Rubber tips – For walking paved paths, sidewalks, or large smooth rocks
Carbide tips – For digging into gravel trails, hard packed paths, or ice
Mud baskets – To help prevent your poles from sinking into mud or sand when hiking tougher conditions
Please note, that if using your hiking poles with the rubber tip, they will wear out with time and need to be replaced eventually. Depending on the hiking conditions they may last anywhere from 5-25+ miles.
Anti-Shock Feature For More Comfort
The BAFX Products hiking poles incorporate an anti shock feature located inside of each pole on the top of the middle section. This anti shock feature is an internal spring which helps to reduce the sharp jolt that travels through the pole each time the pole hits the ground.
If you don’t like the anti shock feature no problem! It can be easily activated or deactivated on each pole!
Why do I need this? Simple, less stress on your hands and joints during long hikes or walks! If your hiking / walking over long distances this repetitive jolt to your arm joints and hands can wear you down and cause pain, the anti shock feature will help to reduce the jolt resulting in longer, more enjoyable hiking!
Great For All Heights Of People
Not sure what size pole is right for you? Generally speaking, you want your poles to be set at a height where when holding the pole straight up and down, your arm will form a 90° angle. Using this rule of thumb our trekking poles will work great for people of any heights from 3’6″ to 6’4″. In the listing photos at the top of the page you will find a sizing chart to show you approximately how far to extend your hiking poles! What matters most though is your comfort while out hiking the great outdoors! Try this rule of thumb and see how it works, then adjust as needed to reach your comfort level!
Once you determine your preferred height, there are convenient height markings on our walking poles to help you get the sticks set to the right length quickly and easily!
