The Micro Vario Carbon Antishock Trekking Poles combine a lightweight and sturdy carbon structure with Leki's Speed Lock 2 adjustable pole length system.
With your foldable carbon companion, you're ready for any terrain. Thanks to the push-button release mechanism, you can assemble and disassemble it at lightning speed and it even fits in your hand luggage due to the small pack size.
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.
