The Leki Makalu Lite Cor-Tec Trekking Poles are an easy and lightweight solution to aching joints and tired muscles when you're off exploring your favorite trails. No matter the length of your stay in the woods or the difficulty of the terrain, you'll be able to attack the trail thanks to the easy adjustment of the Speed Lock+ system. Light and low-profile, the Speed Lock+ provides a secure hold and up to 14 inches of adjustment, letting you switch your height up quickly when it's time to take on steep summit slopes. A comfortable cork-grip offers a soft feel, moisture wicking performance, and multiple ways to hold as you wander up and down the trail. Rounding it out is a carbide metal tip that delivers a steady and reliable hold on the ever-changing surfaces you'll encounter in the backcountry.
