Ideal for ounce-counting and space-saving hikers mountaineers or trail-runners LEKI Micro Vario Carbon trekking poles offer ultra-lightweight (16.16 oz/per pair) adjustable performance in pack-friendly dimensions.
Incorporating an ergonomic angle that preserves a natural position for your wrists lightweight AERGON Thermo Mid grips have an ovoid shape that can be palmed or held traditionally. 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 extended length of the grips allows you to grasp lower on the shafts eliminating the need to shorten the length of the poles every time you encounter a steep slope or side hill traverse.
The “foldable” design with Speed Lock 2 System consists of a concealed inner cord that runs through all three sections of the poles. After each shaft section is aligned the external lever flips down to tension the pole and lock each section securely in place. This innovative design saves weight and increases collapsibility while still delivering surprising strength and a short range of adjustability of 43.5"-51".
Carbide flex tips deflect up to 30 degrees without damaging the lower pole sections. This reduces the risk of pole breakage if poles get caught between rocks or tree roots on the trail. Small profile 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.

Real Customer Reviews
- Added a few more to our gear inventory
Likes: I bought the LEKI Micro Vario Carbon DSS Antishock - they are the bomb - I will always take them with me. I wanted to outfit my sons so I bought three pair of the LEKI MICRO VARIO CARBON. They are every bit as nice as the DSS version. I find that using trekking poles are an essential tool for me hiking the rocky PA Appalachian Trail and getting up and down even small "mountains". They are very strong, lightweight, and compact.
- Great poles, Great service
Likes: lightweight, easy to extend longer and contract shorter, easy to collapse.
Super good poles, sturdy, nice and stiff
Dislikes: Nothing to dislike about these poles, the price is fair for what you get
