About LEKI

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 lightweight 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 shaft with incomparable strength, durability, and reliability.

In 1984, Klaus Lenhart, Karl’s son, assumed leadership and shortly there after 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 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.

Yes, this is a price for a PAIR of Poles NOT one pole! The description should be updated to make that clear.

Now to the review:

If you are interested or new to Nordic walking it's really worth it to invest in some good poles. Leki has been in the business for years starting out in Ski poles.
I started just walking with some cheap trekking poles I purchased at a big box club store and walked with them for several months using only one as a "hiking stick" and to ward off any stray dogs I may come across in my walk. I soon learned that trekking poles (sometimes called trekking/walking poles) are NOT real Nordic walking poles. They have a larger grip and usually just a wrist strap. When you get the Leki's you will see the difference. Leki's Nordic Walking Poles have a smaller streamlined grip with a full wrist harness that straps on. I am sure there are other differences but these are the obvious ones. There are other brands that may be slightly less expensive but since I was new to this I really needed solid adjustable poles. If you are new to this I recommend you opt for good adjustable poles as well. As you get more proficient in your technique, you may find you want to make some slight length adjustment. This is far cheaper than buying new fixed length poles IMO.

I began to research this new fitness routine I discovered that Nordic walking has become a big fitness activity in Europe and is catching on here. Jogging or running wasn't for me anymore and quite frankly my 55 year old joints won't take the pounding. Nordic Walking was an activity that I can do and get an excellent workout. Of course I average 4 + miles each walk 5 - 6 times a week. For those of you like me over 55 with older joints consider Nordic walking.

Easy way to increase the benefits of walking. Felt the difference first time out with these LEKI Nordic Walking Poles. I have always enjoyed walking but this adds a tremendous amount of enjoyment.

I really wish I had discovered this way of walking/exercising years ago. Have had these for several weeks. Life changing. Great upper body workout now. Bad knees and these really help with going up inclines in the road. I am recommending them to my friends who walk who are my age (50-something) who suffer from osteoarthritis and for those who just like to walk and would be interested in getting the upper body working at the same time. Highly recommend! Fast shipping. Am getting these for my best friend for her birthday...my mom next.

I had gotten these poles several months ago. I was a bit prejudiced because the color and handle were different from the "Instructor" poles currently shown on Leki's website. However, I happen to have Bernd Zimmerman's DVD "Nordic Walking: The Ultimate Fitness Experience". In it Gottfried Kurmer. a top instructor, is teaching a young lady who is using exactly these poles. They simply are an older design. saving you $30.

What do I think of them? I walk 3 miles a day with them. I am now a member of the American Nordic Walking Association and I am taking their 8 hour class this August in Central Park and I am nuts about Nordic Walking--- so I guess these are pretty good poles!

These poles were exactly what I was looking for. They are lightweight and the interlock system works perfectly. Because of one bad knee, I will do most of my marathon training using my new poles - and then do the event/s without the poles.

I picked these becasue they appeared to have a good rating, they adjust and were not too expensive. I getting old (about to be 62), had to quit running and walking is getting harder due to pain in ... well just about the whole body. Worst part is the lower back and hips. The poles help, I don't hurt as much after walking (mostly on hard surfaces) and as a bonus I get a bit of an upper body work out.
