I was not impressed with these poles. In the two months I've had them one of the locks snapped in half on a leasurely hike, the poles collapse regularily, I've had trouble getting the poles to lock, and the compass broke. Not reliable poles at all.
Here's what other sites are saying:
Slim, trim and oh-so-strong, these lightweight, compact poles feature Titanal construction and DuoLock locking mechanisms. Two locks are better than one! When locked with the same torque, DouLock expanders can take up to 80% more weight. One of the strongest aluminum alloys around, the mechanical properties of Titanal are comparable to steel--with only a third of the weight! Titanal is strong, lightweight and highly resistant to abrasion and corrosion. Three-section poles feature ultra-light foam contoured grips; extended grip length allows lower hand placement suitable for short, steep ascents. Comfortable compact strap helps alleviate stress on wrists and hands. Includes trekking baskets and tungsten carbide tips.
