In reply to UKC/UKH Gear:

Your comments on handles and straps is interesting - I guess if Komperdell see this particularly as a ski touring pole people are going to want a relatively traditional handle and strap from a skiers perspective? That said, it does seem that some people are moving away from straps on their ski poles because of a risk (or perceived risk?) of being attached to your poles in avalanche terrain. I don't get to skimo enough myself to have come to any conclusion on this, and with the strapless poles that seem to have become trendy in Cham-extreme-ski type circles I do wonder if they are much use when your are skinning up or even crossing flat terrain.
