At Far North Exchange, we have striven to achieve the highest quality in our trekking poles which are both durable and light.
By building our poles with aerospace-grade aluminum, we found that we were able to prevent splintering after impact, an issue which occurs with most carbon fiber poles. Since bearing down hard to brace for a fall is very common, it was important to choose the right material to withstand this action.
We do not use cheaper aluminum which tends to be heavier and lead to more fatigue. This becomes a huge advantage when you consider that in a single hike, you might be lifting the poles thousands of times! We do not want you to make a decision between either strength or weight and with our poles you don’t need to!
How Important Are Strong Trekking Poles?
You need to be able to trust your poles through every challenging season and variety of terrains, whether your crossing creeks, icy trails, loose gravel or steep inclines.
Ease the pressure on your legs and knees by allowing your poles do the work when descending long mountain trails.
If you have balance issues or an injury that requires support, you can trust our poles to get you through your next adventure.
