    ISPO Names Purtrek 2022 ‘Award Nominee’

    Utah-based company recognized in ISPO’s international outdoor products competition for innovative trekking pole with integrated water filter system

    SALT LAKE CITY – June 10, 2022 – Purtrek, a Utah-based outdoor recreation products company, today announced the selection of its trekking pole water filtration system as ‘Award Nominee’ for the coveted 2022 ISPO Awards.

    ISPO, the leading international sports trade fair, designates awards based on a rigorous application process and review by independent editors and selected consumer experts. Its awards highlight the most outstanding products and services in sports. Purtrek’s water filtration trekking pole is one of eight Award Nominees in the current cycle.

    Purtrek founder Kyle Stringham developed the world's first trekking pole with an integrated water filtration system over a five-year period. The system utilizes patented technology to conveniently pump and purify water from lakes, rivers, and other sources.

    “Purtrek’s trekking poles help hikers and backpackers hydrate more efficiently while reducing the amount of gear they need to carry,” said Stringham. “We are honored and inspired to be recognized internationally by the ISPO Organization and community for our approach to water purification, hydration, and outdoor recreation accessibility.”

    The Purtrek system works by submerging the pole into a water source, inserting the drinking tube into a port on top of the pole’s grip, uncoupling the pump slide by twisting the pole, and moving the grip up and down. The water runs through the pole and its integrated, two-stage water filter system, and can be sipped through a drinking tube or channeled into a bottle or hydration bladder. The process only takes a few seconds.

    Benefits of the Purtrek system for outdoor enthusiasts include simplicity, efficiency, and comfort. Everything for filtering a drink of water is right at hand, without having to dig filtration gear out of a backpack; without uncomfortable kneeling, crouching, or potentially falling into the water while trying to get a drink; and Purtrek’s 2-in-1 trekking poles ensure hydration and stability while hiking.

    Purtrek’s two-stage filtration system includes a large particulate pre-filter located at the lower inlet and a high-quality Micro Hollow Fiber Filter in the top third of the pole. The Hollow Fiber filter removes 99.999% of waterborne bacteria, including E. coli and salmonella, and 99.99% waterborne protozoa, including giardia and cryptosporidium.

    The system delivers almost 2-times more water per pump than its competitors and filters up to 528 gallons per filter (2,000 liters).

    Purtrek offers the trekking poles as a set, one pole with the integrated water filtration system and one standard trekking pole, weighted to match the filtration pole. Both poles’ telescoping shafts are made of 7075 aircraft aluminum with aluminum locking tabs and high-strength polymer plastic collars. The filtration pole uses a series of seals, valves, and O-rings to ensure clean drinking water. Both poles are adjustable up to 53" (135cm), 36” (91.44cm) collapsed everyday storage, and the main pole is fully collapsible down to only 26" (66cm) for convenient international travel.

    MSRP for Purtrek’s complete trekking pole system is $189.99 (one pole with integrated filtration, companion pole weighted to match, and carrying bag). Replacement filters are $39.99.

    The ISPO Award program began in 2000 and has recently expended from a once-a-year event into a year-round outdoor products design competition. Each quarter, ISPO designates one Gold Medal winner and a selection of Award Nominees. Its jury consists of consumer experts with deep roots in the sports industry who are members of the ISPO Collaborators Club, as well as independent outdoor journalists.

    ISPO Award winners are brands that have developed products pushing further in the direction of sustainability, lightness, and functionality.

    Purtrek is exhibiting at OutDoor by ISPO in the Utah Outdoor Industry booth (# H2.407), being held June 12-14, 2022 at the MOC Munich Order and Convention Center in Germany.

    To schedule an appointment at OutDoor by ISPO, please contact Kyle Stringham at kyle@purtrek.com.
