G3’S LIGHTEST ADJUSTABLE TWO-PIECE SKI POLE

THE premier carbon ski pole for technical users looking for a lightweight yet fully-featured tool with a feature set built for the backcountry.

Now lighter than ever with its ergonomic foam grip. Soft and comfortable foam grip with dual density plastic upper for precision. Extended utility tab for binding heel lifts, boot buckles, and more. Also aids in precise pole plants.

Hard plastic eyelet yields one of 2 attachment points for drying gloves or attaching tent lines.  Included backcountry strap is comfortable, form fitting, and easily removable for skiing in avalanche terrain.

Features a lightweight and simple lower grip position for side-hill ski touring. The all-mountain basket reduces drag & eliminates cantilever effect in hard pack snow or while doing steep terrain kick turns.  Also makes it easier to hook binding heel lifts up and down.

    Generally happy but could use a couple tweaks

    I have always been impressed with the durability of my old Carbon Vias for whacking tree branches and beating down the snow when trail breaking. I expect the new ones will perform as well over the long term.

    Love the long rubber grips on these poles with the bump that makes choking up easy on the side hills.

    The long hooks on the handles make pulling my toe pieces up a breeze. They are also handy for hooking rope between branches around the back side of trees to set up the ridgeline on a kitchen tarp.

    The baskets nestle well when stacking poles together but I love being able to bundle the poles and skis together by clicking the poles into left and right sides of the toe and heal pieces. Unfortunately the basket holes are too far apart so they separate when doing this. My old Carbon Vias did that better with wider spacing in the basket holes.

    The Velcro spacing on the leashes doesn't allow a tight fit around the hands for poling XC style across the flats.

    Great poles!

    I love that the handles have tabs to pull and engage switch bindings. Also, very handy having two alternate grip points along the pole for the uphill side of a traverse. Easily removable straps are great too, for those who prefer not to have straps. All in all a well thought out product.
