New as of 2019-20 is the SPEED VARIO 2 ski touring pole for long, challenging tourings in high-alpine terrain. This pole is 100% carbon fiber, and its length can be adjusted from 105-145cm using the push-button system. In addition, it features a comfortable 2K foam grip with an EVA grip extension. That means the pole is as comfortable to hold both at the lower part as at the upper part. The wrist strap at the grip ensures increased stability on the climb. The basket is a 2K powder basket. Weighing in at 208 grams, this pole is among the lightest ski touring poles on the market.
