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.

Nice
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.
