Summary

A must have for any strenuous hikes. If you want to master the switchbacks with a heavy back, use these trekking poles.

Pros

  • Stays locked.
  • Lightweight.

Using these is like having an extra pair of legs. You can pull yourself up on the ascent, and eliminate shock on the descent. Good value. If you buy anything more expensive, you're paying too much.

I thought the whole trekking pole thing was just a bunch of hoop-la, until I tried these out on a 2000 foot decent in the Smokey Mountains. The shock absorber feature made them very comfortable and minimized shock on my elbows. The strain these poles took off of my knees was phenomenal.

The poles are very lightweight but at the same time are very durable. They took several inadvertent kicks and snags in tree roots and no damage. These are the first poles I have used, but they are great.

I would have given them five stars, however, the cork handles get a bit slippery in sweaty hands. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who has knee problems or would like to prevent future knee problems!

LEKI Summit AntiShock PolesThe LEKI Summit AntiShock Poles will support your every trek, especially when you're going downhill. Their Soft Antishock System Lite comes with internal springs that absorb shock every time when each pole is driven onto the ground. It also gives a helpful support when you have weak or damaged ankles, knees, or hips. The poles can be adjusted from 27 in. to 55 in. (and locked with the Super Lock System) so you can explore the wilderness comfortably with the right length of poles. For better trekking performance on various terrains, the poles are designed with performance baskets and carbide tips. While the carbide tips offer greater traction on the ground, the performance baskets improves your trekking on snowy or muddy areas.
