Description

You’ll never find two walking sticks exactly alike, so save time with the Khumbu.

Before you head out trekkin’ across the land of the free, get your hands on the LEKI Khumbu Aergon Speed Lock Trekking Poles to help take some weight off your soon-to-be-sore shoulders. These three-section aluminum poles have Aergon grips with an ergonomic shape and the perfect tilt to fit your hands as you hike. The Speed Lock adjustment levers let you change the pole’s length quickly to adapt in dicey terrain. As the miles drag on and your pack gets heavier, let the Khumbu’s carbide flextip absorb the weight as it bends up to 30 degrees, preventing bending or breaking of the lower section of the pole. For winter touring, attach powder baskets (sold separately) and break trail into your own perfect powder paradise.

great poles

These poles are great. The locking system is fantastic - solid and secure. I've seen many other hikers and snowshoers with the twist-lock style and the sections are constantly slipping. I've never had an issue with these. If you're going to be going into some deep snow, I would recommend buying the snowflake baskets - you'll be glad you did.

Good and Solid

Just got back from my first trip with these poles and I am completely satisfied with them. The speed lock system worked great and locked down the poles very solidly even when putting a good deal of weight on them. I am 6'5" and 220 lbs, and these poles were more than enough for me to lean on when I needed the extra balance, also they worked great for my tarp support at night even when i cinched down the tarp tight. These aren't the lightest poles in the world, but I never questioned they're stability and robustness. All around great buy, and my only poles for years to come I'm sure.

These are AWESOME!!!

These are my 3rd pair of trekking poles... and the best. I've also had a pair of cheapies, and a pair of $200 carbon fiber Lekis. The carbon Lekis were super light, but the twist locks started to fail in cold/wet conditions after one season in the backcountry. (Still work when warm/dry, to be fair)

I need something pretty burly for backcountry snowboarding/snowshoeing, and I think these Khumbus fit the bill perfectly. So they are a little heavier, so what? That extra heaviness pays off in toughness. And boy these are tough.

The locking mechanisms come a little loose when delievered, so be sure to tighen them down for a very secure lock the first time you use them.

I have no doubt these will last many seasons and when I need to replace... they are under $100.

Awesome job Leki on some super good gear!

Are these trekking poles ok for youth?

Responded on

Yes, but it depends on the youth's height. They are completely adjustable.
