LEKI's Khumbu Antishock trekking poles offer a full-range of performance features. External locking mechanisms on the upper sections and ergonomic grips equip Khumbu Antishock poles for varied conditions.
Khumbu 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 Round Top Soft grip offers a comfortable, confident handhold while offering an ovoid shape that can be palmed or held traditionally. Integrated straps further reduce stress on your wrists and provide additional security and comfort.
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.
Khumbu Antishock 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 Khumbu Antishock trekking poles are sold in pairs.
