Gradient Trekking Poles



Designed for backpackers, climbers and day hikers, the Gradient’s molded cork grip is excellent in wet climates. Fully extendable to 57 inches (145 cm), it works well as a center support in our Betamid and Beta Light tents.
FEATURES: FlickLock and Binary adjustments, molded cork grip, variable width strap and Long Flex Tips

Voted 5/5

I like these trekking poles quite a bit. The poles are sturdy, and have really saved my knees. The flick locks are amazing, they have never slipped on me and they are easy to use. However, the Binary adjustments while they are light and have never slipped, are annoying to retract. It always seems to take me 5 minutes of tinkering to get it to work.
