A traditional design paired with antishock and COR-TEC ergonomic grips LEKI Makalu Antishock trekking poles provide rugged durability and consistent trail performance.

Makalu Antishock trekking poles feature LEKI's Soft Antishock System (SAS) Lite that reduces stress on the joints muscles and ligaments. The combination of internal steel spring and elastomer creates a smooth and unique suspension system that is quieter and reduces shock more effectively than other designs. LEKI places the SAS Lite system closer to the point of impact by embedding it inside the shaft of the lower pole section keeping the spring cleaner and requiring less maintenance.

Incorporating a 15-degree 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.

The Makalu Antishock features LEKI's Super Lock System (SLS). Taking advantage of wide thread patterns and steep-angled lock adjustments the SLS design allows for quick and easy adjustments and is up to 60 times more secure than other locking systems. The SLS locking system is far less prone to loosening while in use giving you peace of mind even in challenging situations.

Makalu Antishock 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 Makalu Antishock trekking poles weigh 19.97 ounces per pair and offer an adjustability range of 43.3”-57”. The poles collapse down to a length of 27.16”.
