The company was started in 1993 to sell high-quality mountain sports equipment. They’ve also always prioritized sustainability. In recent years, they’ve extended their own private label products, and starting in spring 2020, they’ve included a MADE IN AUSTRIA catalogue with high-quality products designed and made in Götzis, Vorarlberg, Austria.
Carbon Trekking Poles ALPIN LOACKER
The main merits of these poles are their lightness, compactness, and cork grips, which prevent slipping when hands are sweaty. Carbon fiber makes them pleasant by reducing vibrations.
Below is my review of the ALPIN LOACKER Pro Series, Foldable Carbon Trekking Poles with Accessories. For more info visit alpinloacker.com.
Why ALPIN LOACKER Pro Series poles?
The Alpin Loacker carbon pro-series poles drew my interest because of their durability, lightness, and small size. For me, the weight is more important than the price of alternative aluminum poles. The weight of all equipment and materials can add several kilogram’s to our loads, making our journeys more difficult. Light, durable materials are vital to success.
I admired this Austrian company’s devotion to sustainability and the environment. Nature lovers like pristine environments. I think mountaineers must respect this principle.
How will I use the ALPIN LOACKER Pro Series poles?
I got Alpin Loacker poles for Patagonia. They functioned effectively since they feature terrain-adaptive attachments. Snow, rock, asphalt, and mud are no problem.
Application and description of ALPIN LOCKER poles
Poles come in a bag. Three portions are inside. Spread and assemble them effortlessly. After attaching the parts, we pull the second section until it clicks. The pole will then be ready. After that, alter the length.
Star-shaped is best for snow.
Shoe-shaped is for sand, grass, etc.
Attached blocks are great for asphalt.
These pole accessories can be removed, leaving a metal end. Add a circular plastic component to make rocky-terrain poles.
After preparing the poles, adjust the straps. Put the weight on your wrists while holding the poles.
