Combining lightweight design with features like integrated antishock, advanced external locking mechanisms, and ergonomic cork grips, LEKI Corklike DSS trekking poles offer support and durability at a weight of only 17.98 ounces per pair.
The poles feature LEKI's Dynamic Suspension System (DSS) that reduces stress on the joints, muscles, and ligaments. This system reduces the peak impact force by up to 40%, protecting muscles, joints and ligaments. LEKI places the DSS Antishock system close to the point of impact by placing the system right above the tip of the pole.
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.
The 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 DSS trekking poles have a usable adjustability range of 39.5"-53.1".

Real Customer Reviews
- Simple and effective
Likes: I had these poles for my second backpacking trip I went on. The trail system I was on flooded the previous year and caused mass erosion to the trail, roads, and bridges. I still wanted to complete the whole trail and I am glad I brought these poles along. Parts of the trail were completed destroyed, wet, and covered with fallen rocks. The poles allowed me to keep my balance consistently without fault. The poles were stable enough to hold my weight plus the pack when coming close to falling. I would also say that the updated antishock feature on the poles did reduce strain over a long day of hiking.
Dislikes: None so far.
