MSR made the SureLock TR-2 Trekking Pole for the active user who only isn't overly concerned with storage space. If your trekking poles tend to live near the front door, and you tend to live near the trailhead, then don't bother dropping extra money on a pole designed to fit in a glovebox. The SureLock TR-2 Trekking Pole provides the same durability and quality you've come to expect from MSR and gets you on the trail in no time.
The two-section design of MSR's SureLock TR-2 Poles is ideal for trips where they spend the majority of the time in your hands not on your pack. MSR's patent-pending Trigger Release adjustment system offers a full range of rapid adjustability directly from the grip, making these ideal for ski touring, snowshoeing and on-trail use over variable terrain. SureLock Adjustment System: 100% positive-locking mechanism offers the confidence of absolute, non-slip performance in all conditions.
