Here's what other sites are saying:

The K2 BackSide Carbon Pole is a light, stiff solution for backcountry skiers who know exactly what length of pole they need, no adjustability required. Plant this pole's wide powder baskets deep in the trail and skin off into the backcountry when everyone else is fighting to get on a lift chair.

K2 BackSide Carbon Poles are brand new carbon composite ski poles built to be the lightest ski poles for resort and efficient backcountry use. Full-length fixed carbon shaft creates a super lightweight, responsive pole for all conditions. Composite tubing features 100 percent synthetic fibers for a lighter weight pole with better strength than aluminum, and carbon fiber with 2.5 times the strength of aluminum at half the weight. Snow depth ruler included with inverted centimeter markings on the pole. Simply flip the pole upside down, probe with the grip and quickly measure ski penetration, boot penetration or the depth of a snow layer. Inclinometer markings so you can quickly and easily measure slope angle with both poles. Carbide tips offer traction on icy slopes and, when the going gets rough and rocky, are less prone to rock damage or splitting. Dual-density Adventure grip features a utility hook for adjusting AT binding heel lifts or unbuckling boots. Soft TPR material prov. Size: 110 to 135 cm (44 to 54 in). Material: Carbon Composite. BackSide Dual Density Grip. Powder and Hard-Snow Baskets. Snow Depth Ruler and Inclinometer Markings
