A great pole from Raidlight for anyone wanting a lightweight carbon option that is still stiff and strong. These confidence inspiring, telescopic poles are simple to use and great to take along and any trip you might need use them on.
With the R-lock system these telescopic poles easily adjust to your height, giving you versatility for a small pack size, light weight and unmatched strength. At 190 grams it is one of the lightest carbon quick lock poles available.
The 2019 Vertical Carbon 3 Trekking Poles Raidlight are surprisingly stiff and strong for what you expect from carbon poles. With two flick lock closures which are quick and easy to use these telescopic poles can be extended for use or packed away without the usual messing around. This makes them ideal for running or events where you need poles but don't need them in use all the time.
The foam handles are a bit stiff for my liking but they are very durable. The super light straps are easily adjusted and although they don't look much they are really comfortable, especially when you are working hard. They come with removable rubber tips (covering the tungsten carbide tips) and small baskets that screw on or off for your needs.
