The Micro Vario Carbon Antishock Trekking Poles combine a lightweight and sturdy carbon structure with Leki's Speed Lock 2 adjustable pole length system. This is a flagship for Leki and one of the best poles on the market.

Leki says:

The Micro Vario Carbon AS is extremely versatile and equipped with numerous details. In addition to the anatomically formed AERGON grip with Thermo extension and the super simple Speed Lock 2 Adjustment System comes the new and easy-to-use ELD External Locking Device. With a simple push, the pole can be folded together to a packing size of 40 cm in the blink of an eye. The newly developed system also gives the pole more stability. The DSS Antishock System reduces impact force by around 40%, thereby relieving joints and ligaments. Weighing just 252 g, this carbon folding pole is ready for every situation.

Sold as pair.

The Leki Micro Vario Carbon Antishock Trekking Poles are very light and have a small pack size compared to more conventional models. Very similar to Leki's Micro Stick Carbon Trekking Poles, it employs carbon material to reduce the weight even further - and they've done an excellent job, the resulting poles are stiff and strong, and very easy to deploy.

The main difference is that these poles feature Leki's Speed Lock 2 adjustment system which means you can adjust the length of the pole to suit the terrain. This does make them a tad heavier but not by much. These poles are also equipped with a dynamic Antishock system which absorbs the impact as they strike hard into the ground. In the past we've not stocked Antishock poles as the mechanisms usually add unwanted weight, however Leki have managed to incorporate the system without adding unwanted weight.
