1. Manufacturing materials
Today, the vast majority of trekking poles on the market are made of high-grade aluminum that can withstand extremely harsh environments, in addition to which manufacturers use titanium alloys and other composite materials. The outstanding advantages of these materials with advanced technology lie in their ultra-light weight and extreme durability. The application of these types of materials in the manufacture of trekking poles can effectively extend their service life.
2. Length and number of retractable sections
Whether it is retractable or not is the latest popular topic in the trekking pole market. The telescopic portability of trekking poles depends on how many sections the entire trekking pole body consists of. The higher the number of knots, the smaller the trekking pole can be. At present, the three-section pole form is the most portable and safest choice of telescopic trekking poles. Comparatively speaking, although the two-section cane is stronger overall, it is more likely to break due to its small number of sections; the non-adjustable cane undoubtedly has the best strength, but how to carry it when not in use will be the most troublesome problem.
3. Stick head material
When it comes to the material of the rod head, durability is the primary concern. Carbide tips and tungsten alloy tips are undoubtedly the most durable tips on the market. They can ensure better shape of the tip and have a longer service life compared with tips of other materials. Steel tips are the most popular due to their price, but wear the fastest. If you're traversing some sensitive surfaces and want to increase the grip of the pole, you can use the removable rubber pole cap, which is also a function of most trekking poles.
