The Black Crows Duos Freebird Adjustable Ski Poles provide the versatile performance that backcountry skiers need. Some skiers prefer shorter and longer lengths for the skin up and ski down and this ski provides whatever length you want with a secure locking switch. Black Crows built this pole out of aluminum for rigid durability and an aggressive performance. The grip extends down the pole so you can choke down during tight steep switch backs. The basket works well for powder the sharp tip pokes through firmer snow and this pole performs regardless of the snow conditions.
