Torpedo7 Telescopic Hiking Pole

Walking Poles

Product Details

The Torpedo7 Mountain Lite 7075 Alloy Trekking Pole with Antishock is an awesome addition to your next trip outdoors.

It's telescopic design makes it small and compact when not in use but very adjustable in length for all heights of users. It's soft handle and EVA Sleeve make it comfortable to use and is perfect for all conditions including the extreme cold. The 7075 Premium Alloy shaft is both lightweight and strong and means there is less pendulum weight when swinging them thus causing less fatigue. The Tungsten Carbide tip will grip even in the most slippery conditions such as during river crossings. The simple twist lock internal cams allow you to quickly and easily change the poles length for different height people or for when ascending/descending and they will provide more downward strength than a quick release design.  
Using hiking poles will help protect your knees, shins and ankle while descending and should help to prevent slips and falls. They will allow you to climb steep ascents quicker and easier with less effort as you combine upper and lower body muscle groups at the same time as burning more calories and building Arm, Shoulder and Neck Muscles. They aid balance on the most uneven terrains and during slippery river crossings. They also promote better posture to keep you more upright, opening up the chest and improving breathing and help to prevent sore backs while carrying heavy loads. They are also compact and can be attached to or put in your pack ready to be deployed rapidly during your next walk, run or hike.

  • Inbuilt Antishock
  • Comfortable Grip handle

  • 480g
To extend the pole, simply twist the section you want to lengthen/shorten anti clockwise, adjust to the length you desire and retighten by turning it clockwise again. 
The Perfect length on Flat terrain is to have the pole handle in your hand with your hand through the strap, the pole just in front of your body standing upright and for your elbow and forearm bent at 90deg to your body. If you are going uphill, it can be a lot easier if you shorten the length of your pole by about 5-10cm and if you are descending it is a good idea to lengthen your pole 5-10cm so you can reach the ground descending from in front of you. 
DO NOT extend the pole past the STOP mark indicated on the shaft above 135cm 
DO NOT extend the sections unevenly eg one long, one short as this will put undue stress on the pole possibly causing breakages. Try to extend each section evenly to spread the load. 
To make best use of the straps, start with your hand below the strap loop and insert your hand UP through the strap and then form a large O-shape with your thumb and forefinger around the top of the strap and pole handle. Your hand should rest with the crux of your thumb on top of the strap. This means that when you apply downward pressure to propel yourself forwards, it is transferred not from your tight grip on the pole handle but from the tension applied between the wrist and strap. So as you stride along your poles become an extension to the flow of your wrist, arms and whole body movement. 
Be careful not to catch your pole in between a rock or on a board walk, metal grate or stair as if you continue forwards the momentum can bend or snap your pole. 
If you find the pole length slipping, simply give the section that slipped another slight turn clockwise to tighten the internal cam the recheck that it now doesn't slip. If the pole continues to slip, take the pole apart and ensure the shafts are dry and clean internally and externally. 
Do not lubricate the shaft with oils or grease but ensure you keep all surfaces clean and dry especially during storage. This will prolong the life of your pole. 
Max user weight <120kg - Max holding strength of the internal twist camlock = 100kg approx. (nb. Moisture/lubrication or cleanliness of the shaft will affect its ability to hold)
