Great value for simple but highly effective poles. The Trail poles are super strong and are a great choice of pole providing both strength and comfort with the added antishock feature.
If you're looking for a robust and solid telescopic pole for your hiking tours, the Trail AS is the right pole for you. The anatomically formed Soft Grip sits well in your hand and facilitates good handling. The TÜV-tested Super Lock System withstands every strain. The SAS Lite damping system reduces impact force, thereby relieving joints and ligaments. The three-piece pole can be adjusted in length between 110 and 145 cm and its versatility makes it the right choice for your hiking tours.
Sold as pair.
Leki's Trail Antishock Trekking Poles are a great entry level option. Along with Leki's usual build quality there are still a number of features that make these poles a great choice.
These poles are designed to be strong and durable. They feature the Super Lock which is a twist lock system that allows you to vary your pole length depending on the terrain. The lock has the highest holding force making it really safe. This is great when you have to put a lot of weight on your pole as you can feel the strength of it and it makes you more confident too. The antishock feature is like having a mini suspension in your pole. This takes out some of the pressure when striking the poles down which some people find more comfortable but others find this a bit off putting as it doesn't feel as stable to them. It's completely down to personal preference though.
They are still comfortable poles. They have an ergonomic handle which is hollowed out to allow air movement which cools your palms on those hard walks while the round top is designed to sit comfortably in the palm of your hand when climbing up hills. The safety strap is adjustable so you can adapt it when conditions change.
