If you're planning on picking off serious backcountry objectives, it's pretty sweet to have a dead eye weapon like the Leki Tour Stick Trigger S Ski Pole in your holster. An adjustable, collapsible, aluminum and carbon stick, the Trigger is perfect for out of bounds and in bounds adventures alike. It sports a super comfortable Aergon Tour Thermo Mid grip, with an extension for easy traversing and sidehilling, and a Lock Security adjustable neoprene strap that wraps securely around your wrist for killer control. The Speed Lock 2 locking mechanism lets you use the pole anywhere between 115 and 135cm, while the design allows the Tour Stick to collapse into five sections for smooth and easy packing. Leki also tossed in interchangeable hard and soft snow baskets because it's friendly, and finished the pole off with its Flex Tip, which grips on soft snow and hard surfaces alike.
