RIDGELINE series poles balance light weight with the strength for trekking, mountain and ski in arduous day trips or week long treks.
The Helinox LTL135 uses a combination of the vertical lever system and the tension lock system
Aligning the lever vertically with the length of the pole makes a longer lever possible without creating a protuberance problem. The mechanical advantage of a longer lever makes for easier operation.
Deformation of a single locking cam under pressure is substantially reduced by the unique Helinox dual cam system which spreads the load. The reduced cam deformation ensures consistent high locking forces for more reliable performance. The dual cams require less distance between tube and cam for better performance.
The unique Lever Resting Zone of the Helinox Lever Lock system relieves all pressure on the mechanism when the pole is compacted and not in use. Locking pressure is more consistent and reliable with the Helinox Lever Lock system.
The Helinox Tension Lock models 'new generation' walking poles are fixed length, ultra-lightweight, ultra-compact, strong and reliable. The TL poles (also known as 'trekking poles' or 'hiking poles') are suited for all general bushwalking. This radical step forward in walking pole technology achieves entirely new levels of lightweight strength, compactness, operating simplicity and economy - making walking poles considerably more 'user friendly' than ever before.
