Does it have Anti-shock absorption system?
KIM K I don't know about anti shock....but they work great and have reduced the strain on my knees while on down hill rocky trails. Hope that helps.
PAUL B No, they do not have a short absorption system. However, these are great poles and they are very light. I think the fact that they don't have the added shock absorption feature is one reason they are so light and cost effective. For the price, weight and as beginners these were perfect for my family. I bought a pair of my wife, 10 year old daughter and myself. We use them on our first trip to Ouray and were very happy we had them.
STEVEN W No, these ploes don't have the anti-shock system. They are rigid.
RUSSELL C No. I have never used shock absorbing poles myself, so I have no opinion on their merits. My wife uses these, and finds them adequate. I have BD Spire Ellipticals, which I like very much.
ALAN S No, but have not missed it. They pack down nicely and are very adjustable. Once adjusted, they have never slipped. Great poles, very pleased with the purchase.
CHRISTOPHER F No. Don't consider it a loss myself.
HOLMAN C No anti-shock system
