With an easy-to-use locking system and ergonomic full-featured grips, the LEKI Makalu Lite trekking poles are a solid choice for your next backcountry adventure. Sturdy aluminum construction and a tough carbide tip ensure years of dependable use.
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. 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 poles have a sturdy three-section aluminum construction. 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 trekking poles are sold in pairs.
