LEKI is pronounced, "Lake-ee". LE is the first two letters of the owner's last name, Klaus Lenhart, and KI is from the location of the company, Kirchheim/Teck, Germany.
LEKI, the world's leading manufacturer of ski, hiking and trekking poles had its start in Kircheim, Germany as a hobby of its founder, Karl Lenhart, an airframe mechanic and avid skier. After successfully creating light-weight poles for his friends, in 1954, the hobby became a full time business.
In 1990, LEKI USA was incorporated. The North American market has embraced the company's line of alpine, Nordic, back country, mountaineering, Nordic walking, and trekking poles. Like their European counterparts who have been loyal to LEKI for nearly five decades, North American outdoor enthusiasts know and appreciate LEKI quality and value.
