When space is at a premium, choose the 3-part Komperdell Carbon Ultralite Vario 4 Compact trekking poles. They're adjustable, foldable and lightweight-ideal for hiking, backpacking and traveling.
The Komperdell Carbon Ultralite Vario 4 Compact Trekking Poles are best suited for backpacking trips and hikes with long approaches where the need for extra stabilization comes and goes. Unlike most adjustable poles that have just a telescoping shaft, the Vario 4 also sports a four-section folding system that minimizes extra material and allows the pole to pack down to just over a foot in length. And at just over six ounces per pole, the Carbon Ultralite Vario 4 is Komperdell's lightest trekking pole, so it won't weigh you down on multi-day treks. Carbon keeps the poles light, yet extremely stiff for reliable support. Carbon is also corrosion resistant and won't stick when you're trying to adjust it. The Power Lock 3. 0 locking system ensures that your poles stay at the desired length and won't slip under pressure, and it's easy to use even with gloves on during fall and winter excursions. Padded straps and extended grips help you keep a secure, comfortable grip on steep and rocky sections. The tungsten and carbide tip is hard enough to use on tough glacier snow and packed dirt trails alike, and the Ice Flex basket keeps your pole from digging too deep.
