Technology

TRIAX Carbon Technology

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.

Aluminum

Aluminum
The High-strength 7075 and 6061 aircraft aluminum creates a seamless tubing shaft for a durable alternative to our composite shafts.

Bubble Inclinometer

Bubble Inclinometer
Quick slope measurement is in the palm of your hand with Bubble Inclinometer equipped LockJaw Poles.

LockJaw2 Clamp

LockJaw2 Clamp
Revolutionary over-center cam design provides effortless length adjustments, while delivering greater clamping power and easier release than similar clamps.

      Locking mechanism plastic broke on first assembly.

              design the latch so it doesn't break. skis great, poles awful
              plus there is nowhere to get a spare for this.
              really disappointing

              Breaks so easy!!!

              By Joe Blow

              from Calgary AB

              Comments about K2 Skis LockJaw Carbon/Alu Probe:

              After only a couple of times using my poles, the latch that holds the two parts together broke in half. The plastic that composes of the latch is not very strong and the part that holds it together is not very thick.

              Latch Broke on Mine Too!!!

              By Sandman

              Comments about K2 Skis LockJaw Carbon/Alu Probe:

              After less than 12 uses, the plastic locking clamp broke on one pole. The plastic appears granulated and not manufactured properly. I easily removed the faulty clamp, but K2 refuses to replace it. K2 skis are great. Don't buy the poles, Bad Plastic.

              Room to improve

              By N/A

              from South Lake Tahoe CA

              Comments about K2 Skis LockJaw Carbon/Alu Probe:

              One latch broke about 10th time I used them. Over a year old, so no warranty and K2 tells me: (1) can't buy the part (2) cannot pay to fix (3) cannot buy one pole. I am a long-time really big K2 fan and will continue to be one but this has been a disappointment as I never abused them. K2: you can and should step it up a bit on this. Until such time as that happens, recommend Black Diamond or Life-Link. The semi-good news: another use for duct tape to at least get home.
