Leki MicroStick Carbon (2013)

£125.00

For ease of use and clarity of design, the Leki MicroStick Carbon is a top choice. The slender 3-section poles collapse side by side to an eminently stowable size, while clicking them into their full length is an efficient and pleasing process. The lower two sections are joined by a plastic-coated inner tensioning cord. Once slotted into one another the ...

Leki Makalu Trail AS (2012)

£55.00

A fairly standard pair of poles from market-leader Leki. They feature an anti-shock system that does provide a decent amount of spring on all terrains (not just road) although it may be a little too soft for some. The poles aren’t the stiffest in the world but they work fine, without any slipping from the twist-lock grips. The real selling ...

Leki Dural 4 (2012)

£120.00

Leki is probably the best-known trekking pole company, and its poles are well-distributed – which makes it fairly easy to find spare baskets when you lose one. While most poles are made with three sections of tubing, the Leki Dural 4  has four shafts – and this has the advantage of making the collapsed size shorter than most poles. However ...

Leki Khumbu

£75.50

A set of sturdy poles that are actually lighter than they look. The strongest of any tested, too. The grips are easy to get on with, with an ergonomic forward-leaning shape that not only sits well in your hand, but also has a good shape for gripping across the top on descents. The flip-up strap adjustment is an excellent feature ...

Leki Corklite

£74.50

The Corklites feature contoured and tilted handles and feel incredibly comfortable in the hand. The natural cork composite is grippy and doesn’t feel cold when held with bare hands in cooler weather. The straps are broad, well-padded and easy to adjust. Performance-wise, they are light, strong and easy to handle. They extend to a lanky 135cm and compact to 61cm ...

Leki Thermolite XL 2010

£93.00

Leki is a well-proven trekking pole brand and the Thermolite XL is one of its latest models. It was good to see it comes with a detailed instruction swing tag, so at least users know how to use it and look after it. The Aergon handle features a quick-release design that allows the wrist loops to be loosened instantly in ...

LEKI TRAIL WALKING POLE

£40.00

Review: Even the most basic design of pole will take its share of the load and improve walking performance. If it’s well-made, strong, reasonably light, ultra-reliable and available for a very reasonable £40 per pair like the Leki Trail, then it’s going to take some beating. The grip is slim, soft and comfy in the hand, and the straps, whilst ...

Leki Sherpa

£66.00

These trekking poles have nicely contoured handles, firmer than most, and comfy straps that are easy to adjust. They extend to 145cm, but the shortest marked length is a relatively long 110cm, although they will go shorter if necessary. These poles feel great on the hill and the Leki Super Lock System is one of the best twist-lock designs on ...

These trekking poles weigh 538g; packed length 69cm; anti-shock; rubber handles; soft, padded hand loops; 135cm max length; good all-rounder; SLS system prevent poles unlocking when twisted 360 degrees while walking; beautifully finished shafts. But others are lighter and have softer handles.

Leki Soft Antishock

£60.00

These Leki Antishock trekking poles are hard to beat. They’re an excellent design with left/right-specific hand straps for comfort. This is one of few designs where the anti-shock works properly. There’s no means of gripping the bottom section, so they may be difficult to undo in winter, although we found the twist-locks easy to adjust and secure under load. That ...

Leki Ultralite Ergometric

£60.00

The handles of these walking poles from Leki are designed specifically for left and right hands, and are very comfortable, with an easily adjustable and secure strap, and a good foam grip. They are light and brilliantly easy to manoeuvre while feeling very secure under pressure. They are simple to adjust, with a positive twist-lock mechanism. The poles have a ...
