"I'm not too picky about my ski poles, but I have to say these have made it hard to use anything else. The grip is super comfortable, the extended handle adds to their overall versatility, and the locking mechanism is rock solid. Everything you need from a backcountry ski pole!"
I don’t usually put a lot of thought into buying ski poles like I do with every other piece of backcountry gear, but these turned out to be exactly what I didn’t know I needed! The extra padding down the pole is comfortable and easy to grip onto, the baskets have a reinforcement notch that make adjusting your risers a breeze, and the telescopic locking mechanism is super solid—it doesn’t slide at all!
Designed to keep up during fast-paced backcountry ski missions, the Leki Helicon poles minimize weight and maximize convenience. SpeedLock+ technology ensures on-the-go sizing adjustments are quick and easy, and it provides the reliable hold you need during weight-bearing ascents. The Big Mountain Binding Basket (BMBB) provides powder-ready surface area, catch-free swinging and placement, and it allows for standing adjustments to touring bindings. Equipped with PAS EVOCON grips for outstanding hand comfort and grip, the Helicon touring pole from Leki is ready for long days in the backcountry.
