York Nordic Bamboo & Carbon Fiber Trekking Poles - Ultralight & Collapsible - Flip-Lock, Comfort Grips, & Tungsten Tips
New Hybrid Bamboo - Carbon Fiber - Aluminum Poles Love to walk and love to travel? Then these poles are for you. The team at York Nordic has created these 3-section travel poles weighing less than 1 pound total for the busy traveler.
The poles telescope to just 24 inches and include their own Velcro strap and carrying case for easy storage in your backpack. Once expanded they extend from 24 to 53 inches.
Our poles are made from 80% carbon fiber and feature a vintage-looking bamboo top section of pole. Bamboo is a sustainable and responsible choice. Our exclusive hand tighten flip locks quickly snap the sections of pole into place.
All poles come with a screw on 'basket' for snow and sand walking and a solid tungsten steel tip. We've even included detachable rubber feet; perfect for street walking. Using these trekking poles help you burn 40% more calories than regular walking. Gain balance and stability after joint replacement, or just reduce the stress on your knees, hips and back.
This product came with cracked plastic pieces that allow the telescoping and the snow basked came off the second time we used these. I'm not sure if the basket broke or unscrewed but we were not able to locate it. The poles are lightweight which is their best feature.
I originally gave these 1 star due to no response from the owner but since she has contacted me and has made everything correct. She genuinely cares about her customers and was very helpful. I would definitely recommend anyone to buy these poles especially when the company stands behind them so well. Thank you Lauren!!
With only one moderate snow of note, the review is of a limited experience. Nonetheless, the performance has been at least as good as that of Komperdell and Leki Trekking Poles that I have used. The fixation system for the Nordic poles is adjustable, stable and has robust function. My experience with Komperdell has noted some loss of hold in one pole and need to reinforce this juncture with loss of the telescoping feature. The particular Leki poles had one partially lose its rotational hold with subsequent flexion failure at one joint that currently requires repair-should I decide this to even be worthwhile. I would hesitate to say that I have as much time using these as I would like for this review, but see little likelihood of any better-experienced review until next Winter. With the incomplete nature of my experience, I caution those reading to seek confirmation by others.
I love these poles. I have just reached the age where hiking poles become necessary (not just an option). These are lightweight... and three different pole tips to choose from. Already lots of comments from fellow backpackers.
Great product I have a disability and I feel very supported using these
While it seems kind of weird to say this about sporting equipment, these are really pretty poles. They just look and feel really elegant-and so light! They are also ridiculously easy to telescope up and down (takes about 1 second). Once you get the tension right, you just snap and go, they stay locked throughout your whole walk. I like that they come with the big fat stability tips, those are my favorite for walking. If the fatties are not your thing, you can easily remove them and just use the tungsten tips.
