Trekking Poles in Your Size. Guaranteed.

Walk upright without tension: no problem with our adjustable hiking poles.

They can be adjusted between 95 (or 115) and 135 cm to the right pole length – with a quick release with one hand. Perfect for men and women between 1.40 (or 1.60) and 2 m:

  • Alpine Explorer: 95-135 cm
  • Expedition Pro and 3K Carbon Extreme+: 115-135 cm

The optimal length for you can be found in the size chart. Choose a slightly longer setting for downhill, and a slightly shorter setting for uphill.

Pole tips made of tungsten steel

How Your Walking Poles Secure Every Step

So that every step counts: Every walking stick has massive tungsten steel tips. The metal tips penetrate soft and hard ground to prevent slipping.

In the hiking poles, we use break-resistant 6061 aluminum (Alpine Explorer), 7075 aluminum (Expedition Pro) or 3K carbon (3K Carbon Extreme+), which impresses with its lightweight and maximum stability.

The adjustable wrist straps ensure that the poles are always securely and comfortably in your hand.

Easy from Start to Finish

Trekking poles that you forget while hiking? They exist! Because with our ultra-lightweight constructions made of aluminum or carbon, your sporty support literally does not weigh you down.

Thanks to the extended handles, you can often avoid adjusting the length of your poles. Simply re-grip!

Neither sweat nor rain can bother you. With non-slip handles made of cork or EVA, you always hold your trekking poles securely in your hands.

Frequently Asked Questions

Of course, you do not need hiking poles to walk in the fresh air. However, they offer some advantages: they provide safety by preventing falls on uneven ground or steep slopes. In some sports, such as high-altitude mountain tours, they are therefore essential. They also relieve muscles and joints.

For anyone who wants to move healthily in nature. Trekking poles allow even older people to exercise, for example after a hip operation. People with knee problems also find the support helpful as it relieves the knees and helps against knee pain. Exercising in the sun strengthens the body’s overall resilience.

Our purchase advice: Alpine Explorer is the entry-level variant with the best price-performance ratio. The model is lightweight, stable, and versatile. Advanced users and travelers appreciate the practical portability of our two foldable hiking poles: Expedition Pro made of aluminum and 3K Carbon Extreme+ made of ultra-light carbon.

Correct: The normal trekking attachment is best for soft surfaces like forest, meadow, or mud. The walking attachment is best used on hard surfaces like roads. The snow attachment (only included with Expedition Pro and 3K Carbon Extreme+) is perfect for winter mountain tours.

Telescopic poles like Alpine Explorer can be quickly extended and collapsed. The shortest length is 65 centimeters, the longest length is 135 centimeters. The foldable hiking poles Expedition Pro and 3K Carbon Extreme+ are even shorter when folded: they reach 37 centimeters. This is practical if you want to travel by plane. To fold, simply release the quick release, to assemble, simply snap it in place.

This decision is a matter of taste: While both materials are extremely stable, carbon is slightly lighter. Professionals who want to feel the difference prefer our 3K Carbon Extreme+.

Yes, usually. People up to two meters tall can walk comfortably and upright with our height-adjustable walking poles – whether for men or women. There is no weight limit: if you use the poles correctly, you can also lean on them with a higher weight.

Yes! With the walking attachment, you can also use the poles on hard surfaces

. The rubber tips provide cushioning, which means you need less energy while walking. At the same time, they cushion the impact to relieve the joints.
