Why Use Trekking Poles?
- Reduce impact of trekking or walking on knees, back, and hips
- Increase speed, balance, and security
- Get more traction and points of contact, crucial on muddy or steep terrains
- Great walking aid if recovering from injury or have balance issues
- Can deflect shrubbery or act as a probe for puddles, quicksand, etc
- Defense against bears and other wildlife
- Can double as tent poles
Advantages of Aluminum 7075
While carbon fiber is lighter than aluminum, it does not perform very well under lateral pressure. Common issues include snapping, especially when it gets stuck on rocky terrain. Aluminum 7075, on the other hand, will not snap. It might bend under extreme pressure, but you can more likely bend it back and continue using it.
Advantages of Lever Lock
Aside from easy lengthening or shortening, poles with flip-locks can also be disassembled or reassembled easily. This is helpful if packing the trekking poles in a suitcase and shaving an inch or two off the assembled length is needed. With twist locks, it can be almost impossible to do this without breaking the poles.
