The lightweight and exceptionally durable VIA is packed with features designed for backcountry use and built to outlast the demanding abuse of mountain travel.

Features an ergonomic dual-density plastic grip shaped for comfort.  The QuickFlick Utility Tab flicks heel lifts and buckles with ease. Also aids in precise pole plants. Hard plastic eyelet yields one of 2 attachment points for drying gloves or attaching tent lines.

The included backcountry strap is comfortable, form fitting, and easily removable for skiing in avalanche terrain.  And the all-mountain basket is the perfect size (85 mm) and shape to tackle any snow condition and especially suited for steep and technical terrain. Material is stiff enough to manipulate bindings.

Every aspect has been thought out, with a lower side hill touring grip. The burly forged Aluminum lever with a simple and easy to use offset cam gives you a reliable and sturdy connection between pole sections.

Good help

Sturdy, comfortable to use poles

These poles are a significant improvement over my previous adjustable and collapsible poles, they have more strength both laterally and horizontally. The rubber grips below the main handle make side hilling without gloves (useful when it's warm and I don't need gloves) much more comfortable.

I also really like the easily removable straps. I never use straps in the backcountry as they are an avalanche hazard.
