Craghoppers Superlite Shock Absorber Walking Poles
I use Craghoppers Superlite Shock Absorber Walking Poles for the majority of walking routes as I find they are perfect for all types of walks. Each walking pole is made of aircraft grade aluminium and extends to 60cm to 125cm so perfect all all heights and are extremely lightweight at only 265g.

Each shock absorbing pole has a composite cork and ligh foam grip handle with an adjustable padded strap and a narrow profile 3 section design which easily twists in to a lockable position.I mainly use these poles for when the ground is a little unstable for better balance over rockier terrains, steep declining tracks or walking across shingle banks or loose stone underfoot.
They have also been very handy for an improved traction on wet hill walks as the bottom of the pole can be removed to reveal a spike. That way the pole doesn’t slip, it digs straight in to the soil and achieves good balance.Craghoppers have considerable technical know how and have designed an amazingly light yet superbly strong walking pole that takes the strain out of any trek.
The cork and foam grip handle means it doesn’t chafe my hands and the adjustable strap enables me to comfortably secure them when climbing over stiles and crossing fords. They are really well suited to outdoor and Nordic walking.
Craghoppers started to make outdoor clothes specifically designed for the harsh outdoor elements back in 1965. A group of adventurers in West Yorkshire were planning to climb Everest and wanted top notch outdoor clothing to withstand the harshest of conditions, so they researched and designed fabrics that would protect them from the extreme cold. All their preparation paid off as they successfully reached the summit of Everest. This was the birth of Craghoppers.
