CarbonLite walking poles- unofficially lighter than the official lightest walking pole!

These 3 section walking poles are fully constructed from carbon fibre, making them uber-light with a high strength to weight ratio and excellent corrosion resistance. The 3 sections allow the pole to be shortened to 63 cm so that it can be effortlessly strapped to your rucksack ready for use. The sections adjust with a very sturdy twist-lock mechanism so there is no slippage.  

The tip is composed of tungsten which has much greater strength and stiffness than many other usable metals. The EVA foam hand grips have low water absorption but offer excellent impact and vibration absorption as well as thermal insulation properties. The wrist straps reduce fatigue- they are easily adjustable with gloved hands with a simple pull motion and encompass EVA foam for added comfort.

CarbonLites come with Chamoix trekking baskets and rubber feet to stop that bothersome clinking on hard ground! CarbonLite Ultras are also available singly.

Excellent lightweight poles

Superb lightweight poles at the right price. You don't have to worry about extra weight with these. This means you can take them every time. I had an issue with the end falling off one, alpkit customer care was superb, sent me a replacement bottom section no problem, so they are back up and running again, can't recommend alll alpkit gear highly enough. Back Britain; buy from a British company with some manufacturing here.

Absolutely Brilliant

Just got back from thru hiking the Appalachian Trail with my wife. We both used these poles and they performed exceptionally well. Over 5+ months of hard hiking, the locking mechanism only slipped once on one of the poles. The tips wore out but were easily replaced and a strap on one pole came loose when the plastic catch broke. Despite getting jammed between rocks and roots on numerous occasions they never bent or broke despite having a fair amount of weight on them.
We also used them as tent poles and prior to going on the AT in May had used them on the Pennine Way in April.
Cannot recommend them highly enough (and will be sending a couple of pairs to friends in the US who were extremely envious).

Perfect poles

I used these poles for a couple of weeks on the SW coast path and they were brilliant - they are super light and very strong, they were a lifesaver going up and down those hills. I have some cheap heavy poles which do the job but these are heaps better. And everyone I met had pole envy!

Amazingly light, Very strong

Very lightweight but still strong enough to hold up my MLD Duomid tent, even in gusting winds. Initial concerns over their durability were unfounded and they continue to perform well (we've just bought a second pair so we now have a set each!).

Short review + photo's

We're very happy with them and would recommend them to anyone.

Perfectly Light and Strong

These are the first poles I've used for walking. I got them primarily as they were cheap and needed a set to hold my shelter up.

Since owning them, they come on every walk. I dont use them all the time, mainly on hills and rocky downhill stretches and they work very well.

They hold my Trailstar up well and have put up with some pretty windy conditions.

Very impressed

Peak Walker
Perfect trekking partner

I've been using them over a year now for multi-day treks in the Lakes, doing the GR20 with a heavy pack and in the peaks. They're fantastic - very lightweight, strong and comfortable to use

Best poles in 10 years

Held my mate's poles as she climbed over a stile, and couldn't believe how much lighter hers were than mine. Bought myself a pair asap, did 30miles in the Pentlands with them and then the Cateran Yomp (54 miles over 24 hours). I love them. They weigh NOTHING. Most comfortable poles ever. How can something so light be so sturdy?

they keep collapsing

Used them on a few walls and everytime they collapse down every half hour or so .. I've neatly fallen a few times .. very dissapointed that the lock mechanism just doesn't seem to hold ... I've used cheap poles for years with no problems ... I have requested a refund .. its dangerous to use poles that collapse ..

Not sure about these

Wonderfully light, and cheap, but one broke on its second outing. It was a minor stumble on soft ground, with little force. I don't think a metal pole would have bent, never mind break. It broke through the middle section, so I can't just get a new lower bit. I'm buying a new one, as I think they still have a place for backpacking in grassy territory, but I wouldn't go near rocky terrain with them.

Chris Townsend takes a look at the CarbonLite Ultra poles for the first time and blown away by their simplicity, functionality and great value price.

If you want functional ultralight poles at a good price, the Alpkit CarbonLite Ultra can't be beaten.
