Product Highlights

An excellent balance of weight (14.46 ounces per pair) and year-round performance, Exped Alpine 140 trekking poles incorporate ergonomic, extended length grips, easy-to-use locking mechanisms and lightweight DAC aluminum construction. Three telescoping pole sections allow the Alpine 140 to collapse down small while providing a broad range of adjustability (41"-55").

A push button mechanism easily engages the "non slip grooves" locking system, allowing for quick adjustments. Internal expanders provide a confident lock so sections aren't susceptible to slippage while in use. Housed within the shaft sections, the mechanisms are protected from dirt and debris. The streamlined design of the locking mechanisms allow the Alpine 140 poles to collapse all the way down to 24".

Lightweight EVA foam grips provide contoured, comfortable handholds. These textured grips extend far down the upper pole sections, allowing you to adjust where you grasp the Alpine 140 poles while eliminating the need to shorten or extend the poles each time you encounter a steep slope. Padded, adjustable webbing straps help to reduce stress on your wrists.

Press-fit carbide Flex Tips work in tandem with low-profile trekking baskets to provide Alpine 140 poles with optimal backcountry traction. Adding versatility, swappable Snow Baskets and Clip Powder Baskets are included for use in snow and varied conditions.

    Likes: Easy to use. Fairly lightweight. Construction seem to be good

    Dislikes: The pole baskets do not clip onto each other very easily for storage.
