Someone told me he got these from your website, and that they only had a "made in China" sticker on them, not the distinctive trademark of "Made with quality & pride in Czech Republic" that all my Leki poles have on them. Can this be true...is Leki now using items made in China as this would suggest?
thanks!

Responded on

I am not sure where your friend saw a Made in China sticker because these have been and will continue to be made in Europe.

I just received a pair of these from you guys and a "Made in China" sticker is visible on each. What's up?

Good poles

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

It's my 1st pair of poles - due to a knee injury - and I'm real happy with them. They do what they are supposed to do and don't weigh much. Probably worth the price.

Absolutely essential.

These go with me everywhere but to the grocery store. Super lightweight swing makes for hyper-accurate flick of the wrist placement. Saves the ankles and knees with no metabolic cost. Super strong, often gets full brunt of my 215 pounds as I grunt over a high step rock.

Absolutely essential.

Simply the best poles

Bought these to replace my old Leki Makalu, which was a model with a cork handle.
The three areas in which I was looking for improvement were:
1) Lighter weight, while still remaining very strong.
2) Increased thermal isolation for the handle (useful in winter)
3) Better grip: more comfortable in the hand, especially when holding just the tip of the handle in the palm of my hand (useful on descent), and the ability to still have a good grip without changing the length of the pole itself.

The engineers at Leki delivered successfully on on all of the above with these new Leki Carbonlite XL ! They even included a camera attachment for the pole.

The only drawback:there is no model with spring-like shock absorption. For winter however, this is definitely not necessary.

Conclusion: If you want THE VERY BEST lightweight poles, you have found them. No need to look further.

GOOD,but met a problem

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

The leki LEKI Carbonlite XL Trekking Poles are very light ,I felt very good when hiking.But I met a problem,one pole was broken off when I went downhill.I sent a mail to backcountry.com,I haven't received a reply yet until now.I don't know what to do next.
There is a wart,when it's cold ,the poles is difficult to adjust.
