Titanium Goat's carbon fiber Goat Poles are available in either a fixed length (reviewed here) or in a two-piece collapsible "Take Down" version. What's unique about these poles is they are made of larger diameter (14 millimeter) wrapped carbon fiber tubing which makes them very stiff and quite strong. These are minimalist carbon poles, weighing only 3.1 ounces per pole. I really grew to like their simplicity, stiffness, light weight, balance, and performance. With a few minor fixes the Goat Poles could be one of the best ultralight trekking poles available.
