Frequently Asked Questions

Montem specializes in high quality gear at an affordable price. With thousands of 5-star reviews, dozens of #1 rankings, and numerous awards, the verdict is in. Montem is better than the competition at 1/2 the price.

Montem poles have been unanimously ranked above primary trekking pole companies such as Black Diamond and Leki. How, you ask? No middle men, no mark ups, no hidden fees. We take pride in devoting our time, effort, and passion to designing the highest quality gear we can while doing everything in our power to keep the price down.

We do this by limiting marketing expenses, minimizing website costs. We DO NOT cut costs on the actual product, which is exactly why we've been called the premier pole on the market.

The design, functionality, and quality is stellar. Simply put, we keep our prices low by not wasting money on what "the other guys" do.

It's super easy! Simply adjust your arms so that they’re at a 90 degree angle while using your Montem Trekking Poles. When adjusting the height of the poles, make sure the number on the top segment of the pole is the same as the one on the bottom.

Flip open the clasp, then proceed to make 1/4 turn adjustments to the screw until you get the desired tension. The bolt should be tight enough that when you close the clasp the pole supports your weight without sliding.

Yes! To adjust the length of the strap pull the tension block out. Once the tension block is removed, you may pull the loose end to tighten the strap, or pull the upper end to loosen the strap.

    My brother, sister, niece and I bought these poles to hike the Camino de Santiago. They did not disappoint! They’re light, easy to use with comfortable grips, and durable. My brothers poles protected him from a bike falling into him with only a minor bend in the end piece. They continued to perform for the next 400 miles. Highly recommended.

    Okay. So I purchased these poles almost two years ago. I was preparing for a trip to Mount Whitney and was replacing some older gear. I was looking to upgrade and go lighter and decided on carbon fiber poles. I use poles a lot in steep country going downhill to take some pressure off of my knees and low back. They definitely help with balance, as well. Many of the other poles I looked at were expensive. Worth it I'm sure, but i was looking to make my money go further as I was upgrading other gear too. The Montem poles were almost half the price of others I looked at. I'd never heard of the name, but figured I would try them out. I took them on a number of preparatory trips and they worked well. They seemed sturdy and were easy to adjust on the go. The cork handles were nice too as they would absorb sweat and did not get slippery or sticky as the handles on my older, aluminum poles did. Last weekend I brought them to Mount Baldy. While crossing a section of trail comprised of jagged rock, one pole got stuck between the rocks. As I wrestled it free, the tip snapped off. I was barely 3 miles into an 11 mile hike. I would need the support of both poles. I was able to MacGyver a fix by wedging a small diameter, sturdy stick into the end. I completed the hike without incident and resolved to contact the company the next day. To be clear, the pole breaking was not a fault in construction or design. I believe it broke due to my haste in trying to continue forward and my over aggressive manner in which I wrenched it free from the rocks. Had I paused and carefully removed it, I don't think it would have broken. Anyway, my hope was to at least purchase just the broken section. I still had one good pole. The broken section could be removed and a new one inserted in its place. I even offered to pay for just one pole. That was not an option, they said. After a bit of back and forth with customer service via email, they finally offered to send me a new pair of poles. Again, my original purchase was almost two years ago. I think the warranty is only for 1 year. If you are uncertain about the quality of these poles, my advice is to try them out. For the price, I think it is worth the chance. Hopefully, my testament to their customer service will help you make your decision.

    Very well made product. Super hand grips, easy peasy clamps to adjust height. Surprised my wife with these post op; she loves them and I got bonus points for being so thoughtful. Gonna get myself a set as well for hiking.

  4. Johnny E.

    Great for hiking rocky uneven trails, easily collapsible and stored easily in my backpack when not needed for trekking. Proved to be a very sturdy, supportive, user friendly product.

  5. Sandy

    They were phenomenal! Someone stole them so My daughter replaced them. Apparently they are popular. I would recommend these.

  6. Roger R

    The poles are handsome and well-designed. Height adjustments are straight-forward and seem secure. The hand-grips are comfortable. The poles are light-weight and fit nicely in a standard suitcase.

  7. Jody W.

    I love these poles. They are very attractive and strong. My partner is sharing one pole with me so far. He loves his also. Thanks for being a responsible company marking excellence in what you do. Jody

    These were perfect for our Utah hiking trip!

  9. Wesly S.

    Got for our son's upcoming trip to China (gets to walk along the Great Wall) and with issues with his left Leg and foot his PT suggested he get a pair of these to stabilize him when walking on unlevel ground.

  10. AC

    These poles are lightweight, durable, and really easy to use. The handles are extremely comfortable as well.

Finally, an affordable carbon pole. Montem answers the most common gripe-price-with this sub-$80 offering that performs like it costs twice as much.

After about 40 hours of testing on trails, streets, beaches, and many places in between—including extensive handling and testing in a physical-therapy office, among therapists, nurses, patients, and doctors in an orthopedic group—we’ve determined that the Montem Ultra Strong Trekking Poles are the best for nearly everyone. They’re simple to set up and use, comfortable, and ready to take a beating. Also, they’re a bargain.

Montem nailed important details like choke-up extensions on the grips, in-field adjustments for the locking mechanism, and easily adjustable straps
