For durable, adjustable, and easy-to-use poles suitable for a wide range of backcountry adventures, look no further than the LEKI Makalu Lite AS trekking poles. These aluminum poles utilize simple lever locks to maintain your preferred length and have built-in shock absorption for all-day comfort.
Incorporating a positive angle that preserves a natural position for your wrists, the dynamic lightweight Aergon Air grips 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.
These poles feature LEKI's Dynamic Suspension System (DSS) that reduces stress on the joints, muscles, and ligaments. This system reduces the peak impact force by up to 40%, protecting muscles, joints, and ligaments. LEKI places the shock absorption system close to the point of impact by positioning it right above the tip of the pole. By utilizing the integrated easy-to-use Speed Lock 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).
LEKI Makalu Lite AS trekking poles are sold in pairs.
