First time user of trekking poles. Found these to be easy to operate and fit the bill.

  • Easy to adjust

Cons

Easily adjusted, locking seems secure. Good traction on slippery rock. Easy to use.

Sturdy with adjustment for every condition and individual.

Pros

  • Adjustability
  • Price
  • Robust construction
  • Lightweight

Bought new after using a couple other brands.

These are lightweight and fully adjustable.

Padded wristbands. Enjoyed using them first time out.

Also like the ergonomic hand grip, although I did not think I would.

Recommend this product for the avid hiker or the beginner. Money well spent.

Hiking/trekking poles, shock absorbing.

Pros

  • Positive length adjustment locks
  • Very compact when completely collapsed
  • Infinitely variable length adjustment to almost 4 feet

Cons

  • None

Exceptional hiking/trekking poles. 

Aluminum construction

Three section, twist to unlock, extend, and lock. VERY good lock. I'm 200+ pounds and the locks have never failed on me. 

Infinite length adjustment (you're not limited to pre-made detents) out to almost 4 feet.

I use the wrist straps most when pushing up difficult terrain. The straps are also very secure and the lock on those has never failed either.

The shock absorbers are also very handy in some situations. They are quite stiff, and I have to bear down on them with a lot of weight to make them move, but that's great for me. I don't want them bouncing. They are stiff enough to help me recoil from a fall.

I've owned these poles for almost 10 years and they are still hiking strong! Just put another 15 miles on them this past weekend on a pretty hilly/rough trail.
