I expected to have issues with the locking system (I wanted a speed lock) but the locks are easy to adjust to using.
I also was unsure about the soft shock system. It does a good job of absorbing the shock without too much play or rattle. I will see... Read More
Reviewed by Damien from Utah on Wednesday, November 30, 2016Having never used trekking poles before, I wasn't sure what to expect. I knew I didn't want a speed lock pole as I was concerned about [...] getting caught in the lock and I felt, I could lock these down much more. I really like the sleekness of the pole, it doesn't get caught on anything and once they are locked down, they do not move. They do take a little longer to loosen and tighten but I'll credit that to what adds to the strength of the lock. I've gotten them caught in a couple rocks and did feel the tip give but not break, which it was designed to do. The cor-tec grips feel great and have not caused any issues. They are very comfortable to hold going up and down. My first hike with these was a 3400' ascent in 3 miles over sandy, rocky terrain. They held up perfectly. I used them almost entirely going up and 50% of the way coming down. I couldn't get over how well my legs felt the next day. I can partially attribute that to the poles taking some of the strain off my legs. It's so much easier to get over small obstacles while using the poles to help with balance.
If you are ok with having to take a little extra time to adjust them, then gram em. They are well made and will last a good while.
Reviewed by DC Hiker from Washington, DC on Saturday, November 26, 2016I ordered these poles and then read the reviews on the REI website and wondered if I'd made a mistake. Good news: these poles are well-made, sturdy, and easy to adjust. Plus their price at Sierra Trading Post was great for this kind of quality. I've packed them in our checked luggage for one overseas hiking vacation where the poles worked out well. Highly recommend!

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Pete the Hiker from Virginia on Saturday, October 22, 2016The order process was painless. The product was shipped on time and with tracking. I received the product in good condition with excellent packaging that protected the contents. The service from Sierra was courteous and informative. Leki is a reputed supplier of trekking poles made in Europe and is a German company. The poles were very well made and sturdy.

“Does it comes with 4 different tips for any walking surface”
Hi princess the walker,
I only have the carbide tips which are the default type.
You can buy these different types of tips according to the terrains you are walking on.
Hope my answer gives you a better understanding.
It comes with the tungsten carbide tips. It grips on almost anything but you don't want to use it on polished or indoor flooring. IF it bites, it will damage the floor. Mine came with rubber tips as well. They act as a rubber boot Over the other tip. I was worried at first that they might come off on a hike but they stay even in difficult terrain.
FYI, I was More pleased with the poles than I anticipated. I was limited on choices due to my height but as it turns out, I am Very happy with them.
No. All mine has is the carbide tips.
This item only comes with the carbide flex tips.
“Do these poles include rubber walking tips, if no - do you sell them??
no they don't. I don't work for them, so I don't really know.
These do not come with rubber tips. We do not sell any for Leki.
