A great pole from Raidlight for anyone wanting a lightweight carbon option that is still stiff and strong. These confidence inspiring, telescopic poles are simple to use and great to take along and any trip you might need use them on.
If light weight and strength are key criteria for you then the new Vertical Carbon 3 poles are a great choice.
Ideal for trail hiking, the Vertical Carbon 3 strand poles are the lightest and most versatile of our Vertical range. 80% carbon with an integrated locking system - "R -lock" , these poles take up minimum space when they are not in use (62cm). They also feature a lightweight EVA foam grip that improves traction and comfort . This is an essential accessory to relieve stress on your lower body during trail runs! The length of the poles are adjustable between 105 – 135cm.
The Vertical Carbon 3 Trekking Poles Raidlight are surprisingly stiff and strong for what you expect from carbon poles. With two flick lock closures which are quick and easy to use these telescopic poles can be extended for use or packed away without the usual messing around. This makes them ideal for running or events where you need poles but don't need them in use all the time.
The foam handles are a bit stiff for my liking but they are very durable. The super light straps are easily adjusted and although they don't look much they are really comfortable, especially when you are working hard. They come with removable rubber tips (covering the tungsten carbide tips) and small baskets that screw on or off for your needs.
