3、This is the most important part to consider when purchasing a trekking pole. Because the mutual transmission of the trekking pole and the user’s body strength is mainly through the wristband, it should be considered when selecting a good wristband whether it has the following characteristics: Wide, narrow on both sides, can prevent the hand; the wrist strap adjustment buckle is placed at the connection with the trekking pole, does not touch the hand to prevent the hand; the inside of the wristband is a suede anti-friction material, effectively protecting the wristband contact Skin.
4、The material of the pole is usually made of aluminum alloy, carbon fiber, titanium alloy, wood, steel, etc. Among them, aluminum alloy and carbon fiber are the most extensive. Several materials have the following characteristics: aluminum alloy: durable, low price, weight ratio carbon fiber and titanium The alloy is heavy and easy to corrode; carbon fiber: lightweight, material elasticity and toughness, high strength ratio, corrosion resistance, and high price; titanium alloy:lightweight, material elasticity and strength, corrosion resistance and high price.
5、The locking system is the core safety component of a trekking pole, and 90% of the trekking pole problems are caused by a locking system failure. Low-cost trekking poles generally use ordinary plastic parts that are easily deformed, while high-end trekking poles are made of high-hard engineering plastics (crystal-molded) and precision cut. Such as the industry-recognized advanced locking system, Black Diamond / Black Diamond’s self-developed Flicklock joint locking system, Robinson’s patented SLS second-generation locking system, Wildview / Di’s 3LS safety locking system.
6、At the same time, the aluminum trekking poles are equipped with a suspension system along with the locking system. As a spring component, the suspension system can effectively cushion the impact force. When the slope is downhill, the pressure on the knee can be reduced. However, since the spring absorbs the thrust when going uphill, it will consume additional physical strength when walking for a long time. In addition, spring parts with poor material quality are prone to rust, breakage, slippage, etc., causing the locking system to buckle or fail. The trekking pole made of carbon fiber and titanium alloy has good elasticity and toughness, so it can achieve balanced shock absorption without the need for a shock absorber system.
support can prevent trekking poles from falling into the mud. However, the environment through which the mountaineering passes has many thorn bushes. The mud support will hinder the convenience of the action, so it should be noted that the mud tray should be able to be disassembled quickly without causing trouble.
8、The tip of the rod is made of rubber head, iron, carbon tungsten steel. Carbon tungsten steel is the hardest and most expensive, and the rubber head is the cheapest, but it is also less able to cope with the rugged outdoor terrain, and the wear resistance is not as good as the carbon tungsten steelhead. The pattern of the tip of the stick is usually a mesh pattern, a diamond pattern, a lattice pattern, etc., wherein the diamond pattern has the best anti-slip property and penetration.
