The Sherpa FX is designed for all-season expert level performance, featuring a slightly trimmed shaft for lower weight in comparison to the Sherpa FX Max. With a pole width of 18mm on the top section, this pole packs serious stability and durability. This mountaineering pole is equipped with the innovative new Aergon Air grip, which has been redesigned in terms of comfort and control and has been improved in numerous ways. The special hollow-core technology allows for a combination of lightweight construction with large, supportive surfaces that meet all the ergonomic requirements of your hand. The back of the Aergon Air grip is fully rubberized for maximum grip and control when going downhill. The inclined angle supports your wrist for optimal guidance and placement of the pole and contributes to safety on the mountain. This 5-section pole is equipped with a flex tip, allowing the Big Mountain Binding Basket to be added directly on the mountain in case of snow/ice. This foldable carbon pole collapses into three sections just 16 in length making it a cinch to stow away in your pack when not in use. The pole has a carbon upper complemented by a robust aluminum base, providing both lightness and stability for all your mountaineering adventures!
