Description

Description

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.

The poles do not have straps, but before you think they’re necessary, try a ~2 oz. pole. Most testers who bemoaned the lack of straps found they liked the poles better without straps, after using them for a few trips, because of the extreme light weight. A small loop of Spectra cord at the bottom of the handle allows the user to attach "keeper" straps or cords, to leave hands free when taking photos, for instance. The loops are not designed to take any significant force, and are not intended as an attachment point for conventional straps.

If you love your Lightrek™ 3C poles, and hike in areas far from your home, now you have a way to protect them while in transit! The Lightrek™ Travel Tube is a heavy duty industrial grade cardboard shipping tube. The walls are 1/8" thick, rendering them impervious to savage baggage handlers. With an inside diameter of 3 inches, they have room for two pairs of Lightrek™ 3C poles with baskets removed, or one set and whatever small items you can stuff in there. The plastic caps are reusable, and are recessed so they don't catch on baggage conveyors. We recommend you use packing tape or duct tape to secure the caps onto the tube, then check them with the rest of your luggage. Even when you are traveling by car, these tubes provide an extra measure of comfort for transporting your poles, especially if you're in a group with a bunch of people throwing gear in vans.

I thought I would miss not having straps but these are so light that I do not. Very sturdy and well made. I also love to hand these to people just to see their expression when they feel how light they are. (Posted on 7/4/14)

I have used these poles for years and have no complaints. It is hard to understand why people carry around the more common heavy poles when such a superior product is available. (Posted on 5/15/14)
Amazing Poles!!!Review by Kapow

I couldn't tell you how many other hikers minds I've blown by asking them to hold ONE of their poles in one hand, then give them TWO of my LT3 poles to hold in the other hand. Realizing BOTH of mine weigh a lot less than one of theirs. The expression on their face is priceless! A favorite piece of gear of mine! (Posted on 2/21/14)
