Updated for 2013! Equipped with innovative trigger release systems and secure locking mechanisms, MSR SureLock TR-3 trekking poles deliver all-season reliability for backpacking and hiking. Constructed of 7000-series aluminum, three-section SureLock TR-3 poles strike a nice balance of weight and durability.
One-handed Trigger Release adjustments on the SureLock TR-3's handles allow you to truly make on-the-go adjustments 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. Integrated straps on the grips help to take strain and stress off of your wrists.
MSR SureLock TR-3 poles include low-profile standard trekking baskets and swappable broader-diameter Snow Baskets (sold separately) are available to equip the poles for winter use. 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 SureLock TR-3 trekking poles are available in your choice of height adjustable lengths.
