New LEKI Poles – Improved Comfort

2014 – There’s been a re-design of our favorite trekking pole.  We love the comfort of the foam grip….it’s SO worth an extra $20 over the composite or rubber grips.  Also, the long foam grip is wonderful for frequently changing or rocky terrain – when you’re not using the straps.

The redesigned strap is sleeker and many people find it more comfortable.  Here’s photos of the 2 models we like – the Double SpeedLock and the SpeedLock Anti-Shock.  Click on the REI link below to shop REI – we get a small commission and it costs you nothing.  Thank you!

  1. Your recommendation of the Leki Thermolite only comes in XL which is a larger grip. Is this a much larger grip than all the other Leki poles? I can’t seem to find much information on the XL grip and the Thermolite doesn’t only comes in XL.
