Designed and built for high performance and 4 season use, the Tiger Paw Carbon trekking poles are perfect for travelling ultralight in the rugged outdoors. The Tiger Paw 100% Carbon backbone is made of high strength dense Carbon Fiber Composite telescoping tubes. The height is adjusted via two snap-click compression locks made of lightweight anodized aluminum levers, steel hardware, and engineering polymers. The easy-to-use finger tightening nut allows for precise lock compression strength. The cork and polymer combination hand grip with the polymer extension and the contoured dimpled top palm grip allows for a comfortable grip in any situation and molds to your hand as the miles wear on. The silver pole markings allow for easy visibility in any light. These poles score high in our matrix for light weight, ruggedness, ease-of-use and strength.
