LEKI Thermolite XL Trekking Poles
Great first set of trekking poles
I just ran with this set for a few days on Mt. Whitney. They worked wonderfully in snow, ice, boulder fields, and gravel trails. They're light enough that you don't notice the weight on your wrists when you're using your hands to navigate elevated rocky terrain.
One of the poles bent after quite a lot of force was placed on it in a boulder field. I was able to bend it back into place easily with my hands and knee. The tips really stick well to all terrains. The plastic right above the tip is garbage, but I'm pretty sure you get that on every set of poles. They're almost falling off after 3 days of rigorous use. The speedlock system worked great. It's very easy to work with thick gloves on, and you should make sure that the snaps are tight before you go on a trip. They loosen up a bit, but not much.

Good choice carbon over rated
I have a very similar pair of these (makalu cork same pole design otherwise) just a couple years old they have never let me down...they are sturdy and not too heavy less your a cry baby I've found the carbon to be over rated of the pairs I've tried out or owned I haven't found a pair as sturdy as these I've tried kompers, black d's both in carbon just seem a bit flimsy also the twist lock may save a millionth of an once but they can be faulty last thing you need is to have one fail on a downhill. Reliable, strong, and best quality. Leki.
