+MSR SureLock Pole Trigger Release Detail, 126 kb

The MSR® trekking poles, with proprietary SureLock™ technology, are engineered to address a user's three highest priorities: ease of use, quick, fail-safe adjustment, and superior durability and strength.

The 2013 updates focus on comfort and trekking performance, offering ergonomic grips, along with improved straps and trekking-specific accessories. The SureLock™ poles feature the easiest and most reliable adjustment system available.

SureLock™ TR-3

Our best-selling SureLock pole delivers rock-solid performance for aggressive backcountry travelers demanding ultimate compactness and quick adjustment for frequently changing terrain. Includes Trekking Baskets.

Features:

  • Zero-slip, SureLock™ Reliability: Push-button locking system is intuitive, fast and absolutely secure.
  • One-handed Trigger Release: Glove-friendly, one-handed adjustment from the grip changes the way users interact with their poles and the terrain around them. It is by far the easiest pole-adjustment mechanism on the market.
  • Ergonomic Grips: Ultralight, contoured grips are made of injection-molded cork for maximum comfort while minimizing hand fatigue.
  • Quick-adjustment Straps: Redesigned straps afford next-to-skin comfort and faster, easier adjustment
  • Streamlined Form: New discrete ferrules create smoother section junctions to shed bulk and create an incredibly lightweight, sleek pole.
  • Efficient Strength: 7000-series aerospace-grade aluminum pole sections are formed with unique wall thickness to target durability where it's needed most.
  • Compact: Three-section design offers maximum compactness without sacrificing overall strength.

SureLock™ TR-2

A versatile, two-section trekking pole featuring the SureLock™ reliability and fast, one-handed trigger release for use through a wide range of pursuits where moderate compatibility is all that's needed. Designed for those who find themselves most often with pole in-hand, rather than stowed on their pack. Includes Trekking Baskets.
