Here's what other sites are saying:
Last year, the snow was deceptively deep, and the day was less than relaxing. This year, why chance a repeat? Our Peak UL Winter Touring poles weigh less than a pound and collapse for transport. Small-diameter carbon fiber creates ultralight poles that damp vibration and retain strength over a wide temperature range. Power Lock System adjusts length easily and reliably—even with gloves on! Simply open the lock, set the length and close the lock; there's no pole twisting involved. 2-section telescoping poles extend to a maximum length of 55 in. and compact to 39.5 in. to ease storage and transport. Ultralight foam grips with an ergonomic, contoured shape provide warmth and reduce glove slip. Tacky grip zone on upper section improves gripping ability when traversing a hillside or changing pole length. Large snowflake baskets provide flotation and stability in powder and packed snow conditions; baskets twist on and off. Carbide tips provide reliable traction on a variety of surfaces; rubber protectors extend the life of the tips and protect your gear when stowed in a pack.
