Designed to endure the most rugged conditions found only in the backcountry, SISSY STIX Backcountry Pro poles are built to be tough and durable while still maintaining an ultralight weight of only 7.5 oz per pole. The 100% 3K Carbon Fiber upper and middle sections reduce weight without sacrificing strength and the highly durable Areospace Grade Aluminum lower sections give you the confidence needed to take on whatever terrain the backcountry can throw at you! The lightweight anodized aluminum QuickLock system allows for instant pole adaptability from 42-54 inches. Just flip the lock open, adjust height, snap it closed and keep on trekking. SISSY STIX are tough and rugged, but you won’t sacrifice comfort while using them. Ergonomic EVA shock absorbing grips and padded wrist straps reduce hand fatigue and keep you smiling mile after mile helping you HIKE FARTHER. HUNT DEEPER. SKI HARDER.
