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 Lady DSS Antishock aluminum trekking poles offer durable, lightweight (18.77 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 Compact 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 Lady 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 Lady 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 100 – 120cm.
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
- Excellent Weight, Great Grips, Easy to Use
Likes: Grips, cord is comfortable and conforming to small hands. Weight is a bit heavier than expected by only a few ounces (plus comparing to Black Diamonds), Very easy to use, adjust, assemble (lock in place). Highly recommended for women hikers due to length and grip.
Dislikes: No way to 'tame' the poles when collapsed, the section tend to be flopping everywhere, but there is a stuff sack. Velcro (hoop/loop) straps would be nice. The plastic 'clamps' that came with it are awkward and come off too easy, not practical in the outdoors. But is a minor issue when compared to all the great features.
- Just what I needed.
Likes: It's lightweight and fits in my stow on the go osprey backpack, it's just what I needed for those hills The handle is ergonomic and is very comfortable in my hand
My knees are already thanking me.
- Leki Micro Vario Ti Cor-tec lady DSS antishock Trekking Poles
Likes: lightweight, compact for travel and carrying on backpack, small cork handle that fits well in hand, easy to adjust, appear sturdy even though collapsible,
Dislikes: I gave this item 4 stars instead of 5 because I am not sold yet on the "DSS" anti-shock system compared to the older models and even though these are rated as "durable" only time will tell how these adjustable poles hold up. Also, the wrist straps could be improved with this expensive of a pole. They do not adjust small enough and are not comfortable with my small wrist.
