Weighing in at 17.57 ounces per pair and featuring easy-to-adjust external locking mechanisms, LEKI Corklite poles are ideal for first time users, hikers or backpackers
Incorporating a positive angle that preserves a natural position for your wrists, the dynamic, lightweight AERGON COR-TEC grips have an ovoid shape that can be palmed or held traditionally. The grips are made from 80% natural ground cork and 20% latex, making them strong and comfortable. Rubberized, dimpled tops offer textured grip points and ultra-lightweight, easy-to-adjust straps reduce stress on your wrists and provide additional security and comfort.
LEKI's Speed Lock 2 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.
Corklite 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.
Sold in pairs, LEKI Corklite trekking poles have a usable adjustability range of 26.4"-53.1".

Real Customer Reviews
- Much better
Likes: I hiked for the first time with trekking poles on a guided tour of Havasu Falls. I was still 50/50 on their use, but decided to give it a shot in the White Mountains of NH near my home. I purchased a set of off brand poles that had strong reviews on Amazon and those poles were horrible! A lot of vibration and other issues that made using them uncomfortable. I returned those and ordered these Leki's after Backcountry Edge awesome customer service matched a competitors sale price. Its Nov in NH now and hiking season is nearly over, but already I can tell these are a huge improvement over the other pair I returned. I think these will sway my decision to use poles more often. Two of Backcountry Edge youtube videos on these poles and how to properly hike with them were a big help! Thank you!
Dislikes: I wish it came with a storage bag and the rubber foot caps some other poles are packaged with.
Likes: The snap locks paired with the tension screw make for quick and easy adjustments.
- They they have a great warranty.
Likes: Light weight
- Excellent Trekking Poles
Dislikes: Wish they collapsed just a little more but it's a tradeoff
