Helinox Passport TL120 Pair of Trekking Poles GoldTrekking Poles

Great for use with tarps for creating lightweight shelters.

The Helinox Passport range of trekking poles are ideally suited to day walking. Their smaller diameter means the Passport models have the lightest weight of all Helinox poles. Lightest of all is the adjustable length FL120 at just 145 grams per pole.

The TL Series of folding, fixed length poles offer the most compact travel size of any Helinox poles – some models as short as 33 cm. Their folding design makes for super-quick deployment and pack away.

Passport trekking poles are a great choice for those walkers carrying a light pack on well formed tracks. Walkers carrying heavier packs and/or traversing more arduous terrian should consider or Ridgeline or Causeway range.

What should you look for when buying a pair of poles?

Here are a few pointers on the technical aspects of pole selection.

Pole diameter

Smaller diameter poles are lighter and well suited to general bushwalking. When carrying a heavy pack or tackling arduous conditions a larger diameter pole will be more resistant to flexing under load.

Locking mechanisms

All of our walking poles collapse for stowage and transport. There are a number of ways in which the sections of a pole are secured together when expanded for use.

TENSION LOCK

Poles with a tension lock system use a single locking button to keep the folding pole sections together. An internal elastic cord maintains constant tension on the pole sections while the button is in the locked position. Depressing the lock button releases tension and the sections come apart for stowage. Tension lock poles have the shortest compacted length in our range.

FRICTION LOCK

Friction locks operate via a screw or twist action. The sections of the pole telescope – one sliding into the other. Twisting in one direction will loosen the pole so you can adjust length. Twist in the other direction to lock the pole in place. As this lock type relies on friction, over-tightening by applying extra force will not improve the holding power of the lock.

LEVER LOCK

Lever locks apply clamping force to the pole section to hold them in position. Pole sections are telescopic and freely slide to the desired length when the lever is released. How the lever is positioned is an important consideration. Helinox poles use vertically operating levers that are less likely to get caught and accidentally disengage in thick scrub. Helinox lever locks can be adjusted for tension and feature a unique lever 'rest zone' to help prolong service life.

LEVER & BUTTON LOCKS

Using a combination of a lever and multiple button locks, Helinox LB & LBB poles are a revolution in ease of use. A single movement of the lever loosens and locks the pole sections. The lower sections slide into place using locking buttons. Once the lever is opened the lower sections freely slide back into the compacted position without needing to depress the buttons.

GROOVE LOCK

In a quantum leap forward in walking pole technology, Helinox combined locking grooves with a friction/twist lock mechanism to produce a walking pole with immense load carrying capacity. The friction lock internally 'mates' with the locking grooves. This produces a light, yet heavy duty pole ideally suited to arduous conditions.

Pole length guide

The ideal trekking pole length is based on your height. If you are older or nursing an injury, a shorter length may be better – up to 5 cm less.
