LEKI – a German company is a leading manufacturer of hiking, skiing and trekking poles and Nordic walking poles as well.
LEKI poles have certain unique features, making them very attractive indeed.
LEKI Speed Pacer Vario poles are made from 100% carbon fibers. Speed Pacer Varios are unique, allowing a +/-5cm adjustability, not so much to allow use by different-sized people, but rather to enable small adjustments, depending on conditions and on the type of workout desired.
Longer poles generally provide a better upper body workout, shorter ones allow a faster cadence. Small adjustments can ‘dial-in’ the poles depending on the terrain.
The LEKI Speed Pacer Varios are made from 100% carbon, have a very useful quick release “trigger” strap. A good choice for the serious Nordic walker.
LEKI Traveller poles, which as their name suggests are designed for easy travel, collapse down to only 26 inches, enabling them to fit into an average size suitcase, without the need to carry them in a separate, often troublesome package.
These three-piece, adjustable poles are made in two basic versions – aluminum and carbon, are lighter and thinner than most, but solidly built and with a swing balance approaching many one-piece designs.
The LEKI Instructors are adjustable 2-section poles with aluminum/carbon construction that reduces overall swingweight and promotes a quicker pace for advanced fitness walkers. A full-featured, practical design, allowing use by different-sized people.
All of the above LEKI poles have the very convenient quick release trigger strap and come with an instructional DVD and are now available in our store.
