BCT Touring Carbon SQS is one of our top Atomic hybrid poles made with a combination of high-grade 5* aluminum and 6* carbon. This makes it robust, light and compact – all you need for touring. It’s telescopic with easy length adjustment (95cm-145cm) so you can match it to the gradient of your climb and has an extended EVA grip for comfortably holding the pole lower down. We’ve also added SQS, our safety quick release system that instantly releases your strap under tension to prevent injuries. And if you’re out night touring, the pole is also reflective.
