SWITCHRELEASE

SWITCHRELEASE

Designed to release when weighted from upwards, the Black Diamond SwitchRelease Strap allows for peace of mind when skiing in tree-heavy terrain. Unlike other systems, the Safety Release Strap maintains a traditional pole strap design, allowing for easy in and out. When released, one side of the system stays in place on the pole, guaranteeing that you will never lose the strap.

 
Razor Carbon Pro Ski Poles is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another solid upgrade I had an earlier version of these backcountry ski poles for a decade until I lost one pole. The razor carbon pro is a fantastic up grade. The lever to extend/contract the length is smooth, no need to use brute force. The grips are ergonomic providing a great marriage with the hand for long duration comfort. However, the BEST feature is the hand strap - easily adjustable WITH a quick release to save your shoulder, arm, wrist from the sudden sniper grab on the long luge ride out where speed is necessary and shrubs/trees persist. Of course, the quick release is also a necessity if avi terrain.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice, light, but missed details... I do like these poles, light and a pretty nice swing though the basket does make them feel heavier. I bought them as a replacement from really old pair of BD adjustable poles where I had bent the lower shaft, and figured a new pair made the list this year. Would I buy them again? Yes, but probably not with the releasable strap. The missed details, however I feel that could be corrected: The safety release mechanism, while a great idea, and it does seem like it will work great when it's needed does create a large space between the strap ends where they connect to the end of the pole. For me this causes the strap to flip up which goes unnoticed, until I actually need the strap. Typically this has happened when I am touring, which is when I want the strap the most to support pole plants while not having to over grip the pole. The release function here is almost unneeded except of course if caught in an avalanche. I have also almost dropped a pole on the down because of the flipped over strap. And to answer the question, I do have the strap as short as possible while still being able to have the grip rest between my thumb and index finger. The flick locks could be aligned with the grips, so they cannot snag on brush. Thankfully when it happened I didn't actually loose the lower shaft, but it did fall out completely. Ha, it was actually pretty funny and thankfully I wasn't going that fast, so it was an easy find and a short hike up. It's an easy enough fix, and planning on rectifying that myself by heating up the grips and rotating them.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Needs Improvement... Let me start by saying I really wanted to like these poles.... After having a sever thumb injury last season due to my pole getting stuck I sought these out for their releasable straps. This year unfort, I've had nothing but problems with these poles. I'm a New England tree skier and things get full contacty sometimes. This is where the first problem arises... 1. The Flic Lock latches get caught and open on tree branches and then you lose the bottom of your pole. The Flic Lock mechanisms need to be redesigned to be directional. When holding the poles the correct hands, the locks would both be on the outside, and facing backwards. When they face forwards the are able to catch on things and then you lose the bottom half of your pole as you're skiing. I had to duct tape them shut since no matter how you hold the poles one lock always faces forward. I've spent a lot of time hiking in deep poweder to go retrieve the lower section of the pole. Luckily I haven't lost it... yet... 2. As noted below, the pole straps sit in a very awkward fashion over the top of the pole grip. It makes holding the poles with a thin glove feel uncomfortable. Additionally the fact that the strap tail comes out under your hand doubles the awkward feeling. As the poles currently are, you have a left and a right in order to get the straps to sit smoothly so, why not go ahead and flip the locking mechanisms so they face outside and backwards? 3. Lastly is that there's no way to lock in strap length. I am finding that I am constantly pulling on that bit of strap tail that feeds out from below the grip to tighten them so the straps dont flip up over the handle or so that they support my hand when poling. Now here's the rub when you're using them on a powder day the strap ices up from the heat of your hand melting the snow on the strap and then the strap becomes un-tightenable without biting and chipping off the ice that forms on the strap. So BD great start and a needed product but it needs some very real tweaks. The locking mechanisms shouldn't need duct tape to keep them locked, the straps should lock, and they need to be redesigned so the strap doesn't interfere with the grip.
