Ridgeline series poles balance light weight with the strength for trekking, mountain and ski in arduous day trips or week long treks. The Helinox DL135 uses the twice the vertical lever system to adjust the length (DL Dual Lever).
Helinox Ridgeline Trekking Poles are great all-purpose adjustable length poles well suited to a wide range of uses from casual day walks to challenging multi-day hikes.
The larger diameter compared to the Passport range provides better resistance to flexing under load. Several different locking mechanisms are featured in the Ridgeline range.
Ridgeline FL poles feature a twist lock action (Friction Lock) while the LB and LBB series use a combination of Lever and Button locks for super fast deployment and compact packed length.
Sold as a pair.
Helinox's Ridgeline poles are their mid-weight, mid-range poles for 'week long treks or arduous day trips, mountain, ski and trekking'. So they aren't as light as the passport series, nor do they pack as small, but they are a superb trekking pole - why? Because the external locking mechanism is the easiest I've used, I have no doubt they are extremely tough (because the much lighter Helinox Passport series are tough), and they have a good quality foam grip that's ridged down the shaft for extra grip when you're pulling up a steep incline.
Buy these if weight isn't vital but strength and ease of use is.
