"These poles are really great. I only use them for hiking. The design provides a lot of strength and they will not collapse, or haven't yet anyway. I needed reliability and the capacity for lot of"... (read full reviews)

"I purchased these poles literally days before a 3 day speed hike on the West Coast trail. Little did I know they we're not a "nice" thing to have - they were essential. The weight makes them nearly"... (read full reviews)

"Pole is sturdy and light. The only problem is with the locking holes that have sharp edges. The sharp burrs should be sanded down at the factory before painting. It's possible to cut your hand if the"... (read full reviews)

"These fit my New Balance walking poles. The inside diameter of the tip opening is 11mm, so probably would fit poles with 10-12 mm tips. If loose just use a bit of electrical tape or silicone to take"... (read full reviews)

"The poles were designed to stabilise (and at worse prevent falls) and prevent strain on the knees, and I would not trust with either. I extended the pole a little with room to spare to descend a"... (read full reviews)
