Ideal for hikers, mountaineers or trail-runners who value maximum collapsibility but don’t want to part with adjustability, LEKI Micro Vario Ti COR-TEC DSS Antishock aluminum trekking poles offer durable, lightweight (19.75 oz/per pair) performance in pack-friendly dimensions.
Incorporating a 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 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 Ti COR-TEC 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 Ti COR-TEC 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 product. Used for 2 weeks in Patagonia.
Likes: The trekking poles are very easy to collapse and are very compact for storage on your when not in use. Light weight, very sturdy, and the antishock feature seemed to work. After a long day of hiking my arms were not an issue.
Dislikes: None so far. I only used them for the two weeks while hiking the Patagonia flats. Term meaning the up and downs of hiking in the mountains and trails of Patagonia.
- Leki Micro Vario DDS Antishock
Likes: Excellent pole , lightweight and easy to assemble. Flawless performance on the trails, Dependable when needed. Used daily for hiking and a walking staff/cane for balance. Excellent warranty and workmanship.
Dislikes: Really none except personal preference is that the lower part of the pole for me was just a little to long before extending the upper shaft. Definitely not a deal breaker. Awesome warranty.
