It has a well-contoured and comfortable grip with tacky rubber for easy grasping. The pole is also one of the least expensive on the market, making it a top choice for users on a budget. The powder basket is a good size and does not dive too deep on a power day, while the risers are solid carbide. The strap is simple but effective. The pole is tall when completely collapsed but holds up well to being heavily weighted during use. Overall, the Leki Helicon Lite is a great value for the money and a reliable choice for backcountry skiing.
