I love the fact that they are light and fold away - fantastic when you are travelling by plane with limited luggage.

Robyn used her TL Series Passport Poles on a walking holiday in the Dolomites, Italy. "The hand grip is excellent – very comfortable and doesn’t get slippery when wet".

the only thing better than the quality of the gear is the quality of the service

Trekking in Tasmania and Nepal, Richard and his wife used Helinox TL Series Passport Poles.

A big step forward

Helinox Passport TL Series walking poles are fixed length, ultra-lightweight, ultra-compact, strong and reliable. The TL Series poles are suited for general day walking carrying a light pack.

Through the use of DAC TH72M alloy and clever design, the Helinox TL Series is a big step forward in walking pole technology. These poles achieve entirely new levels of lightweight strength, compactness, operating simplicity and economy - making walking poles considerably more user-friendly than ever before.

TL Series fixed length walking poles are available in a choice of several model sizes to suit different body heights. The TLA130 model adds a limited amount of length adjustment.

thanks for making such a strong walking pole

Gail says her TL Series Passport Poles saved her from a bad fall while walking in Bulgaria: "I had a difficult situation where both feet were wedged and I lost my balance. As I slowly started to topple, I watched in amazement to see my right pole bend to an angle where I was sure it would snap. I gradually regained my balance by pushing all my weight on this pole. I am sure that a lesser pole would have snapped and I would have had an awkward, painful fall."

The absolute lightest

Helinox Passport FL120 Walking Poles are the lightest poles available in the Helinox range – just 148 grams per pole.

Easily adjustable with a reliable twist lock mechanism to suit persons from 90 cm to 180 cm tall (from 4' to 6'). Suited for general day walks on pavement, trails or bushwalking.

The FL120 is a favourite among experienced walkers who understand the benefits of ultra lightweight poles. It is also a perfect pole for children & younger walkers.

When carrying a heavy load on multi-day treks or traversing arduous terrain, a larger diameter Ridgeline or Causeway pole is recommended.

Passport Walking Poles

have been using the Helinox TL folding poles for almost two years now and I just want to say they are fantastic!

Rod and his wife have been walking with Helinox Passport Poles. "The poles have saved me from several potentially nasty, or embarrassing, falls and we have used them in Scotland, Tasmania and all around Perth and the southwest of WA. I would never think of walking without them".
