​Overview of the Features

​Choosing a pair of trekking poles isn't always an easy task, especially if you have certain features that you want included.

Here is a look at the most important qualities offered by this pair of Vive trekking poles.

  • Shock Absorption

If your joints feel sore even after a short hike, you may appreciate the specialized shock-absorb spring incorporated into this design. It definitely minimizes the impact of rough terrain on your body.

  • Adjustability

You may be wondering why there is so much interest in adjustability of the poles. If this is true, you are probably new to trekking.

​Different types of terrain require changes in the length of your poles, and adjustable poles means that kids, women, and men can use the same set of poles.

  • Weight

One of the most important reasons to choose a lightweight set of poles such as this pair is because it minimizes fatigue.

When you have less weight to carry, you save energy and strength. You can use the energy you save to trek further or simply to feel less fatigued once you stop for the day.

Each pole weighs only 7 ounces plus another 2-3 ounces, give or take, when the tips, straps, handle and baskets are all put together.

  • Grip

Experienced and novice hikers alike can appreciate the comfortable grips attached to these poles. As you might expect, the grips offer a comfortable, soft hold. This comfort is accentuated by wrist straps that adjust to your specifications.

  • All-Terrain Accessories

Sure, you can buy your own carrying bag and different sets of tips, but why spend extra money if you don't need to do so? This set comes with four different types of tips, pole clips, and a bag to carry everything.

​How to Use

​Figuring out how to use your trekking poles is only going to take a few minutes. Just use your common sense, and everything should make sense. If you have trouble, watch an online video--the one below for example--for tips.

When you need to adjust your wrist straps, it's important to push hard to move them. If you don't, you may feel frustrated. This is a case where practice does make the job easier to do.

Adjusting your poles for length is easy to do, allowing you to switch up whenever you need to do so. When you are done for the day, just collapse your poles and tuck them into your carrying bag.

​Alternative

​When you intend to do a lot of trekking, you need a good, sturdy pair of poles. If you aren't sold on the poles described here, you will want to look at other options.

Black Diamond's Alpine Carbon Cork trekking poles offer a good alternative, especially if you want a pair that holds up well on long treks and rugged terrain. This design adjusts easily and provides shock absorption technology.

Both sets come with accessories and high ratings. It's just a matter of your personal preference in how much you are willing to spend.

​Conclusion

​Whether you like to walk, hike, or need support for exercise, Vive trekking poles offer the features needed to do so safely.

They have a sturdy design and adjust easily. You won't find yourself fiddling around with these poles as you try and shorten or lengthen them.

If you are looking for trekking poles that hold up under pressure, don't weigh too much, and come with accessories, Vive may be the poles for you.
