There's no comparison!
LEKI are one of the industry’s true specialists
All they make are poles – ski poles, trekking poles and Nordic walking poles – and associated accessories. For over 60 years, outdoor enthusiasts have appreciated the quality, value and technology that go into each and every one of their products.
That’s probably why so many of the world’s top ski racers, not to mention the countless recreational skiers, hikers and Nordic walkers, choose LEKI.
From grip to tip, it’s the quality that counts. Take the grips, for example: comfortable, ergonomic and in a choice of materials to suit every budget and preference. The pole shafts – be they aluminium or 100% carbon – are the strongest available, and designed to last for many years. The locking mechanisms on the adjustable poles are also the strongest available – indeed LEKI are the only pole manufacturer allowed to use the TÜV Sud label – meaning LEKI are the safest choice.
Technical innovations include the Trigger Vertical strap system (likened to a safety binding for a ski pole) which can be combined with LEKI Trigger Vertical gloves for perfect control and comfort on winter touring poles. For trekking poles, there’s the Aergon grip, incorporating the Safety Strap system, and the Dynamic Suspension System, which puts the anti-shock right at the tip of the poles where it can reduce peak impacts by up to 40%.
And every pole is manufactured by a skilled and dedicated workforce in LEKI’s own eco-friendly production facility in the heart of Europe.
Any other pole is just a stick!
