Product Description

These superb trekking poles are made from a super-lightweight aluminium alloy and weigh just 240g per pole.

They feature soft & comfortable EVA moulded handles with adjustable neoprene-padded wrist straps.


With four compact sections, they can be fully extended from just 55cm up to 136cm, to suit your height and the gradient. This also means they telescope neatly away when not in use, fitting inside many rucsacs, suitcases, sports bags and hand luggage.
They have removable snow baskets, which can be attached near the base of the pole, designed to prevent sinkage in soft ground or snow. At the end of each pole there is a sturdy, hard tungsten alloy trekking tip for mountain use, and a removable rubber ferule for easy ground.
Colour: Black.

5.0 out of 5 stars compact and easy to use 4 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase
I found these excellent, I see a previous reviewer managed to bend one but as we used these poles for hill walking and hiking rather than climbing (so the weight is always down the shaft) we found them quite strong enough. They fix in length very well - no sudden collapse of the locking mechanism and fit in luggage easily. I thought them light in weight for what they are (and the price). Those with large hands might find that the hand grips are not long enough for them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Survived trekking trip to Nepal 18 May 2012
Verified Purchase
These poles are my first and I think they are great. They really saved my knees on a trekking trip to Nepal. Four sections are handy as it can be extended to exactly your chosen length and shortened to just 55cm for transit which is shorter than others I have seen. Hand grips were comfortable and non-slip - no blisters! The weight was light and easy to store in my backpack. For a longer trek I think I would pay a few extra pounds and go for something super light.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding value 3 Dec 2011
Excellent product for the price. Not particularly light but fold small for travel.
Used them for the first time in very slippery muddy conditions - prevented many messy slips!
Find out how to use them effectively (good websites) - they make a great difference on hills - up and down! They will come apart if you pull the sections too far but this is easily fixed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Don't loose the bits at the ends 14 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase
They seem to work fine though might be a problem if you are heavy or clumsy (this applies to most of these aids). I bought these because you must have collapsable poles if you are travelling by air. Read the instructions in how to adjust them. It wasn't obvious to me how to do it (but I'm a bit on the dim side).

4.0 out of 5 stars Went in my hand baggage, just. 5 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase
I enjoy walking and travel 'light'. Bought these as at 55cm they are OK for cabin baggage on a plane - but check what will fit in your bag first. I take a rucksack and there was no problem. The poles are heavier than my other poles - I suspect that is partly the penalty of 4 sections - but they seem sturdy, are comfortable and do the job. Just a pity there was no 'anti-shock' option.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good at the price 7 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase
There is a saying "Buy cheap, buy twice". Well they were so cheap, I bought them as an experiment. so I don't mind buying twice. They are not perfect - they can be quite fiddly especially because they need to be tightened enough not to slip (ie shorten unintentionally) yet you still need to be able to undo them when you are finished. A more expensive system uses clips to tighten the sections, rather than a twisting action. I used them recently on a muddy walk and they were a godsend; I'll get a bit more experience with them and then I can decide if I want to spend much more on a pair that justify their price. I gave them 4 stars because I think they are great value, but not perfect.

2.0 out of 5 stars Broke on its first use 10 July 2012
By gfc3004
Verified Purchase
I bought these compact poles so that they would fit INSIDE by pack as I was going on a ridge walk and wanted to minimise the kit etc on the outside,,I had to use them on a descent over scree, the poles were not fully extended but on placing it on to a rock, the bottom (thinnest section) buckled,,,this was not on a particulary steep section and under nothing like excessive weight. Really not happy as had to continue a tricky descent with my one remaining pole!

2.0 out of 5 stars Uncomfortable 29 Jun 2014
My last Trekrites were excellent but these are lighter and less sturdy. The sections slide apart too easily when released. The grips are awkwardly shaped and the straps which are a composite of neoprene seem to have no adjustment. Mine broke on the second use. They are the most uncomfortable poles I've ever had.
