Comments about K2 Speedlink 4 Adjustable Ski Poles 2014:
Sorry K2, but I have to be honest on this one.
These looked really cool! When packed this four section pole was one of the (if not THE) shortest poles on the market when I bought mine last seasons, and was also one of the lightest. The poles had a good hook for adjusting touring risers, extra grip on the shaft for choking down on your uphill pole without having to physically adjust it, and used the same push pin system that I have trusted to hold my avalanche shovel together for all these years. The one section that didn't use the push pin was perfect for allowing just enough adjustment in grip height.
So I had my mom pick me up a pair for Christmas, and then they broke. The morning of their first use I collapsed the poles, and stashed them in my pack. When I tried to take them out at the trail head one of the push pins was stuck, and wouldn't open. Even at home later that day I couldn't get it to budge.
I took them in to warranty them, and got a new pair a couple weeks later. These ones worked fine out of the box, but within a month I started having issues with the shafts and pins getting stuck in position until one day one of the poles simply would not open anymore.
I started working on the warranty process again, but realized there is no way that I wanted another set of these poles. Something is wrong with their design that needs to be fixed. These are not issues that I have seen with any other collapsible poles that I have used, and are not issues you can afford to be having in the backcountry.
