Collapsible and carbon made, Scott's Cascade C Adjustable Ski Pole is choice among serious backcountry skiers. This ski pole adjusts for an ideal length in any terrain, and it collapses in four parts for compact pack away convenience. An auto locking tension system ensures stability, security, and quick adjustments. Carbon fibers give the Cascade a surprising amount of strength for its superlight weight. Scott also added a foam cork grip that molds to your hand for customized comfort, and an additional no slip grip extends down the pole for steep skins. There's a Duraflex carbide tip offers greater flexibility to reduce stress, and the interchangeable baskets accommodate powdery and hardpack conditions.
