The Women's Micro Vario Carbon Antishock Trekking Poles combine a lightweight and sturdy carbon structure with Leki's Speed Lock 2 adjustable pole length system.
The women's version of the extremely versatile Micro Vario Carbon AS is specially designed for female hands. The anatomically formed AERGON Thermo Long Grip sits nicely in your hand and gives you a large supporting surface on the handle. The newly developed ELD External Locking Device makes folding the pole together quick and easy. The special design provides the pole with even more stability and security. The DSS Antishock System is gentle on joints and absorbs around 40% of the impact force. The pure carbon folding pole can be quickly fixed to a length of 100-120 cm thanks to the Speed Lock 2 Adjustment System, making it a reliable companion on the mountain.

The Women's Leki 2019 Micro Vario Carbon Antishock Trekking Poles are very light and have a small pack size compared to more conventional models. Very similar to Leki's Micro Stick Carbon Trekking Poles, it employs carbon material to reduce the weight even further - and they've done an excellent job, the resulting poles are stiff and strong, and very easy to deploy.
The main difference is that these poles feature Leki's Speed Lock 2 adjustment system which means you can adjust the length of the pole to suit the terrain. This does make them a tad heavier but not by much. These poles are also equipped with a dynamic Antishock system which absorbs the impact as they strike hard into the ground. In the past we've not stocked Antishock poles as the mechanisms usually add unwanted weight, however Leki have managed to incorporate the system without adding unwanted weight.
