This pole blends carbon and aluminum, and has all the same features of the Carbon/carbon model. It utilizes the patent pending LockJaw clamp that allows on-the-fly adjustments with or without gloves, and also sports the snow depth ruler to probe snow, back-up probe capability, and the new bubble vial inclinometer to determine slope angle.
TRIAX CARBON TECHNOLOGY
Developed exclusively by K2, Triax Technology is the controlled process of winding carbon fibers at a 60 degree angle around the outside of the shaft. The external TRIAX fibers reinforce and control the uni-directional fibers of the pole, to create a more durable/Stiff shaft. This allows poles built with Triax Technology to feature a thinner (14mm) shaft that is stiffer and lighter then any pole we have ever produced.
The High-strength 7075 and 6061 aircraft aluminum creates a seamless tubing shaft for a durable alternative to our composite shafts.
