Versatility for whatever the backcountry has to offer.
The Atomic BCT Adjustable Ski Pole offers serious versatility for skiers who refuse to stick to the beaten path. Durable aluminum alloy helps to prevent the BCT from bending or breaking while you're out in the backcountry. A comfortable touring grip features a foam extension on the upper shaft, so you can grip the pole lower down for added leverage while making that uphill push. A specially designed tough plastic protective cap on the top of the grip allows you to adjust your boots or bindings without bending down. Atomic gave this puppy an extra wide strap for added security and leverage.

- Q & A
Baskets need review
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
The poles here are great, however atomic needs to revisit their basket design. I bought these to replace the last atomic poles I bought with POW baskets last year. The baskets tore mid season. These unfortunatly have the same basket design and tore the 2nd day. I'd hate to think its me as this has never happened, but its time to go with someone else.
Not the lightest - Not the stiffest
However, this is great bang for the buck. Mechanical pieces seem like they will last.
