These are my first poles and I’m really impressed with how much they lighten the work. Feels like they take 10 pounds off me! My 6 year old son loves collapsing them to use as well. The quick change lever is great for transitioning from uphill to downhill.
These trekking poles have been a great investment. They are adjustable, sturdy, and have provided great support going up and down hills and on rough terrain. The cork grips are very comfortable and there are wrist straps to help keep from dropping them.
