Trekking Poles
Trekking poles help improve balance on uneven ground and can reduce impact on your legs, knees, ankles and feet by up to 40% which is something every backpacker appreciates. They improve your walking or running rhythm which can improve your speed. We develop poles for weight, strength, comfort and ease-of-adjustment.

Shox poles are our go-to poles for trekking and hill walking. With shock absorbing handles, these poles reduce fatigue on the trail. But don't be fooled by the price tag, they are comfortable, durable, supportive and well-balanced.

Compact Ultra poles are ultra compact aluminium poles with snap lock mechanism and Nordic style hand grips. Ideal where carrying space is of importance as they can be easily stored in a day pack.

Carbon trekking poles are strong, save you a considerable amount of weight and look so cool. Talking of lightweight ... they are just 136 g each making them unofficially lighter than the official lightest trekking pole on the market today. Collapsing to just 66cm they fit a range of packs and store away easily, grab a set to assist your long distance walks and trail running adventures.
