Ideal for ounce-counting and space-saving hikers, mountaineers or trail-runners, LEKI Micro Vario Carbon DSS Antishock trekking poles offer ultra-lightweight (16.9 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.
Micro Vario Carbon DSS trekking 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.
The Speed Lock 2 System consists of a concealed inner cord that runs through all three sections of the Micro Vario Carbon DSS poles. After each shaft section is aligned, the external Speed Lock lever flips down to tension the pole and lock each section securely in place. This innovate design saves weight and increases collapsibility while still delivering surprising strength and a short range of adjustability of 110 – 130cm.
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.

Real Customer Reviews
- Great for running or trekking
Likes: I really like the Leki Micro Carbon DSS Antishock Trekking Poles. They collapse/fold down so that they are easy to carry or put into luggage. I also have the Leki Cork Vario Carbon DSS poles that collapse but do not fold. I did find that the anti-shock was more pronounced in the Cork version over the folding poles, but over the long haul the folding poles will be great.
Dislikes: No real dislikes. It takes a harder tug at first to put the top part down so the button pops out.
