Komperdell Ridgehiker Cork Powerlock Compact trekking poles are an excellent balance of price, performance and ease of use. The aluminum poles provide the stability and balance needed for confident on and off-trail hiking.
Three telescoping sections are constructed of a sturdy aluminum alloy. The hiqh-frequency welded and drawn tubes are strong, lightweight and corrosion-resistant. Compact ergonomic cork grips include integrated woven straps that help to reduce stress on your wrists.
The external locks found on the Ridgehiker Cork 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.
A pair of Vario trekking baskets is included for improved traction. Optional winter and deep powder baskets (sold separately) are available to convert Ridgehiker Cork Powerlock Compact poles for use in snow and on ice. 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: Overall these poles are a great product. Light and easy to adjust on the go. I highly recommend the cork grips over rubber.
