Combining lightweight design with features like advanced locking mechanisms, extended ergonomic grips, and power-transferring straps, LEKI's Thermolite XL Vertical trekking poles offer support and durability at a weight of only 17.1 ounces per pair.
Incorporating an ergonomic angle that preserves a natural position for your wrists, lightweight AERGON Thermo Long grips have an ovoid shape that can be palmed or held traditionally. Rubberized dimpled tops offer textured grip points and 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. LEKI’s Trigger S Vertical strap provides a secure connection that better enables you to transfer power when using the poles. A security release system enables you to quickly connect and disconnect from the poles to change your grip position. If you prefer, you can remove the straps entirely and use the poles without them.
LEKI's Speed Lock 2 system utilizes integrated stainless steel pressure plates to provide a secure lock and keep pole sections from slipping. The fiberglass-reinforced mechanism resists stretching so it retains its locking ability after repeated use. Adjusting pole length on-the-fly has never been easier.
The poles employ carbide flex tips that deflect up to 30 degrees without damaging the lower pole sections. This reduces the risk of pole breakage if the pole should get caught between rocks or tree roots on the trail. Standard 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.
Sold in pairs, LEKI Thermolite XL Vertical trekking poles have a usable adjustability range of 39.5"-53.1".

Real Customer Reviews
- The best option is the glove like straps
Likes: Locking mechanisms are great and the measurement number guides are good when having to extend the poles. The best part is the glove like straps, easy on and off the poles. Added positive point is the orange color on the sticks, so if you drop one you can find it easily.
