Product Highlights

Ideal for thru-hikers and ounce-counting backpackers, LEKI Carbonlite XL trekking poles offer premium performance at weight of just 14.8 ounces per pair! LEKI even includes an adapter to convert one of the poles to a camera monopod.

Incorporating a 15-degree positive angle that preserves a natural position for your wrists, lightweight AERGON Thermo XL grips have an ovoid shape that can be palmed or held traditionally. A rubberized, dimpled top offers a textured grip point and easy-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 shaft, eliminating the need to shorten the length of the poles every time you encounter a steep slope or side hill traverse. The included AERGON Photo Adapter allows you to take photos using your trekking pole as a stable monopod. The AERGON Photo Adapter includes a universal threaded camera mount that allows you to easily fix your point-and-shoot camera to the grip.

LEKI's Super Lock System (SLS) uses wide thread patterns and steep-angled lock mechanisms to provide quicker and easier adjustments and is up to 60 times more secure than other locking systems. The SLS locking system is far less prone to loosening while in use, giving you peace of mind even in challenging situations.

Carbonlite XL poles employ carbide flex tips that deflect up to 30 degrees without damaging the lower pole sections. This reduces the risk of pole breakage if the pole should get caught between rocks or tree roots on the trail. Standard trekking baskets are included and are interchangeable with a simple screw on/off design that stays secure. Optional snowflake and deep powder baskets (sold separately) allow the poles to be converted for winter use.

NOTE: Designed to be ultra-lightweight, carbon shaft trekking poles do forfeit some of the durability found in aluminum poles. Due to this trade-off and unlike the lifetime shaft warranty offered by LEKI on its aluminum poles, the Carbonlite XL trekking poles feature only a one-year limited warranty for shaft breakage.

LEKI Carbonlite XL trekking poles are sold in pairs.
