Walkers get some stick from Komperdell

c08fce94-4922-484b-9a05-ed290726cf40

German company Komperdell has launched a new series of poles for walkers that come with an innovative adjustment system. The Stiletto can be adjusted very easily and quickly via a button on the handle. This brand-new adjusting concept changes the height without the use of standard twist-lock or power lock systems used on most hiking poles which often are too time-consuming and, in some situations, dangerous. Because of this a large number of hikers do not bother to adjust the length at all once it is set, even though shorter or longer lengths would make a difference to the situation.

There are two models of Stiletto pole, the Expedition and the Tour. The Expedition has the adjustment directly at the handle, which offers much more comfort and security. This three-stage model of the Stiletto can be adjusted from 115 – 140cm and is also foldable for easy storage in or on the backpack (packed size 65cm). The lower section of the Stiletto Expedition is made from robust and reliable Titanal Rocksleeve for even greater protection.

The Tour is a two-stage pole with the new fast and easy to use button adjustment on the handle and can be adjusted from 115-140cm.

The upper parts of the Stiletto poles are made from extra strong but extremely lightweight, Titanal.HF, the lower parts are made from high grade carbon.

The pole concept combines a hi-tec adjusting solution in the handle with a grip made from EVA foam with an extended gripzone.  The ergonomically shaped new neoprene-strap can be adjusted with a velcro fastener and can be adapted with or without gloves. Other features include the ice-tip and ice-basket that adapt to different terrains.

Both models are available in a compact version which adjust from 105-130cm.
