The Gossamer Gear Lightrek trekking poles are the lightest trekking poles on the market, weighing just a fraction of what the lightest collapsible models weigh. The Gossamer Gear Lightrek trekking poles are also extremely simple - foam grips without straps, one-section carbon fiber shafts, and Leki-style carbide tips with a trekking basket.
