Gear Question

what size of those would You recommend for...

Posted on

what size of those would You recommend for me? I'm 177 cm / 5'10"?

Responded on

I'd get the 130cm. I'm 6'0", and I set my poles between 105cm and 115cm, depending on terrain and load.

But these are without length adjustment option. I've found the sizing chart on BD site and they suggest 120 cm for those between 172 and 182 cm

Pesten, I went through the Z-Pole sizing exercise last year. I'm 5'-11" and went with the 120cm Ultra Distance Trekking Pole. After several trips with these poles, the 120cm length feels great on ups, downs and levels. The "pole length" - in my example, 120cm - is from the pole tip to the top of your hand at the top of the grip (just below the "knob" at the top of the grip) (see pic). The goal is to have your forearm level when holding the pole in this position. Hope this helps.
