If you’re looking for a reliable and lightweight pole for touring (and one you can use for days on the piste as well) Atomic BCT Touring SQS W is a great option. It’s a women’s pole made from highest grade 5* aluminum giving it lots of strength. It’s telescopic with easy length adjustment (80cm-130cm) so you can match it to the gradient of your climb. We’ve added SQS, our safety quick release system that instantly releases your strap under tension to prevent injuries. It has an extended ergonomic EVA grip so you can hold your pole further down on climbs, and the women’s grip is slightly smaller in diameter than the men’s version. Enjoy your tour!
