Superb ultra light carbon fibre trekking poles that work like tent poles/avalanche probes in how they assemble. Very lightweight EVA grip as well, meaning that these come in at well under 300g/pair.
Designed for 3 Season use, ie lightweight use in Spring, Summer and Autumn, not heavy duty alpine or winter mountaineering.
These poles are ideal for someone contemplating such classic treks as the Everest Base Camp Trek or the Inca Trail as they come with an interchangeable choice of either soft Rubber Tips (ferules) or tough Carbide Tips (both types are included). Carbide or metal tips are forbidden on these treks due to the damage they cause. The ultimate in light weight but much more easily damaged. Buy these only if weight saving is essential and do not expect them to survive and awkward fall of be as robust as their aluminium counterparts.
100% carbon fibre shafts. 3-section Z-Pole folding design with speed cone deployment for locking the pole rigid. Lightweight EVA foam grip and breathable, moisture-wicking strap. Non-slip foam mini grip extension under the handle for contouring. Includes interchangeable, non-marking Z-Pole Rubber Tips, Z-pole Carbide Tips and stowage bag. Stopper basket with "shaft catcher" secures the pole when folded.
Excellent Poles for your adventures!
