Leki's Micro RCM Trail Running Poles are the lightest folding poles they make. With full carbon construction and Leki's lightest Thermo Ultralight grip weight is a priority here. The extended Thermo grip allows more of the pole to be used in the coldest conditions whilst the roll top handle gives added comfort. There is also an ultra lightweight adjustable Velcro wrist strap that is highly breathable. The features of these poles are minimal but this allows the low weight and small pack size.
These poles are not designed for general use and will not react well to trekking with full weight packs and lots of force. They can be packed for an emergency but they are trail running poles. These were perfect for a recent trail running trip in Scotland as they could be folded quickly and easily when they weren't needed on flat non-technical sections. When in use the weight and precision tips allowed me to maintain a good pace on more technical rocky trails which across 60km was invaluable.
