Carbon Fiber Trekking Pole
These things are sweet. Light as a feather, and stiff as a board. I love the additional grip down low under the handles. Adds way more versatility on steeper grades.
Don’t tackle peaks and valleys alone, always take a friend, and in this case take two! Our trekking poles are made from ultralight, ultra-strong carbon fiber, with sturdy clasp locking mechanisms. They have a foam or cork handle for a comfortable sweat free grip.
In addition to being fantastic trekking poles, they can also be used to set up all of our Plex tents excluding the Altaplex.

Good but not great
I purchased this item to support my zpacks duplex. Within the first 15 mins of our hike I lost the rubber tips at the bottom of the pole. I am now left with metal clicking on rocks. Otherwise poles seem to be doing well.
I tried to love these
I also have an arc blast pack which I love. But zpacks needs t stick with what they do best. Slapping their name on a pole doesn't look good. It's a light pole but too much plastic. The flick locks break down, again top much plastic. I've had to replace the carbon tips 3 times in each pole because they snap.
Review of Carbon fiber trekking pole
One of the poles snapped in half after three weeks on a through-hike
Very sturdy poles
These poles are customizable and very sturdy. I love the cork handle.
Their light and pretty tough nice too have as a backup for a tarp setup
