Raidlight's Compact Carbon Ultra Evo Poles are very stiff and have a solid feel to them as carbon poles. The thickness of the poles adds to the stiffness without adding weight making these more reliable on tricky terrain when you need to rely on them. They are very light weight and fold into three sections with a pack size under 40cm. They simply pull out and click into place with a single button on the top section locking it in meaning that there's not much to go wrong with them.
If you are looking for poles for trail or mountain running then these are a great choice. They have ergonomically shaped foam handles with super light, soft straps for your hands and a shaped basket all with weight saving in mind. The strap to keep them tied together when folded wraps neatly around the handle and within the foam so it doesn't stick out and catch on anything.
