Trekking through a boulder field? Check. Steep, slippery descent? Check. Long, rough trail? Check and check. The Kelty Range 2.0 Trekking Poles don't discriminate when it comes to terrain, which makes them a great companion for any trek, hike, or backpacking trip you have on the agenda. The tough aluminum shafts, cork grips, EVA grip extensions, and padded wrist straps provide a lightweight and comfortable platform for support, balance, and a little extra push on the way up, while the rubber and carbide tips offer up grip on rocky, muddy, and wet surfaces. The Range also sports an easy-to-use Twist Lock length adjustment, so hikers of all sizes can find just the right length, and they also feature an integrated anti-shock mechanisms that help take the stress of your knees, elbows, and wrists on the way down.

- Q & A
Take a look at the Range 2.0
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
I gave these as a gift but I was told these were great! My friend said she never thought she needed trekking poles but after using them snowshoeing and said they helped take pressure off of her knees. She was stoked and is excited to use these on more adventures!
First time use- I'm a believer
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I have gone hiking lots of times and have never gotten into trekking poles. I can say after this trip, I am a believer! There is nothing crazy amazing about this specific set, although I like the cork handles, the telescoping way they break down, and they have a little bit of shock resistance wish is really nice for downhill. Went backpacking for 3 days with them and I was so glad I had them.
is this a single pole or a set?
This is a pair.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
These are my first set of trekking poles. I am very satisfied with the quality and ease of use these present for the low price. The cork grip is comfortable all day and is friendly to grab even after sweat pours all over it. The straps are very comfortable given the padding and the tops are simple to grip when going downhill.
The anti shock springs are a big asset to this pole in particular compared to other, more expensive, anti shock poles. The only downside is the spring is audible when the pole is mis-planted.
The included rubber tips are great for protecting rocks from scratches and traction on rough surfaces but are very slippery on wet wood. Dry day = leave no trace rubber tips. Wet day = carbon tip all good combo.
The basket seems a bit large.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I needed these for when doing longer hikes. These save my knees and are great for when descending on steeper hikes. Comfortable grips, easy to adjust and very durable. I will probably use these as touring poles in the winter as well
