Komperdell has launched an innovative system for adjusting the length of a walking pole. The Stiletto can be adjusted easily and quickly via a button on the handle.
This new adjusting concept changes the height without the use of standard twist-lock or power lock systems used on other hiking poles which can be time-consuming and in some situations dangerous. Because it can be awkward and time consuming, a large number of hikers and back country skiers reportedly do not bother to adjust the length at all once it is set, even though shorter or longer lengths would make a difference to the situation.
The Stiletto allows poles to be adjusted faster and with ease making it simpler when out skiing or hiking. This simplicity of adjustment is said to allow hikers or skiers to feeling more balanced and secure on uneven and difficult terrain.
