Light and sturdy, the LEKI Super Micro cane collapses to a super-short 18.1 inches, making it ultra-convenient to take along on all your travels. NOTE: The maximum usable length of the Super Micro is only 35 inches.
Delivering ultra collapsible performance with the quality we would expect from LEKI, the Super Micro is perfect for travel or every day use on all types of surfaces and terrain.
This pole is a three section telescoping pole that will collapse down to a mere 18.1 inches. This is perfect for travel when you need to throw it in a suitcase or when you need to col-lapse it down and it is just very convenient pack size.
The three shaft sections of this pole are LEKI’s very durable, yet lightweight aluminum. And they back their aluminum shafts of their poles for a lifetime guarantee. So that just speaks to the durability and the quality of LEKI.
Let’s take a look at the locking mechanisms here. You have LEKI’s Super Lock System, which is an internal locking mechanism. And the way you adjust this pole is really easy. You just loosen it up to adjust the pole and you basically just put it at whatever length is right for you and give it a little bit of a turn and just tighten that up. So the Super Lock System is very, very secure.
On the bottom section is the same way. So there aren’t any markings on this pole. The usable length of the shaft sections are the entire length of the shafts. So there is one marking and that is just the stop max. That just means that you shouldn’t go above that line. But pretty much anywhere else on the pole you are able to tighten that up and have very, very secure fit.
Moving up tot he grip you have the LEKI Aergomed grip. And you can use this in a couple of different ways. You can use it as a traditional cane style handle. You have a little bit of an extension there, so you can also use it more like a traditional trekking pole. You can use it that way. You also have a nice safety strap there that can just take some of the pressure off of your wrists as you are walking for long days with this cane.
Down at the tip you have LEKI’s carbide flex tips. And that just means that this is a replaceable piece. So after years of use this is just a press fit tip. You can get replacements, take the old one off, put the new one on. And it also comes with a rubber tip on the end. So this is great on improved surfaces or walking indoors when you need that extra grip, that rubber grip there. But if you are outside, if you are traveling or walking on different surfaces, you can use that carbide tip end. This is the same material that is used in a lot of other LEKI trekking poles. So this is going to give you a lot of traction on different types of terrain.
This travel cane is going to be great for anyone who needs a very compact, but also very sturdy and secure pole. And, like I said, that usable length you have a lot of adjustability with this pole. But you can also collapse it down to be very, very small. There aren’t very many other travel canes like this that will compact down to be this small with that 18 inches collapsed length.
So all in all you have reliable performance from LEKI in a very easy to use package.
It is the LEKI Super Micro Travel Cane.
