Gear Review – Leki Corklite Aergon Speedlock trekking poles

Click to view larger Image

Today I want to take a look at the Leki Corklite Aergon Speedlock trekking poles. So far these poles have just shy of 20 miles put on them and they have been fantastic. The hand grips are nice and comfy and allow you to change positions on the grips for going up or down. The locks are great for quick changes for terrain changes. One thing to note however is you have to keep a watch on the locks because they can become loose over time. There is a tightening screw on the back side of the locks but be careful not to over tighten them.

Comfy Grips

Speed locks closed and open


They do not have shocks in them so they have a slight wiggle when you use them but not enough to cause problems nor throw off your stride.  The Leki Corklite Aergon Speedlock trekking poles weigh in at 16.6 oz for the pair. The cost ranges from $80 to $120 on line and can be found at many outdoor retailers.
