These Supalite Ti trekking poles from Brasher have a good pack-down size, are lightweight and very comfortable. Although there’s no plastic grip to help undo/tighten the bottom section, the basket is fixed so can double up for the job. There’s no anti-shock, and care is needed when dismantling for drying, as there are loose bits of plastic that can be easily lost – a slight negative on an otherwise excellent pole. Maximum-minimum length (65-140cm) is wider than most, which offers a little more height adjustment.
Verdict: Very competent poles and well worth the higher price bracket. No anti-shock, but equipped with all the necessary features. Good pack-down size and quite light too. Buy them and you won’t be disappointed.
Length: 65-140cm (three sections)
