When it comes to trail running, every gram you save counts. Therefore, your trail running poles should ideally be made of carbon material so that you don't have to carry around unnecessary weight. Carbon is not only light, but also stable, which is a great advantage off-road. If you want to save money, you can of course also use poles that are partly or entirely made of metal. No matter if the poles are made of carbon or metal, they should be foldable so that they can easily fit in a backpack.
