“What makes them most unique is the poles’ three-part shaft…”
Leki, a company that designs trekking poles in cooperation with athletes and certified mountain guides, has designed a break-apart pair of poles. T.C. Worley over at Gear Junkie got his hands on an advanced pair and wrote this review after having tested them in Patagonia, Chile.
What I find attractive is the compact size for ease in carrying and traveling and the Speedlock Locking System. At $150 a pair these Micro poles’ innovative technology will probably catch the eyes of advanced trekkers as well as a few weekend hikers.
