As a long time Leki owner, I was a bit reluctant to change brands, but the price on Sierra Trading was just too good to pass up, and I'm glad I did! These Komperdell Pure Carbon poles are much lighter than my old Lekis. They have proven to be very strong, the black/orange color scheme is great looking and I love the simplicity and effectiveness of the PowerLock system.
