These are very light, easy to adjust, and frankly, of a higher quality than I expected for the price. I'm recovering from successful knee surgeries, but still need a foot surgery, so I must very gradually increase my time walking on paved surfaces, and must be very careful to stay balanced on uneven, natural terrain. One cane makes me feel imbalanced, and two are heavy, so a set of poles/sticks seemed worth a try. These walking poles/sticks make me feel more balanced, and are so light, even with the off-road tips, that I walk with a smoother, more normal gait, while still being careful. Also glad they came with everything I needed to use them right out of the box: A variety of tips and a carrying case. Literally was out practicing in my backyard shortly after unpacking them. Very pleased with my first Vive Health purchase. Packaging was perfect, and delivery was very quick.
Thank you very much for this glowing feedback!! We are happy to have you as a customer :) -Carolina- Vive Health CS

My son got hit by a motorcycle in June 2020. He had to get 2 surgeries to put pins and 2 plates in his knee area. He rapidly went from wheel chair to crutches and then a cane. He asked for the poles so he could evenly distribute his weight instead of leaning to one side with the cane, He loves them and ends up getting more exercise by walking more and further. . His therapists are very pleased with him deciding to purchase them.
Thank you so much for your great review! We are so happy to hear that the product is working out so good for your son! Thank you for being a Vive Health Customer-Alice- Vive Health CS

I was given these poles when I was a subject in a university study to see if they helped reduce backpain (for Kyphosis, Scoliosis and Lordosis). I extend them so that my hands are above my elbow when I walk; this forces my back into a more upright position. Wow do they help! I used to avoid going for walks when my back hurt. Now, when my back hurts I just I pick up my poles and go out for a long walk. The pain is gone by the time I get back home. The poles have been a life changer for me. I'm giving them as a gift to others.

How long are the trekking poles when fully extended?
When fully extended, each pole is 57.5”.
Will the trekking poles extend enough to be used by someone over 6 feet tall?
That would depend on your comfortable and safe height in a trekking pole. If it is 57.5” or lower, these poles would work for you.
How do I extend the trekking poles and adjust the hand straps?
There are two places on each pole to extend the pole. First, open the tension lever on the pole and pull it out to extend. Replace the tension lever to lock in place. If you need further extension, there is a lower extension location near the tip. At that location, twist the pole to unlock before pulling out to extend. Once you’ve extended the pole to your desired length, twist the pole to lock in place.
To adjust your wrist strap, push the button where the straps meet on the handle. This unlocks the strap. The strap is looped through the handle three times. Pull on one of the three loops to loosen or tighten. When you have the strap at your preferred setting, grab all three loops and pull firmly to lock the strap in place.
