The Komperdell Guide Titanal Trekking Poles are an ultra-light walking staff constructed of Komperdell's extra strong Titanal HF shafts. Ideal for travelers, the Guide Titanal easily adjusts for varied use and collapses for convenient storage and transport. The Guide Titanal's 4 telescopic sections are constructed of Titanal HF. Titanal is part of the 7000 class of alloys. The mechanical properties of Titanal are comparable to steel, but its weight is only 1/3 the weight of steel. Titanal is strong, light, and highly resistant to abrasion and corrosion.
