Familiarity: I've used it several times

This works well and the way its all help together is really nice. My only complaint is that the levers are a little cheap. They have worked so far but I don't think they will last.

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I bought these for my sister. This is what she had to say.

"Love them so far. Perfect cross country tires, good for hard pack smooth trails. 2.4 gives extra stability and makes the ride feel smooth. I am able to climb with more confidence and success than befoe over more challenging terrain. I was riding on Spcialized Ground Control 2.1 front and 2.3 rear previously."

Fit: Runs small
Height: 6' 1"
Weight: 175 lbs
Size Purchased: 33

These were just what I was looking for. I wanted something a little slimmer and not as long as most offerings. They hit a few inches above the knee. The material is lightweight and very comfortable. The size was a little off for me. I wear a 32 in almost everything but had to size up to a 33 in these.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: Runs large
Height: 6' 1"
Weight: 175 lbs
Size Purchased: large

I didn't like the fabric as much as I had hoped and returned it. I would definitely require an iron after every wash. Even then it looks a little frumpy. Not what I was looking for. It also seemed to run a little big even being a slim fit.

I used to think that I would never use poles unless I was skiing. That has all changed. I am recovering from knee surgery so I picked up a pair of these so I could do a little hiking. They help a lot more than I expected. The extra stability and extra load off my knees is just what I needed. I am sure that I will be using them after I have fully recovered. I really like how light and adjustable these are. Adjusting the height and the straps couldn't be easier. I also really like how fast the go together and collapse.
