Updated for 2013! An ultra-lightweight option for year-round hiking and backpacking, MSR SureLock UL-3 trekking poles offer intuitive, fast and secure adjustability. The durable 3-section poles weigh in at just 15 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. 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.
SureLock UL-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.
MSR SureLock UL-3 trekking poles are sold in pairs.
