They are deceptively light! Our weights are as follows:
Fixed Length: 5.5 - 7.3 ounces (156 - 207 grams) per pole
Collapsible: 8.0 - 9.8 ounces ( 227- 278 grams) per pole
*Final injection molding may alter the weight slightly
We have added a sizing chart and will determine your selection through a Backer Survey once the Kickstarter campaign is finished.
Typical sizes are shown. We will accommodate any special requests, just send us a message.
Our bamboo performed better than aluminum in bending tests.
Our prototyped joints are stronger than our bamboo, giving an overall product that is as strong as the fixed length.
We 3-point bend-tested our product in the materials science lab at the University of Washington, and will re-test the joints again once they are injection molded.
The collapsible poles only break down and do not adjust.
We have an extended handle length for different hand positions. Whether hiking uphill or downhill, you'll be able to find the best height by simply adjusting your hand.
