Poles perform different functions in different sports. While hiking poles, for example, should provide additional support and grip, alpine poles help to achieve optimal balance when skiing.
Most commonly, poles are made of aluminum or carbon. Every material has its advantages and disadvantages. Carbon poles are very resistant and also lighter than aluminum poles. The disadvantage of carbon is that it can break through immediately and does not bend like an aluminum stick.
Innovative technologies such as TriggerShark (2.0), Thermo Long, Speed Lock (2), changing baskets, adjustable straps and cork grips provide more safety and comfort.
Nowadays, folding poles are very popular. The poles can be adapted to the individual body size and stored after use quickly and easily in the backpack.
