Updated for 2014! LEKI Cristallo Antishock trekking poles offer high-performance features at a budget-friendly price. Easy-to-use external locking mechanisms, integrated shock absorption and ergonomic grips equip the poles for varied terrain.
Cristallo Antishock trekking poles feature LEKI's Soft Antishock Lite System (SLS) that reduces stress on the joints, muscles and ligaments. The combination of internal steel springs and elastomer creates a smooth and unique suspension system that is quieter and reduces shock more effectively than other designs. LEKI places the absorption system closer to the point of impact by embedding it inside the shafts of the lower pole sections, keeping the springs cleaner and requiring less maintenance.
AERGON Soft rubber grips serve as comfortable, confident handholds while incorporating an ovoid shape that can be palmed or held traditionally. Integrated ultra-lightweight, adjustable straps further reduce stress on your wrists and provide additional security and comfort.
LEKI's Speed Lock system utilizes integrated stainless steel pressure plates 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. NOTE: The lowest shaft sections employ more traditional internal locking mechanisms that provide strong, secure closure without inhibiting the shock absorption.
Carbide flex tips deflect up to 30 degrees without damaging the lower pole sections. This reduces the risk of shaft 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.
Sold in pairs, LEKI Cristallo Antishock trekking poles have a usable adjustability range of 27.2"-53.1".
