We are super-excited to introduce our first product, the Tri-Fold Carbon Cork Trekking Poles! This is a culmination of endless hours of work to design a truly awesome product.
We wanted to create a compact set of poles that you can bring along with you on day hikes or multi-day backpacking trips and not have to worry about bulk and weight. The poles have a unique tri-fold design that allows them to fold down to just 15 inches in length, or about 40 percent less than most traditional telescoping poles. Due to the carbon fiber shafts, each pole comes in at just 9 ounces, which will reduce arm fatigue during a long day of hiking.
We wanted to use durable materials so that you could count on their performance. We use super-strong carbon fiber shafts but also reinforce them with 7000-series aluminum at the connector points to ensure added durability. They will not let you down on the trail! The syncork handle provides all the benefits of real cork but is more durable and better for the environment. An added bonus is that cork-eating marmots will stay away.
We wanted to make them adjustable so that you can really leverage them during both uphill climbs and downhill descents. The easy flick-lock mechanism allows you to easily change the length on the trail. The handle also incorporates a foam choke-grip which allows added flexibility. This means that you will be able to use your upper body to help on steep climbs and take pressure off the knees on long descents.
We wanted to make them affordable so that they were accessible to everyone. Being true to our goal of empowering everyone to get out and enjoy the outdoors, we didn't want to create something that drained your wallet.
We hope that we've created something that will excite you and encourage you to get out there!
