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 aluminum trekking poles offer durable lightweight (18.55 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.
The Speed Lock System consists of a concealed inner cord that runs through all three sections of the Micro Vario Ti COR-TEC 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 (packed size of 15“) while still delivering surprising strength and a short range of adjustability of 43"-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 Micro Vario Ti COR-TEC poles to be converted for winter use.

Real Customer Reviews
- Like it
Likes: It's lightweight and collapsible. Like the holder. Like the entire design. Backcountry Edge sent me an email of instruction to set it up. Sweet.
Dislikes: It's so hard to get the push button exposed at the first time. I have to hold the bottom part with my feet and pull the upper part with my hands. Tried like for 5 mins? I was doubting whether it existed there for a moment.
- Great Collapsing Adjustable Trekking Poles
Likes: Compact design makes for easy storage. Terrific cork grips are comfortable even with sweaty hands. Good adjustability and locking system.
- Lightweight, easy to adjust
Likes: I wanted lightweight, durable trekking poles and that's what I have. I use these as much for impromptu shelter setup as I do for walking/hiking, and they've done all I've asked of them so far. Great, light, comfortable poles!
Dislikes: None so far.
- first Z poles
Likes: I had used the corklite standard poles before purchasing these and wanted to switch to the Z style. I'm so glad I did. It is way better for traveling and the tension system is so easy to use. I was concerned on having the poles connected by cordage but after seeing how Leki protects it from damage this is no longer a problem in the slightest. You cannot go wrong with a Leki product in my opinion!
Dislikes: cannot collapse as small as the corklite in its "functioning" state but unless you are an EXTREMELY short person this point is moot. Other than that these are perfect.
- Very helpful for balance and stability
Likes: I questioned if I had lost my mind when I purchased these. But I have been climbing a very steep and rocky trail for exercise. At 68 I needed some additional help. I expected them to be helpful in descent, and the egg shaped tops and fully extended the poles are VERY helpful. But also in ascent, they are more helpful than I anticipated. Easily shortened, they help in maintaining balance and footing on the way up. Very strong. Break down and set up are easy. Seem to be very durable. I use the little rubber feet because of the large number of rocks that are walked on for this little hike. Now that I have used them, I would not want to take this arduous little jaunt without them. I like the grip. If I lost them today, I would re-purchase them.
Dislikes: Not a one...
- Love these trekking poles!
Likes: They are sturdy, have great grips and I love how you can dial in the length and then have it stay put! I can break them down for easy storage when I might not want to use them (climbing through rocks, etc) and stow them out of the way entirely. Great feature as well to be able to just palm down to the foam grips from the primary cork grip for changes in terrain height!
- The poles seems to be top notch
Likes: lightweight and compact. Great for carrying
- folds small and compact, quick snap on set up, durable
Likes: folds small and compact, quick snap on set up, durable. I have another set of leki poles that collapses by quick release clips but will not get small enough to fit in a traveling carry on suitcase - these ones will.
Dislikes: None I can think of
- Great Trekking Poles
Likes: Lightweight easy to use.
- Great Product
Likes: Lightweight and most comfortable poles I've tried thus far.
