The BCA Scepter Aluminum Adjustable Poles are great choice for backcountry skiers, telemarkers and snowshoers. It’s designed to be secure and comfortable while keeping your skis or snowshoes snow-free. Located on the grip of the pole, you will find a utility hook that acts as a multi-tool for on-the-fly-adjustments in the field. Use it as a scraper to take snow off your skis to reduce weight and lighten up our load on the uphill. Use it from switching from uphill to downhill mode on your toe piece for AT or tele bindings, or as a boot adjuster for buckles or walk modes without having to bend down and use your hands. The upper shaft features an EVA choke grip, so you can adjust your hand position quickly for steep climbs, flat approaches or uneven traverses. The Scepter has full adjustability from 105- 145 centimeters with the flick of a switch. For main stream uphill and down travel, the BCA Scepter Aluminum Adjustable Pole is a true workhorse.
