LEKI Micro Vario Carbon Gear News


The Micro Vario Carbon, which is also available in a Ladies and a Strong version as well as with an integrated anti- shock feature, is always the first choice – no matter whether for trekking, multi-day cabin tours or fixed-rope routes.

The 240g folding pole made of 100% carbon is equipped with the quick and easy-to-use Speed Lock 2 external adjustment system, so it can be variably adjusted from 110 to 130cm. It features an impressive design and is TÜV Süd-certified. The technically sophisticated Easy Locking Device System (ELD) also ensures an even faster and simpler handling of the clever LEKI folding technology. The small silver lever on the ELD makes the technology visible and loosens the cable at the push of a button, allowing you to quickly assemble or disassemble the pole, even when wearing gloves.

The edgeless Aergon grip fits perfectly and saves even more weight thanks to its shell cavity construction. The grip extension provides variable gripping options and added comfort.

LEKI has designed a whole family of models around the Micro Vario Carbon. LEKI also offers a special Ladies version. In another version with the name addition AS (anti-shock system), the brand equips the trekking pole with an effective anti-shock effect, which increases comfort on hard surfaces and especially when going downhill. The family is completed by the Micro Vario Carbon Strong. In this extra sturdy version, LEKI uses shafts with a larger diameter (20/18/16mm). The Strong model can also be adjusted from 120 to 140cm.
