The 'Corklite' is a perennial best seller and prime example of a LEKI premium trekking pole with extremely high quality standards. The Aergon COR-TEC (80% natural ground cork) grip allows for an extremely comfortable grip that gets better as the miles wear on. Long days on the trail are easy since the innovative SpeedLock2 system allows for quick customizing of length adjustments for changing terrain. Corklite has long been a favorite with long distance and through hikers.
LEKI is the market leader for walking poles so the quality of these poles is guaranteed. In my experience during a long day on uneven ground the benefits of walking poles seem obvious.
We like the new `Speed-Lock` having experienced poles that cannot be opened or closed the Speed-lock eliminates this potential problem there is a weight penalty though - making these slightly heavier than standard poles.
