New for 2013! 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.
LEKI's AERGON Soft rubber grips offer a comfortable, confident handhold while incorporating an ovoid shape that can be palmed or held traditionally. Integrated straps further reduce stress on your wrists and provide additional security and comfort.
Cristallo Antishock trekking poles feature LEKI's Soft Antishock System (SAS) Lite that reduces stress on the joints, muscles and ligaments. The combination of internal steel spring and elastomer creates a smooth and unique suspension system that is quieter and reduces shock more effectively than other designs. LEKI places the SAS Lite system closer to the point of impact by embedding it inside the shaft of the lower pole section, keeping the spring cleaner and requiring less maintenance.
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. NOTE: The lower pole sections utilize SLS internal locking mechanisms which allow the SAS Lite shock absorption system to function effectively.
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.
LEKI Cristallo trekking poles are sold in pairs.
