The rhythm in skiing comes from pole-planting, so by using the lightning-quick Leki Carbon 14S Ski Pole, you'll need some fancy footwork to keep up. The Extreme Carbon shaft provides exceptional swing weight, strength, and resilience. The grooved slalom grip gives you a secure hold, and the Trigger S integrated grip system with automatic release for safety and injury prevention. As your hands are moving quickly, the Vario straps make for a snug fit with control. Good luck, feet―just try to keep up.

Unimpressed, broke on first day.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I got to own an intact pair of these poles for less than a day. One of the poles broke cleanly in two when one of my tails hit it. An aluminum pole would have gotten scratched. Other carbon poles would have probably survived the incident, but these did not. I did enjoy them greatly for those few hours. The custom Leki glove clip is great and easy to get used to (I still miss it). They feel light and efficient. Despite my bad luck, I have the feeling they are not built to withstand regular use. I replaced them with a pair of $80 carbon poles by Swix, which feel almost identical, do not have the cool Leki clip-on system, but have lasted me more than a day :-)
Can you shorten them? Powder baskets...
Can you shorten them? Powder baskets included?
The LEKI Carbon 14S Ski Pole cannot be shortened, but that is the main reason it is offered in several lengths. It does not come with a powder basket.
