Ideal for ounce-counting female hikers, mountaineers, or trail runners, LEKI Women’s Micro Vario Carbon AS trekking poles offer lightweight (16.9 oz/per pair), adjustable, and shock-absorbing performance in pack-friendly dimensions. Carbon fiber upper shafts and aluminum lower shaft sections excellently balance weight and durability.
Incorporating an ergonomic angle that preserves a natural position for your wrists, lightweight Aergon Compact ThermoLong foam grips are sized for smaller hands. Rubberized, dimpled tops offer textured grip points and ultra-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 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 DSS Antishock system close to the point of impact by placing the system right above the tip of the pole.
The carbon shaft sections are connected by a concealed inner cord that runs through all three sections of the poles. After each shaft section is aligned, pull them taut until you hear the "click" that indicates the ELD (External Locking Device) lock is engaged. This innovative design saves weight and increases collapsibility while still delivering surprising strength. Unlike many foldable poles on the market, these poles also offer a short range of adjustability. By utilizing the integrated easy-to-use Speed Lock 2 lever, you can adjust the length of the poles from 39.3"-47.2". The poles collapse down to 15.7” when not in use.
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 Basket 2.0’s 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 Women’s Micro Vario Carbon AS trekking poles are sold in pairs.
