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.
