IRIS Fitness trekking poles made of durable light weight aluminum are great for hiking, walking, trekking and snowshoeing across all terrains. The handles are made of durable rubber with ergonomic design to fit your hand seamlessly. The nylon strap adjusts to fit desired tension. That means you'll have less hand fatigue when grasping the pole. These poles adjust to your height, shrinking down to 25 inches at the smallest setting, and expand to 56 inches at the safest elongated position. Don't pull the poles out past the "stop" warning, but if you do, you can just push them back in again. The poles are constructed with an anti-shock core spring, which dampens impact felt through the rest of your body, saving valuable arm and leg strength. Each pole comes with a snow basket, or saucer, as well as a removable durable rubber tip that exposes a solid tungsten spike for when the terrain becomes difficult. Hiking poles aren't just for hikers and adventurers. Sometimes that fun family trip can be a bit tiring. The blocks of walking and sightseeing can really add up, so make sure you've got a set of hiking sticks to ease the burden on your joints while making sure you keep up with everyone else!
