Whether for support on those long days of hiking or rigging a tarp for a good night's sleep, trekking poles are a worthy addition to your kit list... especially if they weigh as little as the CarbonLongs do!
CarbonLong is a 3-section trekking pole that extends to 150 cm and weighs just 215 grams. We designed it to have a greater extension range for two main reasons: to give a better fit for taller trekkers and to let you rig your tarp high enough to sit comfortably underneath for a bit of shelter. They're lightweight, easily adjustable, incredibly sturdy, and ace for hike-thrus and long-distance trails.
Constructed from carbon fibre, CarbonLong is highly corrosion resistant and durable, with an excellent strength-to-weight ratio. Longer trekking poles can be more prone to snapping as the stress placed on the lower section is greater, so we've used aluminium for this section to make the CarbonLong incredibly strong and durable.
The EVA foam handles absorb less water than other materials, making them ideal for those not-so-fine weather days. What they do absorb is shock and vibration – making them super comfy on long treks and effective in injury prevention. An optional extended handle is available to save you from adjusting your pole length every time the gradient changes.
The CarbonLong has a stiff and durable tungsten tip to increase grip and avoid slipping on hard and rocky surfaces. It also comes with a rubber tip and trekking basket, so you can change your setup according to the terrain.

Great hiking pole
Very lightweight and very sturdy, the Carbonlong has exceeded my expectations. The grip is comfortable even after hours of continuous use, and the thinnest section being made out of aluminium means you get toughness and durability where you need it, while still getting the weight advantage of a two-thirds carbon fibre construction. It's such a good idea, I'm amazed you don't see it more often! An excellent hiking pole, and highly recommended.
