Fischer BCX Variolite
The Fischer BCX Variolite is a lightweight aluminum pole that adapts flexibly to terrain and thus gives ambitious skiers the best possible support in the back-country. Pole length can be adjusted easily with a single movement of the hand thanks to the new Air Lock 2.0 feature that also displays the effective pole length in the setting window. The lightweight Flexlite Basket features a low swingweight as well, and the special Multi Grip handle allows different grip positions. The SRP is $79 [US] / $499 [CDN].
The Atomic BCT adjustable ski pole offers serious versatility for skiers who refuse to stick to the beaten path. Durable aluminum alloy helps to prevent the BCT from bending or breaking while you're out in the back-country. A comfortable touring grip features a foam extension on the upper shaft so you can grip the pole lower down for added leverage while making that uphill push. A specially designed tough plastic protective cap on the top of the grip allows you to adjust your boots or bindings without bending down. Atomic gave this puppy an extra-wide strap for added security and leverage. The SRP is $79 [US] / $119 [CDN]
