LEKI Carbonlite XL Trekking Poles
Someone told me he got these from your...
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?
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?
- 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.
LEKI trekking pole - a versatile item

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.
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.
