The fixed length Gossamer Gear Lightrek 3 Pole is a staff favorite and received our Highly Recommended rating. The new Gossamer Gear Lightrek 4 poles bring an adjustable model to the Lightrek line. Like the Lightrek 3 poles, the Lightrek 4 poles have oversized carbon shafts, multi-position Kork-o-Lon grips, carbide tips that accept Leki baskets, and a good balance of stiffness and vibration damping. This model brings adjustability, optional wrist straps, and also a new spiral-wound lower section for added durability.
