Guide Review
For Trail and Travel
The Leki Super Makalu Cor-Tec trekking poles are great for trail walking. First, they come in pairs so you can use them as fitness walking poles wherever you walk - buy the optional rubber walking tip for pavement. The grips are ergonomic so you won't be shocking your wrists with each step. They are telescoping so you can travel with them in luggage or in your pack, and adjust them for different users. They have springs with adjustable strength to absorb the shocks of each step, or you can lock them in to lean on them on hills.
