Ideal for ounce-counting and space-saving hikers mountaineers or trail-runners LEKI Micro Vario Carbon Women’s trekking poles offer ultra-lightweight (14.96 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 Compact 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 the Speed Lock 2 System consists of a concealed inner cord that runs through all three sections of poles. After each shaft section is aligned the external 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 39.5”-47.25".
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
- Light and sturdy
Likes: This takedown system is fantastic -- no more slipping joints or need to put the poles crosswise in the suitcase to fit. No flex I can feel and the handgrips are adequate. The range of adjustment is small but that seems unavoidable with the design. Fortunately, my wife uses one as short as possible and I use the other as long as possible, and that is perfect for both of us.
Dislikes: It would be nice if the rubber feet were included at this price.
- Worth Every Penny
Likes: Easy assembly and disassembly
Folds up small enough to fit inside my pack
Rock solid support
Easy length adjustment
Comfortable grips for small hands
Easy wrist strap adjustment
Collapsible without having to reset length adjustment
Dislikes: Wrist strap a little rough on the edges, may soften with use, but not sure
- Lightweight poles great for traveling
Likes: These poles are extremely lightweight and compact. Great quality. I used them for a trip to Machu Picchu on the Inka Trail and they stowed away easily in all my travel bags. Comes with a travel bag. The pole height can be adjusted to fit almost all women. I'm only 5'3" and it fit great.
Dislikes: The packaging was very lackluster. Almost seemed like it was used since there was no plastic covering. But maybe that's how all Leki poles come.
