Specs / Material

The LT4 and LT4S is one of the lightest adjustable length carbon fiber hiking poles on the planet.

LT4 hiking poles are sold as single pole

The LT4S has a wrist strap, the LT4 does not.

A strap can not be added to the LT4.

Gossamer Gear is proud to offer the Lightrek 4, or LT4, trekking poles. They are adjustable from 90cm to 135 cm for hiking, but go up to140 cm for using to set up a shelter. Easy to use and feature a spiral wrap at the tip section for added durability where you need it most. Adjustment of the LT4 is as easy as can be, just insert the tip section into the grip section and give it a few twists to expand the locking mechanism until it's snug. They feature EVA "Kork-o-lon" grips and a hardened carbide tip that accepts Leki™ brand baskets. One basket is included with each pole. Elegant, simple, strong and gorilla-tested, these poles are everything you need and nothing you don't.
