How do I assemble my new trekking poles?

Please review this video for detailed assembly instructions. The video describes the process for our Tri-Fold Alloy UL trekking poles, but the assembly instructions for the Tri-Fold Carbon Cork trekking poles are exactly the same.

If you prefer written instructions that you can print at home and keep with you, you can find a set at this link.

How do I know which length is right for me?

To be completely sure which length is right for you, we recommend performing the following measurement: Stand with your elbow at a 90-degree angle and measure the vertical distance from the floor to the top of your hand. This length will be the ideal trekking pole length on level terrain. Compare the length that you measured to the two trekking pole lengths that we offer to figure out which would be more appropriate for you.

When should I be using the various tips that are provided?

We recommend using the bare tungsten carbide tips on natural trails. They will provide the best "bite" and support. The rubber tips are best for paved surfaces or very rocky terrain, where the carbide tips could slip and also wear prematurely. Finally, the trekking baskets are great for soft dirt, mud, or packed snow to prevent the trekking poles from sinking too far into the ground. We recommend dedicated snow baskets if you intend to snowshoe in deep powder.

Do you sell replacement parts, like rubber tips and trekking baskets?

Yes, we sell 4-packs of replacement rubber tips and trekking baskets. We also sell dedicated snowshoeing baskets that are larger and more flexible than the trekking baskets. Finally, we sell replacement bottom sections that can be swapped out if you wear out the carbide tungsten tips. You can find all of our trekking pole accessories here.

Can I bring my trekking poles in my carry-on?

We've never had any trouble bringing trekking poles in a carry-on and most customers have also reported doing this successfully. However, we hesitate to guarantee that you won't have any issues because every TSA agent is different and could implement different policies. As a result, we recommend that you're prepared to check the carry-on bag in the unlikely scenario that you're not allowed to bring the trekking poles onto the plane.

Can't do without

I've owned a pair for a little over a year now and use them whenever I venture out. They are sturdy, light, compact and versatile. I don't know how I managed with out them all these years. I did make one addition to the poles, a protruding screw in the top of each for the grommet or tie-off of tarps/tent. Learned real quick not to put the handle down, critters love the salt in the cork.

High Quality, Low Price

Im in my 30s and thought that trekking poles were for older people or those with knee issues for hiking. I am wrong. I decided to try trekking poles and it has changed my backpacking experience. I came across these after ten hours of online research and have come to the conclusion that this is one of the best quality trekking poles for the price. Something like these poles cost $40-60 more. I got the larger set. I am 6 feet tall. I highly recommend these trekking poles.

BEST Poles ever

I bought a pair for my husband for Xmas. The next year I bought a pair for myself. We use these year round, great in snow. These are an essential for all our hiking holidays. The year I broke my ankle, these helped me explore Sedona, Zion, Superior hiking trail, Bryce and the Smokey Mountains. I won't hike without them! My mom bought a pair from a large camping store and these are 20x better.. I'm upgrading hers soon!

Light weight and functional

Exactly what I needed. I’m sure my wife and family members will want to “borrow” these from me.

Very Happy - And Glad to Be in One Piece Myself

Tri-fold, cork handled trekking poles have performed wonderfully. I broke one on my first hike with them during a fall where it took all of my weight and prevented serious injury in very rugged terrain. It gave its all! Thanks to Paria's great customer service who replaced the broken pole for free in just a couple of days! Subsequent hikes have been less exciting, but great with these strong, packable, light weight poles.
