Leki Grey Journey Set of 2 Walking Poles
The Leki Journey walking pole offers Leki's top reliability and comfort for occasional users and shorter journeys. Formerly known as the Leki Tucson trekking pole, the updated Journey sports a new Evo Con Grip for greater comfort along with updated SpeedLock+ adjustment. It's therefore a great way into using poles and will support many a day walk for taller and/or heavier users.
SpeedLock+ is a lighter, smaller evolution of the Leki SpeedLock (also known as SpeedLock 1), their original external locking mechanism. Adjustment is as quick and simple as flicking a lever and with a holding force of over 70kg it's ready to be relied upon throughout your journey.
The Evo Con grip adds both greater comfort and a new aesthetic to the Journey. Based on the supremely comfortable Leki Aergon grip, the smooth rubber handle puts your wrist at a neutral angle to protect your joints. The rounded top can also sit neatly in your palm, giving you an additional holding option for short downhill sections.
Pragmatic and practical with Leki's quality of build and reliability - with the Leki Journey your horizons will open up.

LEKI GREY JOURNEY SET OF 2 WALKING POLES
LEKI Lenhart GmbH was a spin off from the wood processing plant of Karl Lenhart created in Dettingen under Teck in 1948, which produced the wooden letters for lettering used by bakeries or butchers.
LEKI's unique development started as a result of the founders' personal dissatisfaction: Karl Lenhart, an avid skier himself, was less than impressed by the quality and functionality of the ski poles of the time. Therefore, he used his own machine park to manufacture grips and baskets for skiing poles. These went into mass production in the 60s. On the other hand, Lenhart was familiar with aluminium and composite processing on account of his aircraft manufacturing experience. In 1970, he used these raw materials to produce his first ski poles to be sold under the LEKI brand, which stands for the owners and the company headquarters, i.e. Lenhart in Kirchheim.
