Leki's Cressida Antishock trekking pole is built on a women's specific design and a high standard of quality. The Aergon Thermo foam grip is smaller overall in order to fit a women's hand. A shorter strap means less weight and less to worry about. Because of smaller pack sizes, the Cressida Antishock is lighter and shorter to allow for compact storage and when it comes time to break the poles out, thanks to the SpeedLock2 system, it's hassle free. Combine all this with the Super Lock system and the SAS Lite spring system and you'll eat up the miles without feeling the weight of the Cressida Antishock.
