GL145 Walking Poles provide a quantum leap in trekking pole technology. Other twist lock poles rely only on frictional resistance in the locking mechanism. Helinox GL145 poles add mechanical engagement to massively boost load capacity.
Internal grooves in the tube engage positively with the patented twist locking mechanism to create enduring strength and toughness for the most arduous expeditions.
GL Series are the professional's choice in walking poles – Helinox GL145 poles are used by feral dog control officers in the rugged alpine region of south eastern Australia.
The GL145 is available in two types: as a standard pole or with a built-in shock absorber for those who prefer this feature.
Please note that we generally recommend poles without the shock absorbing feature for more reliable grip. When used correctly, the strap on a walking pole helps cushion any impact without the need for a built-in shock absorber.
