TERRA NOVA TRAIL LITE WALKING POLES

Why are trekking poles so useful? Chris Townsend reviews the latest walking poles for the outdoors. On test Terra Nova Trail Lite walking poles


I think the Terra Nova‘s Trail Lite’s are the best of the sub £50 poles reviewed. In fact, I think they’re better than some of the more expensive poles. In design they are very similar to the Anatom Explorers with the same easy-to-use  chunky clip locks and the same baskets and tips. The grip is the same too but there’s no extension. The strap is different however, being wider and made from a soft fabric rather than lined webbing. The grips and straps are comfortable and the latter are usable with thick mitts. Overall I think these are the best value of all the poles tested.
