Item Description

Made in Europe.

The "Trail Antishock" unites optimal technology with comfortable movement. Its Round Top Comfort Soft grip makes for comfortable handling, the SLS system guarantees holding force, and the SAS-L system promises optimum suspension.

Makalu Trail series (AS) Antishock Poles features ErgoSoft rubber grips for great durability and comfort. The Auto comfort Strap adjustment comes from a cam inside that locks the strap length with downward pressure of the hand. It is comfy and innovative adjustment system which is quick and easy. The trail is a great middle market hiking pole for those looking at getting into hiking and walking or for those wanting to upgrade from a basic non anti-shock model.

The anti-shock system via the LEKI triple spring system. Pushing down on the upper section sets the Anti-shock. Three different spring settings can be set for different terrain. Holding force on these poles is 140kg/315 lbs in tests - unmatched by any other manufacturer on the market.

These heat treated 7075 Aluminum shafts with SAS and Carbide Flextips for security on rock and ice are great value. Carbide Flextips are added security on rock and ice. Also features Ultra Sonic finish, interchangeable Basket System, Ergosoft rubber grips, and each pole weighs approx 290 grams.

Special Features:

Ultra Sonic Finish/ Carbide Flex Tip / Interchangeable basket system / Classic locking system / Triple Spring Anti-shock System

Leki Technology used in various models:

Ergonomic Grips:


  • 15˚ Positive Angle – Located just below the Grip this bend in the upper shaft section places your wrist in a neutral and relaxed position
  • Ergometric - Shape and design incorporates the Positive Angle INTO the grip. The main benefit is the smaller packing size of the pole by up to 4"
  • Straight – The Grip is not positioned in a Positive Angle
  • Cane style – Shaped like a cane but easier on the wrist

Anti-Shock Systems:
Designated models feature Spring loaded Anti-Shock mechanism which absorbs shock from pole plants greatly relieving stress to arm, wrist and hand joints:

  • Super Lock System (SLS) is an Expander/screw locking system that was proven to be the strongest by TUV, an independent testing lab
  • LEKI SLS has 140kg holding force and 360˚ reverse turn security
  • TRIPLE SPRING ANTISHOCK – Pushing down on the upper section sets the Antishock. Three different spring settings can be set for different terrain:
  • SOFT ANTISHOCK SYSTEM (SAS) – A combination of steel spring and Elastomer provides a smooth and precise Antishock action which can be left on or turned off
  • SOFT ANTISHOCK SYSTEM - LITE (SAS-L) - The SAS-L is an innovation to the the standard SAS and is integrated into the lower shaft of the pole, reducing the packaging size by 50mm over the previous model.


  • Automatic Comfort Strap - the adjustment comes from a cam inside that locks the strap length with downward pressure of the hand
  • P2 Strap- has a one-touch strap adjustment with an external locking tab


There are different Grips on models in each series of poles. MaterialShape/Position on the shaft and Positive Angle are a few distinguishing features. 

  • COR-TEC (cork)
  • Thermo Foam
  • ErgoSOFT Rubber
  • Plastic

Interchangeable Baskets
Allows for quick and easy change of baskets to meet any terrain condition. Keeps the poles from slipping into mud and soft soil (practice environmental stewardship by using your Baskets!). Several basket designs available.

Flex Tips
The Carbide Flex Tip provides maximum hold and stability on hard surfaces.

Anodized middle and lower sections.


LEKI, the world's leading manufacturer of ski, hiking and trekking poles, had its start in Kircheim, Germany as a hobby of its founder, Karl Lenhart, an airframe mechanic and avid skier. Lenhart believed aluminum would make a superior ski pole compared to the heavy steel models available in the late 1940's. After successfully creating light- weight poles for his friends, in 1954, the hobby became a full time business.

LEKI originated the use of nylon webbing for straps and created plastic molded grips and baskets in place of metal and leather. Additionally, Lenhart developed an aluminum tempering process that produces pole shafts with incomparable strength, durability, and reliability.

In 1984, Klaus Lenhart, Karl's son, assumed leadership and shortly thereafter developed the first dual- component grip. He is also responsible for improving adjustable pole-locking technology and grip innovations such as the Trigger "Click-In" system and COR-TEC, a material made of real cork and latex.

As the ski market continued to flourish, LEKI began manufacturing hiking poles primarily for European mountain guides. The concept of using two poles as a means of relieving stress on knee joints and the lower back appealed to climbers who also saw benefits in performance and safety. LEKI poles eventually caught on with the general hiking and trekking population that recognized and appreciated the preventive health benefits as well as the climbing support and stabilizing effects. In 1990, LEKI USA was incorporated.

The North American market has embraced the company's line of alpine, Nordic, back country, mountaineering, Nordic walking, and trekking poles. Like their European counterparts who have been loyal to LEKI for nearly five decades, North American outdoor enthusiasts know and appreciate LEKI quality and value.
