Weighing less than a pound per pair, Komperdell C3 Carbon Powerlock poles are among the lightest trekking poles on the market. These carbon-fiber, three-section poles also feature easy-to-use external locking mechanisms.
C3 Carbon Powerlock trekking poles feature Komperdell's EVA Full Foam 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 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 (27.2"-57") and snap the tab back into place.
C3 Carbon Powerlock 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.

Likes: Weight is perfect. Durable and the lock system is positive. The handles are perfect. I've only used these in cold weather but can't wait to use them when it warms up.
Likes: adjustable to length for my height of 6'2". Also liked the ability to adjust and use as poles for differing height in setting up my tarp tent
Dislikes: No complaints so far
