A high-performance option for trail running or ultra-lightweight thru-hiking, LEKI Ultratrail FX One trekking poles utilize carbon construction, have innovative fatigue-reducing grips, pack down small, and weigh in at less than 13 ounces per pair (120 cm length)!
Trail Shark grips employ LEKI's dynamic Shark Frame mesh straps to create a connection point between your hands and the poles. This provides ergonomic performance, enhances agility, and effectively transfers power while in use. A security release system enables you to quickly connect and disconnect from the poles to change your grip position. If you prefer, you can remove the straps entirely and use the poles without them. These grips have an extended length that make it easy to grasp lower on the shafts, providing better control when you encounter a steep slope or side hill traverse.
The "foldable" design of the poles consists of a concealed inner cord that runs through all four carbon shaft sections. After each shaft section is aligned, a push button lock tensions and locks the poles securely in place. Simply pull on the aligned sections until you hear the confirming "click" that the sections are locked securely in place. When you are ready to collapse the poles, push in the lock button to disengage the lock and fold up your poles. This innovative design saves weight and reduces packed size to just 14.2".
NOTE: While the poles do offer foldable collapsibility, they are not height-adjustable. To accommodate varying heights and preferences, the poles are available in fixed length options in 5 cm increments ranging from 105 cm (41.3") all the way up to 135 cm (53.1") in length.
The poles use low-profile carbide trail running tips. The carbide provides strength and grip while minimal baskets reduce the risk of the poles getting caught between rocks or tree roots on the trail.
LEKI Ultratrail FX One trekking poles are sold in pairs.
