New for 2014! An ultra-lightweight option for year-round hiking and backpacking, MSR Swift 2 trekking poles offer intuitive, fast and secure adjustability. Despite durable 7000 series aluminum construction, these poles weigh just 15.0 ounces per pair!
Truly minimalist in style, the Swift 2 poles offer moderate compactness in exchange for high strength and ultra lightweight. MSR’s SureLock push-button system allows the two-section Swift 2 poles to be smoothly and quickly extended to the most comfortable height for your preferences, and is a main reason these poles can be so light despite being constructed of heavy duty 7000 series aircraft-grade aluminum! A "lobed" shaft ensures that the push-button mechanism remains aligned so that it engages and disengages easily. Integrated easy-adjust straps on the ergonomic foam grips help to take strain and stress off of your wrists.
Swift 2 poles include low-profile standard trekking baskets. 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. Swappable broader-diameter Snow Baskets (sold separately) are available to equip the poles for winter use.
MSR Swift 2 trekking poles are sold in pairs.
