Helvellyn PRO Testimonials
Gary House, RunStrong Coach
"I really love the attention to detail on the new Helvellyn Carbon Pro poles which have been really well thought out, competitive with specifications but more importantly perform really well on the mountains."
Loyd Purvis, Run4Adventure
“I've used a lot of running poles over the years from lots of different brands and the new Helvellyn Pro Carbon fixed length z-poles are up there with the best of them! A really quality piece of running kit at a great affordable price.”
Rhys Jenkins, Pegasus Ultras
“The Helvellyn PRO Carbon are a fricking awesome set of poles for the mountains and trails. Lightweight, easy to pack away and awesome resilience for the tougher runs you have planned. Super duper pumped to take the PRO Carbon to Leadville in 2023.”
Eryn Barber (Ultra Runner magazine)
“The Yorkshire Three Peaks were the testing site for this robust piece of kit. We wanted to ensure it could withstand a multi-terrain environment over a long duration. The poles were a fantastic aid when my legs became fatigued on the incline and were light enough not to be a hindrance when running on the flats.” Read the full review here.
Dave Taylor, Fell Running Guide
"If you're considering using poles for your next ultra or big "Round" make sure you get lots of practice using them in training. These Helvellyn Carbon Pro are lightweight, easy to use and great value for money"
Ronnie Staton, Hobo Pace
"I took the Helvellyn Pros to the 185 mile King Offa’s Dyke race. Within the first 15 miles it appears I was bitten on my shin, which soon became very painful. I had to lean into the poles more than I normally would, battering them for over 70 hours and 30,000ft ascent across the Welsh hills. They stood up to everything I threw at them, solid."
Dan Summers, Dan Summers Running
“The new Harrier Pro poles felt great - sturdy, light weight, well balanced and the price point is almost half the cost of their equivalent in other brands.”
