The Compact 4 is the little brother to the best-selling compact model. It weighs in at a very light 169g and due to the four section design it can be collapsed down to a minimalist 49cm!
Constructed from super light but very durable 7001 aluminium alloy, the poles feature a comfortable EVA hand grip and a wrist strapped lined with neoprene for support and a softer feel on the skin. The tip is made from carbide and the poles come with a 50mm trekking basket and rubber tip protector as standard. 85mm winter baskets and powder baskets are also available as an optional extra. Supplied as a pair.
