Product Highlights

At a mere 12.3 ounces per pair, Komperdell C3 Carbon Powerlock Compact trekking poles are among the lightest trekking poles on the market. Compared to standard men's models, these carbon-fiber poles are lighter, shorter and equipped with a slimmer grip that is more comfortable for women or men with smaller hands.

C3 Carbon Powerlock Compact trekking poles feature Komperdell's EVA Full Foam Compact Grips. These soft, streamlined grips are shock absorbing and their 8-degree corrective angle reduces strain on the wrists. Integrated straps further save your wrists from undue stress.

The external locks found on the C3 Carbon Powerlock Compact are far easier to adjust than the internal locking mechanisms used on many telescoping poles. Simply push open the locking tab, adjust the poles to the required length (21.3"-47.2") and snap the tab back into place.

C3 Carbon Powerlock Compact trekking poles can be converted for winter use by replacing the summer trekking baskets (included) with one of the several styles of snow baskets (sold separately). The Tungsten/Carbide flex tips are designed to flex if the tip of the pole should get stuck, helping to protect the shafts from structural damage.

Komperdell C3 Carbon Powerlock Compact trekking poles are sold in pairs.

    Likes: Great polls. 175 gm (6.15 oz) per pole, so pretty light. Adjustable 3 section pole 54.6 cm (21.5 inches) collapsed and 120 cm (47 inches) fully extended. Has a lever clamp type lock so no worries about loosening. The bottom section extends all the way out to it's max and then the adjustment for the length is made by locking the second section at the appropriate height. Very clean. Grips are smaller as this is a women's pole, but I have small hands for a guy and the grips are just fine for me. The general circumference of the grips is 9.5cm (3.75 inches) although that varies along their length a little as there is a bit of knurling. The carbon fiber seems to absorb shock so they ride smooth.

    Dislikes: Would not work well for tall individual or someone with large hands. But that is sizing and no fault of the poles.

    Likes: Unbelievably lught and so far pretty durable.

    Dislikes: Only thing that toom ambitmto get used to was no markings on the lower section to measure the height. Not a big deal, but you just needm to keep that section all the way out.
