LEKI Cristallo DSS trekking poles offer high-performance features at a budget-friendly price. Easy-to-use external locking mechanisms, integrated shock absorption, and ergonomic rubber grips equip the poles for varied terrain.
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.
AERGON Soft rubber grips serve as comfortable, confident handholds while incorporating an ovoid shape that can be palmed or held traditionally. Integrated ultra-lightweight, adjustable straps further 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.
Carbide flex tips deflect up to 30 degrees without damaging the lower pole sections. This reduces the risk of shaft 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 Cristallo DSS trekking poles have a usable adjustability range of 27.2"-53.1".
