The Contour is a ultralight trekking pole, weighing a scant 526 grams (1 lb 2 oz) per pair. Utilizing a corrective angle of 15º, a comfortable, non-slip foam grip with lower extension and padded webbing, the Contour offers high performance with a comfortable feel. The “Zero-Slip” FlickLock and simplistically solid Binary adjustments offer a usable adjustment range of 37 centimeters. The Contour is an excellent long distance or technical approach pole when weight is crucial.

Voted 4/5

These Poles have worked great for me except for one complaint. The binary locking system the lower pole section uses is very very hard to collapse when its cold out. I find I have to push very hard on it, meaning I have to take my gloves off and get cold hands. Other than that, they work like a charm. Get the snow baskets for winter use.
