LEKI Shasta Trekking Poles Video

Transcript

Let’s take a closer look at LEKI’s Shasta trekking poles. You have got a light weight pole, excellent feature set at an affordable price. The Shasta poles have PA core tech grips. That is actually a combination of cork and latex. You can see there is some ergonomics there that make for a comfortable hand hold. Nice woven and padded wrist strap that takes some of the wear and tear off of your wrist during the course of a long day of hiking or an extended back packing trip. By flipping put the mechanism there on top of the grips you can actually adjust where you want those wrist straps to be for the most comfortable fit and then click that right back down into place. The Shasta poles are sold in pairs. Three section telescoping poles. You have got the lower section marked there on that section to show where to lock them in place. And same thing on that middle section. Go ahead and set those. There is internal locking mechanisms out of view here as you tighten those poles. It is actually a mechanism widens from the interior and presses against the interior of the pole section above. It makes this a surprisingly strong lock. At the bottom of the poles you will see four, four and a half inch section here which is LEKI’s carbide flex tip. This is actually a press fit design that will break away if you should get the pole stuck in a crack, between rocks, something that would really jeopardize the pole on the whole. Certainly preferable to have that piece shear away than to have the actual pole sections break. So that is an intentional design. The actual carbide tip at the very end is what bites on the trail itself and gives you that traction. Rubber walking tips are available, though they are sold separately if you wanted to use the poles on improved surfaces. You can also see LEKI’s low profile trekking basket on these poles. Should you get into softer ground, mud, even a little bit of snow, that basket is designed to make sure that the poles don’t actually sink any deeper into the ground than they need to and keep you up on top of that surface. This is interchangeable, again, sold separately. You can get winter baskets, even deep powder baskets, each of which will be broader in diameter so that you get better year round performance out of the Shasta trekking pole.
