Not only will hiking with the Leki Thermolite XL Antishock Trekking Poles take a load off your legs, but it will give your hands something to do too. Every feature on these poles has been carefully considered to optimize your comfort on the trail. Starting at the top and working your way down, these poles are fitted with Leki's soft and durable Aergon Thermo XL grip, which you can choke up on during traverses and climbs. The durable aluminum shaft strikes a balance between strength and weight and can be adjusted to suit the terrain with a quick flick of the Speedlock 2 locking mechanism. An anti shock system makes for a smoother hike over rough and rocky terrain. To sweeten the deal even more, the poles' wrist straps are quick to dry and moisture wicking.
