A Word About Leki Hiking Poles
I started using Leki hiking poles about 17 years ago to help ease the strain on my knees from long hikes with lots of elevation. I found them especially useful for lessening the impact on the downhill side of things. Those poles still see some use, despite having fallen on them a number of times while backcountry skiing. My use of trekking poles until very recently was pretty sporadic but I've taken them hiking with me 3 times a week for a last month or so. Today's new poles like the Leki Corklite Aergon Speedlock Antishock Poles have so much to offer!
* The new Speedlock feature allows quick length adjustments on the go...in just a few seconds you can bring it down to size for going uphill, or lengthen it for going down.
* Anti-shock technology reduce impacts so the poles are even easier on the joints.
* New materials and manufacturing processes make today's Leki Poles even lighter and stronger.
