These Supertrekker trekking poles span a useful range of around 100cm-135cm and are comfortable to use, with a shapely EVA handle that extends down the top of the shaft, and a nice soft strap. Although one of the heavier models on the market, it performs admirably with a good anti-shock device that can be turned on and off and a reliable twist-lock mechanism that allows little slippage.
