Updated for 2013! An ultra-lightweight option for year-round hiking and backpacking, MSR SureLock UL-2 trekking poles offer intuitive, fast and secure adjustability. Despite employing durable 7000-series aluminum construction, the poles weigh in at just 15.6 ounces per pair!
The SureLock push-button system allows the poles to be smoothly and quickly extended to whatever height you need. A "lobed" shaft ensures that the push-button mechanism remains aligned so that it engages and disengages easily. Integrated straps on the grips help to take strain and stress off of your wrists.
SureLock UL-2 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.
MSR SureLock UL-2 trekking poles are sold in pairs.
