early days and I am not an experienced user of nordic walking poles. However, they are light weight and easily adjustable. I need some rubber boots for them as i will be using them on very firm compacted crushed rock tracks.
Fantastically light with small hand grips. Love the adjustability and the durability of these. Great combination of light and durable.
I have small hands and these poles have an incredibly comfortable grip. They are extremely lightweight but very stable, and the locking mechanism is easy to use. A great success!!
Simple and easy to adjust length yet strong, comfortable on the hands, anti-shock system feels good. Early days yet but I'm impressed.
I have hiked with trekking poles for many years and have not experienced 'shock' poles and wonder if I should stick to the rigid type as I heard the shock poles are not as stable in water crossing or loose rocks downhill.
The 'shock' in some trekking poles is great for damping vibration and providing a bit of give if you happen to plant a pole particulary hard. I don't think I'd say they would perform dramatically different to a rigid pole in those specific situations. They do add a bit of weight to the pole as well. If you've always been happy with rigid walking poles I'd stick with what you know!
The price is for the pair of Women's Trail Pro Shock Trekking poles.
Unfortunately while bush walking, the bottom lock of one of the poles opened and I lost the 3rd part of the pole (with the tip). Is it possible to buy that missing part?
I've had a chat to the supplier, and they've said they're going to need a few more details from you so they can figure out whether they can get a spare in for you. If you could email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with a few pics of your pole along with your contact information, then we'll be able to look into this for you Francoise.
I want to use them on sidewalks
Yes you can Jennifer, we stock the Black Diamond Rubber Tech Tips which you can find here.
I was just wondering if you supplied hiking poles for kids? I have a keen 9 year old. Or will these shorten enough for our daughter. (average height for a 9 yr old)
I can't say I've ever heard of trekking poles for kids sorry Joanne. Most of the poles we sell retract down to around 65 cm though, which should be plenty short enough for a child of 9 years, and plenty of adjustment for them to grow in to.
