The formed oxide layer improves the functional properties of the underlying alloy, especially increasing the corrosion resistance, hardness and abrasion resistance of the anodized parts. Anodizing is environmentally friendly because the oxidation process is an enhancement of the natural oxidation of aluminum, so it does not produce heavy metals or other harmful and dangerous by-products.
In addition, it has excellent shock absorption and is UV-resistant. The extended handle allows you to find the optimal grip position in rough terrain.
Light TL Foam
Thanks to the combination of the very light aluminum alloy 7001 used in the aviation industry on the upper segment, together with the very strong aluminum alloy 7075 on the lower telescopic segments and the Twist Lock screw locks, the unrivaled weight of the Pinguin Light TL foam sticks was achieved at only 190g/piece.
The length of the sticks can be adjusted very easily, quickly and safely using two Twist Locks from 66 to 136 cm. The lines on the lower segments of the sticks also contribute to easy adjustment.
Adjustable straps on the wrist contribute to greater comfort and safety when using the sticks.
The poles come with a pair of trekking and a pair of snow plates.

The stick segments are colored anodized. This surface treatment makes aluminum mechanically wear-resistant and has increased resistance to weathering.
Extended stick handles are made of non-absorbent, non-slip and vibration-absorbing EVA foam. It is the length of the handle that defines the poles as four-season, thanks to the possibility of changing the position of the grip when traversing while maintaining a comfortable and secure grip.
The tips are made of durable Tungsten Carbide, and the package includes rubber tip caps that eliminate vibrations and unwanted noise on hard surfaces.
