With a design focused on collapsibility and packability, Exped Explorer 130 trekking poles weigh just 14.46 ounces per pair and feature 4 telescoping aluminum sections that provide a broad range of adjustability (41"-51") while packing down small enough to fit inside your pack or luggage. The Explorer 130 is a great option for far-ranging adventurers.
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. Together, the streamlined locking mechanisms and four individual pole sections allow the Explorer 130 poles to collapse all the way down to 20.5".
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 Explorer 130 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 Explorer 130 poles with optimal backcountry traction. Adding versatility, swappable Snow Baskets and Clip Powder Baskets are included for use in snow and varied conditions.
