The Corklites feature contoured and tilted handles and feel incredibly comfortable in the hand. The natural cork composite is grippy and doesn’t feel cold when held with bare hands in cooler weather. The straps are broad, well-padded and easy to adjust. Performance-wise, they are light, strong and easy to handle. They extend to a lanky 135cm and compact to 61cm for carrying, but the unique Super Lock system doesn’t always bite when trying to tighten the poles in a hurry, and a careful, bit by bit approach is needed if changing settings radically. Otherwise, pretty much perfect.
