Weighing in at only 16.8 ounces per pair and featuring innovative grips and external locking mechanisms, LEKI Corklite trekking poles are ideal for thru-hikers and ounce-counting backpackers.
Incorporating a 15-degree positive angle that preserves a natural position for your wrists, the dynamic, lightweight AERGON COR-TEC grips have an ovoid shape that can be palmed or held traditionally. The grip is made from 80% natural ground cork and 20% latex, making it strong and comfortable. A rubberized, dimpled top offers a textured grip point and easy-adjust straps reduce stress on your wrists and provide additional security and comfort.
Corklite 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.
LEKI's Speed Lock system utilizes an integrated stainless steel pressure plate to provide a secure lock and keep pole sections from slipping. The fiberglass-reinforced mechanism resists stretching so it retains its locking ability after repeated use. Adjusting pole length on-the-fly has never been easier.
LEKI Corklite trekking poles are sold in pairs.

Likes: Great poles. I've got another set of LEKIs that I use and love, but these are my new goto poles. The speed lock system is great and holds solid, that's the biggest upgrade for me. I'm a big van of cork grips and boy do these deliver. Super comfy and they feel great even after hours.

Likes: Replaced my old black diamonds with these . they are a bit lighter and have a nice cork handle which feels better after hours of walking. They lock tight nothing has come loose so far. Also thinner in the shaft and handle which works for me then my old pair.

Zoomify would go here, or a larger image... This is a temporary placeholder... The settup of this may change depending on whether we are in fact using Zoomify.
Rotate SWF would go here... Greg will reconfigure this after we have an actual example. This is just a place holder.
