Description Of Leki Backcountry Ultralite SpeedLock PolesLEKI, the worlds leading manufacturer of ski, hiking and trekking poles had its start in Kircheim, Germany as a hobby of its founder, Karl Lenhart, an airframe mechanic and avid skier. Lenhart believed aluminum would make a superior ski pole compared to the heavy steel models available in the late 1940s. After successfully creating light- weight poles for his friends, in 1954, the hobby became a full time business.

The LEKI Backcountry Ultralite Speedlock Poles are ideal for backcountry skiing, snowshoeing, or any backcountry activity that reguires a strong, stable, adjustable pole. A long rubberized handle gives you plenty of space to move your grip down the pole or hold the shaft horizontally to stabilize yourself during a steep ascent. LEKI gave this lightweight but tough aluminum shaft a quick-adjustment system for uphill, downhill, and storage. The Backcountry Ultralite has LEKI's Speedlock device, a securely locking lever on the mid-shaft which loows you to adjust this lightweight pole from 37-55 in (94-140cm). The Twister basket dynamically tilts up to 45-degree from horizontal to match the angle of the slope and to help you gain maximum traction and push. Cross slippery slopes with ease thanks to the long Carbide flextip that bites into ice and deep crust. SpeedLock is a completely new system using unique design features to achieve the high locking force and adjustment security that is up to 10 times stronger than other external locks. The red locking lever is a readily identifiable feature of LEKI's new super-fast adjustment technology. The SpeedLock mechanism offers the highest locking force of any external adjustment system on the market, far exceeding the TUV standard. The simple and easy to use mechanism adjusts quickly and securely even when wearing gloves or when used in rain, ice or snow. Fast, Easy and Reliable. LEKI is the world's leading manufacturer of Skiing, Trekking and Nordic Walking poles. For over 60 years, outdoor enthusiasts have appreciated the quality, value and technology that goes into each and every one of their products. LEKI focuses on extensive European research and independent testing on one thing: making the best poles for each person out there. Because poles, race gear and gloves are LEKI's only business, they aren't distracted with designing other lines of merchandise; LEKI are THE pole experts.
