Wild Ginger Running
As a running gear tester of 10+ years for Trail Running magazine and then Wild Ginger Running YouTube channel I was really pleased to be able to help Kate design the Harrier Helvellyn Carbon Z poles.
I've now tested what she has created and I'm delighted to say that they have won the Best Value award in the Wild Ginger Running poles test for their excellent features and low weight at a really fantastic price!
I am looking forward to using them on my next multi-day running adventure.
I just worked the new Helvellyn Poles hard on 2400m + of Welsh hills and found them strong, reliable and light.
I’d happily recommend them to any beginner or mid-pack runner looking for win sticks!

Designed for trail runners
Light, durable, and come with trail and hard surface tips.
Ultra lightweight at only 209g each (223g for long length and with a three-section foldable shaft, the Helvellyn Z poles fold down to just 36cm (37cm long).
Perfect for storing in your Harrier race vest when not in use. The fast lock system makes the height easy to adjust and keeps the pole shaft secure at the joints when in use.
Slim handles make them super easy to attach and remove from your Harrier race vest. The EVA handle design is soft and comfortable whilst still providing excellent grip.
Comfortable hand strap is fleece lined and allows you to make quick decisions on difficult terrain about whether to use or carry your poles.
Carbide spikes are attached as standard for grip on the trails. The poles also come with rubber tips which are ideal on harder surfaces. Mud basket attachments are also included when things get even tougher! The basket is designed to still allow folding even when attached.
All of this comes in a strong, durable carry case to keep all of your pole gear together.
