LEKI products are characterized by the highest level of quality and durability. To ensure this longevity, it is important that you take proper care of your poles and gloves. Here you will find tips for care and cleaning that can significantly extend the life of your LEKI products.

How do I keep my telescoping poles in good condition?

If you inspect them every now and then, LEKI Telescoping Poles will remain a reliable part of your gear for many years. If you need to wipe them off, you should only do so with a dry cloth. Please do not use any lubricants, oils or fats. Wear and tear parts should be replaced every so often depending on their condition.

After a tour, we recommend pulling the pole apart into separate segments and letting them air dry. This prevents oxidation forming on the inside of the shafts. 
Once dry, the poles can be assembled and stored in a dry and cool location. 


How do I keep my folding poles in good condition?

If you follow our care instructions, your LEKI Folding Poles will remain a reliable part of your gear for many years. Should the poles ever get moist or wet, extend the folding poles after use and set them (in the case of Vario folding poles) at the maximum length. Dry the entire pole with a dry cloth. The folding pole should be folded and stored in a dry environment. It is imperative that you prevent dirt, dust and other grime from getting inside the individual segments; this can impair their function as you unfold, fold, and use the poles, and damages their segments.  


Which parts can be exchanged?

 All accessories and worn parts can be replaced with LEKI products (grips, straps, baskets, tips). However, we recommend only replacing the baskets with integrated threading yourself. In the case of glued tips or grips, please contact your trusted LEKI specialist dealer.
