Very easy to adjust and very lightweight. These are perfect for taking some strain off the knees on steep descents and for additional stability on slick terrain. So far, VERY pleased with these poles!

    In some ways these are great poles. They are light and strong. They open and close easily and they have comfortable grips. The tips, however, are a problem. They have a different design than most Komperdell poles. One tip broke off after only ~100 miles and the other is loose. Komperdell has a good warranty, so I sent them in for repair. I hope they set me right.

    I love these things. The twist lock mechanism is very quick to adjust, and the cork handles are very comfortable. I'd recommend them to anyone.

    Got two pairs for us. We really enjoyed them. After taking on Mt Charleston without poles we were eager to hike Zion with them. They worked well. Definitely helped up the cliff and valley sides. A aware that if You have never used poles they really will work your neck and back, or maybe we were using them wrong

    Love these new trekking poles. Very comfortable and highly adjustable to fit just about anyone. The cork handles are comfortable and take a good hike with use to start properly fitting my hand. Overall great product and highly recommended!

    Wish I could say these are the greatest but I haven't had the opportunity to try them yet! Give me two weeks and I'll be trying them on a 14er in CO. My husband has a similar pair and they've been a leg saver on the downhills. These are lightweight and easily adjustable and adjust to a very small size for storage. Can't wait to try them. Gave them 5 stars just because they look like and feel like they're perfect for what I intended and the description is accurate.

  • “How do I get the plastic tip covers off?”
    Asked by Colorfulchica from High Peaks on 8/12/2014 2:00:05 PM
    • The plastic tips are a snug fit and proved a feat for me at first. If you will grip the tip completely in one hand and hold the handle grip at the top in the other, you can gradually move it back and forth and loose the tip. Pull your arms apart as you do this and it will eventually slide off.

      It is a snug fit to protect the tip. Hope this works. These are great poles. I keep mine in my car at all times!

    • Sorry, I just left them on.
      Answered on 8/12/2014 2:20:29 PM by sparksant from New Mexico
    • They are on tight, but only held on with friction. Take a good pair of channel lock (ViseGrip) pliers and twist to first break the connection between the tip and the pole. Once broken, just gradually work the protective tip off, twisting the vice grips in just one direction.

      The good news is that the tips don't fall off in the future while storing the poles.

    • Grab on tight....then twist, pry, and pull that sucker off. You may want to use a pair of pliers, but I got them off by hand.

  • “Will these fit in a suitcase?”
    Asked by Travel girl from Colorado on 9/1/2013 8:51:40 PM
    • When the poles are collapsed they are only 25 inches long. If your suit case is longer than 25 inches they would fit.
