Combining lightweight design with features like antishock advanced locking mechanisms and ergonomic grips LEKI's Cressida DSS Antishock Women's trekking poles offer support and durability at a weight of only 15.6 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 an angle that preserves a natural position for your wrists dynamic lightweight AERGON Thermo Compact grips have an ovoid shape that can be palmed or held traditionally. A rubberized dimpled top offers a textured grip point and easy-adjust straps reduce stress on your wrists and provide additional security and comfort.
LEKI's Speed Lock 2 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.
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.
