These poles give you confidence on any terrain. Tough, strong and reliable with the added bonus of the antishock system. These poles are a great choice for more mountainous terrain when loaded with a full pack.
The Sherpa XL Antishock features comfortable Aergon grips including thermal extension, TÜV-certified Speed Lock 2 adjustment system, and lightweight, high-strength aluminium shafts.
On top of that, there's the DSS - the new super cushioning system which reduces the peak impacts by approx. 40% thus protecting muscles, joints and ligaments.
Leki's Sherpa XL Antishock Trekking Poles are strong and durable. They are easy to use and solid which is great on tough terrain.The Speed Lock2 system allows you to quickly and easily extend and retract the poles whenever you need to. They have the Aergon Thermo Long grips which are ergonomic fitting your hand well and useful in colder conditions as you can grip a larger part of the pole comfortably. They have the antishock system which provides a suspension when placing the poles down which some people prefer, particularly on harder ground.
When navigating boulder fields or crossing wet ground these poles stand up to the challenge. These are my preferred poles for trips to Scotland and winters in the Lakes. They are a bit heavier than some of the other poles but this is worth it for the strength.
