An elegant set of poles with the durability to endure any backcountry adventure, the LEKI Black Series Carbon effectively balance weight and performance with a hybrid aluminum and carbon construction and extended grips with real cork.
Incorporating a positive angle that preserves a natural position for your wrists, the dynamic lightweight Aergon Air grips made with real cork have an ovoid shape that can be palmed or held traditionally. Rubberized tops with a diamond surface pattern offer textured grip points and lightweight easy-to-adjust straps reduce stress on your wrists and provide additional security and comfort. The extended length of the grips allows you to grasp lower on the shafts, eliminating the need to shorten the length of the poles every time you encounter a steep slope or side hill traverse.
The combination of aluminum and carbon construction effectively balances strength, durability, and weight. Per pair, the poles weigh in at just 16.6 ounces. By utilizing the integrated easy-to-use Speed Lock 2 Plus levers, you can adjust the length of the poles from 39.4"-53.1".
Carbide flex tips deflect up to 30 degrees without damaging the lower pole sections. This reduces the risk of pole breakage if poles get caught between rocks or tree roots on the trail. LEKI's Trekking Baskets are included and are interchangeable with other baskets (sold separately).
The poles are treated with a matte-clear coat to protect them from scratches while providing an attractive polished finish.
LEKI Black Series Carbon trekking poles are sold in pairs.
