A combination of top quality aircraft-grade aluminum alloy with an edgeless Aergon CorTec grip and Leki's new SpeedLock+ locking makes the Khumbu efficient, hardwearing and versatile in use.
SpeedLock+ is a lighter, smaller evolution of the Leki SpeedLock (also known as SpeedLock 1), their original external locking mechanism. Adjustment is as quick and simple as flicking a lever and with a holding force of over 70kg it's ready to be relied upon throughout a long day trekking.
Leki's ergonomic Aergon grip shape makes all-day use comfortable too. You'll never find a corner, no matter where you hold it and the cork/rubber composite of CorTec is tactile but tough, with vent holes to keep your hand drier in summer. A hardwearing strap and carbide Flex Tip complete the ensemble, ensuring quality from end to end.
A sturdy pole for users of lighter build on all kinds of walking and trekking journeys, the Leki Khumbu Lite was made to make the long haul more comfortable.
