The BCA Scepter Carbon Aluminum Poles are our lightest touring pole design. The Backcountry Access Scraper Grip s designed to be secure and comfortable while keeping your skis snow-free. Subtly on the grip, you will find the utility hook which makes for an effective binding and boot adjustment while on your excursion- a small yet very functional detail. Carbon lower + 7075 aluminum upper shaft with a sprayed-on grip texture coating makes for the lightest chokeup grip possible. This keeps you from dragging extra weight up the mountain and saves your legs for what matters most.
