The Mountaineering collection from LEKI offers a wide range of premium poles designed specifically for high alpine adventures. The poles in this collection have the innovative Aergon Air grip system. The Aergon Air grips are hollow, saving precious weight but providing exceptional comfort and control. The rubberized top section of the grip makes it easy to palm the top of the poles when descending. The extended foam grip found on our Mountaineering poles provides additional locations to hold the pole when encountering rugged and steep terrain. LEKI Mountaineering poles are built to withstand the harshest conditions while providing excellent grip, comfort, and durability. These 4-season poles can be used in snowy conditions in the winter and spring and transition for use when hiking and backpacking once the snow melts.
