CarbonLite walking pole - one of the lightest fully-featured poles on the market!
This 3 section walking pole is fully constructed from carbon fibre, making it uber-light with a high strength to weight ratio and excellent corrosion resistance.

The sections adjust with a very sturdy twist-lock mechanism so there is no slippage.
The tip is composed of tungsten which has much greater strength and stiffness than many other usable metals. The EVA foam hand grips have low water absorption but offer excellent impact and vibration absorption as well as thermal insulation properties.
