The Komperdell Carbon Freeride Descent Powerlock 3. 0 Ski Pole offers you the portability you want on the way up and the support you need on the way down. During your ascent, use the Power Lock 3. 0 system to make your poles significantly more compact. Composed of two sections, the Descent features aluminum in its upper and carbon in its lower for reduced weight without sacrificing integrity. The Titanal Rocksleeve is highly resilient against rock edge impact, ultimately prolonging the life of your pole. Reduce your chances of ever losing a pole again with the G'Reptile grip zone with padded strap. The unique ice slope baskettip construction pivots 28 degrees, adapting the Descent poles to any terrain you'll encounter.
