Walking and Trekking Poles
Poles aren't just for people with dodgy knees or poor walking technique. Walking poles help you walk and run better; they improve balance on uneven ground and can reduce the impact on your legs, knees, ankles and feet by up to 40%. They help you carry a heavy rucksack which is something every backpacker appreciates. They improve your rhythm so you can go faster. We developed the best lightweight trekking poles for support, weight, strength, comfort and ease-of-adjustment whether you are hillwalking, alpine trekking or running an ultra.
