The Lightrek™ 3C FIXED length trekking poles are the latest offspring in the evolution of our trekking pole line. Custom engineered they strike a balance between insanely light and amazingly tough by being both. The new LT3C's have the same custom tapered shaft and now have the added spiral wrap of carbon fiber at the tip end like the LT4 adjustables. These FIXED length poles will now be made to order, in the standard 5 cm increments, so please allow an extra couple of days for manufacturing when ordering.
"During my 2004 PCT hike on into 2006 I had seen a few sets of carbon fiber trekking poles on the trail but had immediately discounted them after hearing stories of carbon poles snapping like twigs and I just personally felt that carbon poles would not hold up to the use & abuse a thru-hiker would put on them during a multi-month hike. After 500+ miles of testing with the Gossamer Gear Lightreks, I am not only a convert to carbon fiber poles, but they are currently my favorite piece of gear! These poles are amazing!"
