The Helinox LBB135 trekking pole combines two systems: a vertical lever system and a push button system. The vertical alignment of the lever provides a longer leverage for easier operation, without creating a protrusion. The dual cam system distributes the load, reducing deformations and ensuring a high locking force, therefore resulting in reliable performance. The lever-resting zone relieves all pressure on the mechanism when the pole is collapsed.
Statement by the Jury
The innovative combination of the two systems of lever and push button used in the Helinox LBB135 sets new standards in terms of the performance and functionality of trekking poles.
