Inspired by athletes’ spirit of adventure, Austria’s Komperdell has been making ski poles and other alpine gear since 1922. This is the company’s Carbon C2 Ultralight: an adjustable carbon touring pole that weighs just 6.4 ounces. Featuring two sections, an Expedition Contour short grip, and a padded strap, it keeps mountaineers moving without weighing them down. The Powerlock 3.0 locking mechanism, made of high-density aluminum, provides secure holding power and fast, easy length adjustments. An Ice-Flex basket and tungsten-carbide tip complete the package.
