CarbonLite Bend

Breaking point

As you will see from the video Jim under estimated the strength of our poles.

To view the film you will need Quicktime installed. [3.3MB]

Conclusion

The trekking pole reached a maximum deflection of 57mm under a load of 22kg. This was not sufficient to snap the pole so the test will be repeated once the test equipment has been upgraded. Jim [April 2005]

Further information

Due to a price increase in raw materials we have decided to discontinue this product in the short term. We hope it will be possible to reintroduce this product in the future.
