The Genius Vario Ski Pole is Leki's all arounder for classic cross country enthusiasts and speedy skaters. This pole pairs a durable aluminum upper shaft with a lightweight carbon composite lower shaft, and a secure Speed Lock 2 adjustment point sits in the middle for quick access. The cork handle conforms to your grip with use, and Trigger Shark's Active strap attaches and detaches directly from the handle so you don't have to slip the strap over your glove anymore. Leki equipped the Genius Vario with a 4 in 1 compatible Super Race Vario basket to accommodate any snowy condition. The Carbide Diamond tip cuts through ice to keep you from flailing.
