Here's what other sites are saying:
Climb and descend light and strong with the Salomon Element Vario Ski Pole. The adjustable 16-millimeter carbon shaft won't weigh down your quick backcountry travel, and it's burly enough to handle 'oh-crap' kick-turn moments on the steep and narrow. The length adjusts 35 centimeters to accommodate a wide range of conditions, terrain, or height, and the backcountry asymmetrical basket lets you push into slope sides from a secure plant. A cork grip with large neoprene strap holds your hand in optimal position and provides all-day comfort. And the integrated hook makes pulling up the climbing bar simple and easy, without having to bend over.
Designed to keep your hands light and airy, the Element Vario Ski Pole from Salomon is a 100% carbon fiber pole that's among the lightest and stiffest available. Outfitted with a large neoprene strap that is a no-buckle system that offers better transmission of energy and comfort. Foam and cork grip with an adjustable from 100-135cm.
