Great value for such a strong and reliable set of poles. The aluminium construction make these a great choice for difficult terrain, when carrying extra weight or those who simply want extra confidence from a solid pole.
The legendary LEKI Makalu has been at the sides of climbers and hikers on their tours since 1974. The classic hiking pole impresses with its comfortable AERGON Thermo Grip and intuitive Speed Lock 2 Adjustment System, which provide impeccable performance on the mountain. The shaft, made from aluminium HTS 6.5, provides great stability and makes the LEKI Makalu your robust companion for all tours.
Sold as pair.
Leki's Makalu Trekking Poles are designed to provide strength and confidence on any terrain. These poles have the Aergon handles which are shaped to be more comfortable in your hands. They also have the Speed Lock2 mechanism which allows you to extend and reduce the length of the poles quickly and easily depending on whether you are going up or down hills.
For the price you get a pole capable of performing on serious hills, soft muddy ground or casual walks out. These poles don't flex with the added weight that comes from a fully loaded pack or when they dig in to support you on soft muddy ground. This gives you extra confidence when you are out on more adventurous treks without weighing too much.
