flight 2 trekking poles are sold in pairs.
