MSR (Mountain Safety Research), the Seattle-based engineer of standard-setting, high-performance outdoor equipment, is bringing the new SureLock all-season pole line to the winter market, and announcing an additional model for 2012. The MSR SureLock pole line is built around a patent-pending, positive-locking adjustment system that eliminates pole slippage.
The new MSR SureLock pole designs feature three major boosts in technology:
-SureLock Adjustment System: By interlocking pole segments together —— the true definition of a positive-locking mechanism — there is no way that it can slip. Indexing provides extremely fast and accurate adjustment while the unique tri-lobe shaft shape guarantees system alignment and unquestionable reliability.
-One Handed Trigger Release: Aglove-friendly, two-finger pull at the base of the pole grip allows a complete, one-handed collapse for easy packing or rapidly changing pole length to match terrain in the field. The hydro-formed Trigger Release sleeve offers added, all-weather protection for the SureLock mechanism.
-Efficient Strength: With the adjustment technology in the upper shaft, the pole has an incredibly smooth and easy top-centered swing. The 7000-series aluminum pole sections are formed with a unique wall thickness, targeting durability where it’s needed most.
In response to clear market interest, MSR has added the SureLock UL-3 pole to the 2012 collection. The SureLock UL-3 pole delivers three-section compactness and a streamlined design for extra weight savings, weighing six ounces less than the SureLock TR-3 pole. The SureLock UL-3 pole joins three other models in the MSR SureLock pole collection — the SureLock TR-3, SureLock TR-2 and SureLock UL-2.
