Makalu Lite Cor-Tec Trekking Poles

The Leki Makalu Lite Cor-Tec Trekking Poles are an easy and lightweight solution to aching joints and tired muscles when you're off exploring your favorite trails. No matter the length of your stay in the woods or the difficulty of the terrain, you'll be able to attack the trail thanks to the easy adjustment of the Speed Lock+ system. Light and low-profile, the Speed Lock+ provides a secure hold and up to 14 inches of adjustment, letting you switch your height up quickly when it's time to take on steep summit slopes. A comfortable cork-grip offers a soft feel, moisture wicking performance, and multiple ways to hold as you wander up and down the trail. Rounding it out is a carbide metal tip that delivers a steady and reliable hold on the ever-changing surfaces you'll encounter in the backcountry.

Bought these for my wife, and after hearing her complaints, I tried them and completely agree. They are noisy at the joint adjusters, the locking mechanisms loosen up and then poles collapse ( even after tightening the clamps), and the cork handles sweat more than other materials. So we are returning them.

Worked like a charm

I've used it several times

I have use the poles for both hiking and snowshoeing, I am impressed with how light the poles are being alumium vs carbon, plenty light for me. The locking levers work very well, the cork grips are comfortable, no issues at all with the poles, I did order snow baskets to use while snowshoeing, they screw right on without any problems, well designed poles!


How to tell if the price of the hiking pole comes in a pair or just a single pole?
