The Ridgeline LTL135 Trekking Pole balances low weight with the strength required for arduous trekking, mountaineering or skiing trips. The collapsible design uses a combination of the Helinox Lever Lock system and the Tension Lock system.
The Lever Lock system between the two uppermost sections uses dual cams to lock the sections together. The use of two cams reduces cam deformation to ensure consistent high locking forces for more reliable performance. The dual cams also require less distance between tube and cam for better performance. A Lever Resting Zone relieves all pressure on the mechanism when the pole is compacted and not in use. The Helinox Tension Lock system secures the remaining sections together using an internal cord that becomes tensioned as the sections are assembled. This stacked assembly provides great strength. A simple press of the button lock releases the tension so that the sections can be folded together for compact storage.
