Komperdell Trekking Poles
AS Wimbledon fortnight approaches, it's worth noting that the trekking world owes a nod of thanks to the Murrays and Haleps et al who'll soon be gracing the courts of SW19.
These ultralight, foldable trekking poles, weighing only 450g per pair for the Sonic Alu and 377g per pair for the Sky Carbon, pack down to just 36cm in length and come with a handy storage bag.
The ergonomic handles with adjustable leashes guarantee comfort with gloves or bare hands in all conditions. The inner cord is plastic coated for fluid assembly and disassembly and feature a micro-adjustable tensioning system to guarantee a tight assembly with each use. The upper segment features a functional locking system that allows the poles to be adjusted from 115 to 135 cm with ease and locked securely in position. For the Sky Carbon poles, carbon fibre is used in the 4 upper segments for lightweight rigidity and aluminium is used in the lower segment for critical strength where the poles contact the ground. With three baskets to suit all conditions and durable carbide tips, these poles are the perfect companion for everything from trail running, hiking or mountaineering.
