With enough versatility to satisfy guides and pole-enthusiasts, the Speed Vario is light enough that even racers will jump for joy. This Dynafit stick does it all and does it well, the epitome of a high-performance ski touring pole. The EVA grip is ergonomic and carries an extension for choking up or side-hilling while still at full-length. The quest for reliable length-adjustment is over thanks to Dynafit's Safety Snap System, a series of grooves and markings that reduce slippage and quickly identify the proper length. A tab on the top of the grip helps articulate risers, lock or unlock toe levers, and tickle your partner. The Dynafit Speed Vario pole is a slick, lightweight, and functional pole for use in the backcountry. Sold in pairs.
Update 2019/20: This pole has been superseded by the Vario 2.0.
