The Talon is a 3 section collapsible aluminum pole built by splitboarders for durability and convenience. It's sturdy enough to really give the support you need on the skin track and fully featured with thoughtful details to make the pole a purposeful part of your touring kit.
Operating exactly like an adjustable ski pole on the ascent, the length can be adjusted from 105-135cm for the most comfortable climb. An extended foam grip allows you to slide your grip down the pole as the hillside contours and a built in scraper on the handle comes in handy for ice crusted pucks and bindings. At 505 grams it's definitely light, and the sturdy recycled aluminum can hold up to both daily skins on the resort, and long powdery backcountry days.
Snow Claw 2.0 baskets articulate with the surface of the snow to get the best grip with every step. Swiveling up to 32 degrees, tourers have found that a dynamic basket's immediate interaction with the slope helps you get the most out of every movement, making you both more secure and efficient.
Collapsing to a very packable length of 61cm, the Talon fits into almost any backcountry pack and forms a tight bundle with the shaft clicking neatly into the basket when folded. Comes with a 3 year warranty and Jeremy Jones' best wishes.
