Lightweight, rattle-resistant REI® Ascent Shocklight compact trekking poles supply support and stability without disturbing the peace.


  • Compact-sized poles are ideal for those with smaller hands and shorter stature
  • Shocklight shock absorbers weigh less than common spring-loaded poles and won't rattle within the shaft as you walk
  • Shock-absorbing poles reduce fatigue while improving stability; lock-out mechanism creates a rigid pole when needed for more efficient climbing
  • DuoLock™—an extra-strong internal locking mechanism—provides a big boost in performance
  • DuoLocks apply a wide area of pressure against pole walls to lock in length adjustment
  • DuoLocks showed 50% more holding power than other locking mechanisms during REI lab tests
  • Three-section telescoping poles extend to a maximum length of 49'' and compact to 24'' for easy storage and transport
  • Foam grips with an ergonomic, contoured shape are easy to hold; extended grip length allows pole to be held low during short side hill traverses
  • Adjustable padded neoprene wrist straps add support
  • Fitted with trekking disks and extra-durable tungsten carbide tips; rubber tip protectors included
  • Made from 7075-T6 aluminum for durability with a light carry weight
