Atomic BCT Touring Carbon SQS W is one of our top hybrid poles specifically made for women. It’s created with a combination of high-grade 5* aluminum and 6* carbon which makes it robust, light and compact – all you need for touring. It’s telescopic with easy length adjustment (80cm-130cm) so you can match it to the gradient of your climb. It has an extended EVA grip for comfortably holding the pole lower down, and the women’s grip is slightly smaller in diameter than the men’s version. We’ve 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.
