The Les Batons d’Alain is a single-shaft aluminum pole with an eye catching extended foam handle. Crafted in the steep valley of Chamonix, this iconic pole was brought into the world by Mountain Guide Alain Desez. They have seen a surge in popularity within the ski mountaineering community but they’re just as useful for mountain running. With a textured grip that extends far below the likes of other poles, you’ll never feel that awful sensation of slipping down a pole with sweaty hands. Lightweight AND supportive, Les Batons d’Alain just might help you shave off those precious seconds on your next FKT attempt of the local steep climb (slog).
- Come in a plethora of different color combinations.
- 7075 anodized aluminum makes up the entirety of the pole shaft giving it a trail-worthy strength-to-weight ratio.
- The caps of the pole accommodate straps if you so choose.
- Incredibly lightweight design so it doesn't weigh you down.
