Mountain King Trail Blaze Poles are about as light as you can get with a trekking pole. Designed for fast and light runners in mind, they are as stripped down as you can get and fold down to a minimal 38cm.
These 4 section aluminium poles secure in place with a simple perlon cord (similar to what you get with and avalanche probe) so there is little room for error yet keeps the weight down. At 110g, a single Trail Blaze pole is lighter than most carbon poles and is perfect for those needing stability for fast paced activities.
Although hardwearing (our resident ultra distance runner has yet to break his!) they are still a very minimalist item that is only suitable for fast and light use and not for heavy trekking or standard fell walking use.

Perfect for the Dartmoor Ultra races and going to be heading north for the Spine Race in January. Needed to tighten the retaining cord to stop the claggy peat pulling them apart with each step but once done no issues, light and strong.

I have been very pleased with these poles. They are extremely lightweight and easy to assemble/dismantle and they fit compactly into their storage bag. I use them for trail running and they are durable and add stability to my runs and I would recommend them highly.

Escellent for running as fold and stash easily when not required. Worked well in Alps in some snow and steep inclines. Velcro not always secure found doubling toggle back up worked.

I wanted poles that folded small and could be transported easily. These are just what I wanted. They have a choice of pole endings, suitable for most terrains.

My first use of these poles was for the UTMB 2014. First class, no issues, light weight. Less flexible than the Raidlite which I have used previously - which was a bonus - more robust. Maybe need to include elasticated hook to hold each pole-bunch together when folded.
