Leki Trail Set Of 2 Trekking Poles
If it's a twistlock trekking pole you want, it's the Leki Trail trekking pole you need. One of very few SuperLock poles still in production, the new 2020 model of the Trail is furnished with Leki's Round Top Comfort smooth CorTec grip, giving you the option of putting your hand on top rather than round the handle. These handles add a layer of cork to give extra comfort when compared to the previous all-rubber versions. SuperLock is the strongest of Leki's locking mechanisms when correctly adjusted, with a massive holding force of over 150kg.
Now part of Leki's vintage line, the Trail pole is a good choice for walkers starting out with poles, or for those who prefer the sleeker aesthetic of a twistlock pole over those with lever mechanisms. The Trail also happens to be one of the shortest-packing of Leki's standard 3-part telescopic pole range at 65cm. Classic design with upgraded handles and a new colour scheme for 2020, the Leki Trail is the go-to option for twistlock performance.

LEKI TRAIL SET OF 2 TREKKING 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.
