I bought these poles because they were highly rated and gave them as a gift to my mother. She is really impressed by their lightweight design and comfortable grips. When you are relying on your poles in tricky situations, you want to make sure that they don't give out on you. The last set I owned... Read More

    I had some Komperdell's that I really liked, but I wanted total anti-shocking, so I got these. On my first try, I didn't feel any difference, in fact, I stated to my hiking partner, that I liked the Komperdell's better. Then I just kept using them. My partner said he saw the anti-shock in effect. These poles stay "intact" better than the Komperdell's did and are easier to use. They will, however, just sort of "unravel" themselves, not at the "clip" part but at the bottom "swivel" part. This hasn't happened a lot to me, but it has happened. I like Komperdell's handle grips better than these (and i wear padded biking gloves when using the poles). These grips haven't left full-on blisters, but it's felt like if I had walked further, that they would. especially on a hot day : (
    I'm a woman who has spinal issues (cervical on down to sacrum) and I can't walk over a block w/out my back beginning to hurt, and these will allow me to go both up and down hills as well as on flat land for 5+ miles. I put the pads on the bottom to walk on concrete or other hard surfaces. The Komperdell's that I have (bought here at Sierra) also were/are good for me, but these seem overall to be a bit "better". I feel so grateful to have found walking sticks in general, as I couldn't get out on the trails before knowing about them. Thanks to Sierra for providing them at great prices, too.

    We got these for my husband in March 2017. We were shipped the older version with the original Speedlocks. Those locks are only marginally okay. He was unable to tighten them enough by hand, and had to use a tool. They still slip sometimes.

    But the real problem was the bottom joint on both poles. Despite how strong he is, he couldn't get it tightened enough to hold consistently. They were constantly slipping, and sometimes the bottom section would just fall out on the trail. On our last hike, the bottom slipped, pulled out almost all the way, and snapped the internal mechanism. There was no way to reinsert it. We're also just over the 90 days, and the product was well used anyway, so we couldn't return it to STP and are pursuing the Leki warranty. We would not buy these poles again.

    Other notes: the antishock on this older version is pretty obvious. You can see it compress and retract. This is not at all visible or palpable on my Leki Carbonlite XL's, which have different joints. Also, the hand straps are not the thick nylon ones as pictured. They are the newer, thinner (and probably more comfortable) type.

    We're still big Leki fans, but this pole has some issues.

    All the features I was looking for at a good price. They are light and comfortable to use. The set I received may have been defective. Once adjusted the cam locks never failed. The lower twist locks are garbage. Even if you crank them down, they would loosen after a quarter mile or so, and slide down under load. The trail I was on was mixed use and muddy. One of the poles stuck in the mud, the lower joint let loose, pulled out, and snapped off. Gorilla tape made it useable but not adjustable. Sierra customer service is great and is sending a new pair. Additionally, the anti-shock mechanism is rather loud. I thought I sounded a little like tigger boing, boing, boinging down the trail.

    This is my second set of Leki's and they work as expected. These poles are rated for 300# which gives me a little more assurance while carrying a loaded pack from those unplanned slips and trips. The description doesn't list it but these do come with the Speed Lock 2 system.

About LEKI

The company behind LEKI ski poles was founded in 1948 by Karl Lenhart. Dissatisfied with the equipment of his day, Lenhart spent considerable time and effort engineering what would soon become some of the best ski poles in the world. In the years since, LEKI poles have evolved from fiberglass composite shafts to aluminum and carbon fiber. In 1974, LEKI trekking poles were the first on the market to feature an adjustable-length shaft and, within four years, the poles were helping climbers summit Mount Everest. Select LEKI poles now feature anti-shock and Speed Lock adjustment technology, and the product range has even expanded to include LEKI gloves specially designed for mountaineering and skiing.
