Life-Link claims that "The Guide Ultra Light is one of the lightest and most dependable trekking poles on Earth!" Read the Life-Link Guide Ultra Light trekking pole review to see what we think about that! The Life-Link Guide Ultra Light trekking poles are light for adjustable poles due to their two-section design, short overall length, and hybrid aluminum upper/carbon fiber lower shaft. The Life-Link Guide Ultra Light trekking poles are adaptable for technical snow use. The Life-Link Guide Ultra Light trekking poles: 1) convert to a short avalanche probe, 2) can be adapted with a self arrest grip called "The Claw," and 3) have a rough sandpaper-like shaft grip section, the " Friction Zone," to help you adjust them with heavy mitts on.
