The best of Leki's technology goes into making the Makalu Lite (formerly the Leki Albula Lite walking pole) the easiest, most comfortable telescopic pole to use on flat to hilly terrain: quick and easy SpeedLock 2 length adjustment; the edgeless Aergon Thermo grip and a supple, lightweight strap for comfortable wrist support even without gloves. Aircraft-grade aluminium sections in smaller diameters than the Superstrong range make Ultralite poles strong and durable at low weight: ideal for average to lighter-built users under 6' in height. Lightweight performance with the features you need and no more, the Makalu Lite is the perfect choice for most walking adventures.FeaturesThe lightest aluminium three-part Leki Ultralite trekking pole for straightforward efficiency on easy to moderate terrainMaterial: HTS 6.5 aluminiumShaft diameter: 16/14/12 mmGrip: Aergon ThermoLength adjustment: SpeedLock 2 LeverStrap: Leki Skin StrapTip: Carbide Flex Tip Short with interchangeable basket systemCollapsed length: 67 cmUseable length: 100 - 135 cm (suitable for users up to 6'/180cm in height)Weight: 470 grams per pairLeki's Ultralite range of telescopic poles are ideal for users between 5'3"/160cm and 180cm in height and up to 75kg in weight for lightweight trekking use: they provide plenty of strength at minimal weight through the use of slimmer tubing than Superstrong poles.

Replacement plastic expander for classic twist lock Leki Poles. These are very easy to tell apart from newer expanders as there is no split down the side and it is bright orange. They wear out very slowly, but if you feel that your pole is no longer locking as securely as it used to, it might be time to get some new ones.
