Atlanta, GA – Premier Outdoor Gear has launched two exciting new ultra-lightweight trekking poles for backpackers and casual hikers.  POG has incorporated 3K Carbon Fiber, Aircraft Grade Aluminum and Advanced Polymer Plastics to create lightweight and affordable high-end hiking poles.  The poles are designed to bring balance and stability to a broad range of hikers and walkers and to contribute to their enjoyment and endurance while trekking.

One version of the pole offers the ultimate in compact stowage while the other offers the ultimate in adjustability.  The two models follow Premier Outdoor Gear’s standard of naming products for peaks on popular trails:  Katahdin (pronounced kə-TAH-dən) after the terminating peak of the Appalachian Trail in Maine and Kephart for Mount Kephart in the Great Smoky Mountains. 

The Katahdin Telescoping Trekking Pole features adjustability from 24 inches all the way up to 53 inches.  The Katahdin also features a natural cork handles with padded wrist straps and EVA foam auxiliary handles.  The Katahdin poles weigh in at an astounding 15.2 ounces for the pair.  “The Katahdin is for hikers that need to be able to adjust the pole shorter than most, while still wanting the ultimate in light weight, durability and features” states Nick Rhame, Category Manager.

The Katahdin model telescoping trekking pole is specifically designed for customers seeking the lowest possible weight in an adjustable hiking pole and the ultimate in range of adjustability.  The Kephart Z Fold offers the ultimate in compact stowing, easily fitting inside backpacks, daypacks and carryon luggage.  Both poles are similar in other features and benefits.

The Kephart Z Fold Trekking Poles weigh in at 17.6 ounces for the pair and fold down to an ultra-compact 14 inches for easy storage.  The Kephart poles are adjustable from 45 to 53 inches and feature natural cork handles with padded wrist straps and EVA foam auxiliary handles.  “The Kephart Z Fold Poles are for hikers seeking the ultimate in light weight and compact stowing” says Rhame “we specifically took feedback from our design team to deliver a stable, durable yet lightweight pole”. 

Premier Outdoor Gear’s dedication to delivering the highest quality gear at bargain prices shines in the two new walking pole offerings.  Both the Kephart and Katahdin models are comparable to other carbon fiber trekking poles costing two to three times more.  In addition to getting the hiking poles, POG adds a full range of free accessories that include carrying bag, mud and snow baskets and rubber tips to protect the hard carbide steel tips when not needed.  Most other companies charge extra for these accessories.
