Atomic BCT Mountaineering Carbon SQS is our high-end foldable ski touring pole for ski mountaineers. It’s constructed just like a probe – 5 pieces connected through a string inside – so all you have to do is press a button and it folds down to 40cm in seconds – easy to pack away. You can also adjust the pole’s length to match the gradient of your climb. It’s reflective for night touring and made from a hybrid mix of 5* aluminum and 6* carbon that makes it both extra light and rigid. We’ve also added SQS, our safety quick release system that instantly releases your strap under tension to prevent injuries. A serious pole for serious tourers!
