Customer and magazine reviews of the Carbonlite Trekking poles.
The Leki Makalu Carbonlite weighs in at just 180 grams per pole, making them one of the lightest trekking poles on the market and this is immediately obvious when using the poles.

LEKI TRAIL WALKING POLE REVIEW (1) 14 June 2009
Leki Trail Walking Poles Reviewed by TRAIL Magazine.
Even the most basic design of pole will take its share of the load and improve walking performance. If it’s well-made, strong, reasonably light, ultra-reliable and available for a very reasonable £40 per pair like the Leki Trail, then it’s going to take some beating. The grip is slim, soft and comfy in the hand, and the straps, whilst basic, are broad enough to spread the load comfortably. But it’s out on the trail that these poles really come into their own. There are lighter models out there, but few that will get close to this one for strength and reliability; and the Leki Super Lock twistlock mechanism is absolutely superb, needing very little effort to ensure a totally reliable lock. Simple, but pure quality and excellent value for money.
CUSTOMER REVIEW: LEKI WALKING POLE BAG 28 September
I recently purchased a Leki Walking & Trekking Pole Bag, online from Head to the Hills, the transaction was swift and easy as I could use Paypal to pay, the pole bag is the Bees Knees having ample length to accommodate my poles ( Leki Makalu Summit ) with a snap buckle closure at the open end, there is a 1.5 inch web sling that runs the whole length of the bag with lots of adjustment.
The Pole Bag seems to be constructed of the same type of nylon material that my Caving Oversuit is, so should be strong with good resistance to abrasion.
My style of walking – scrambling means I don’t use my poles all the time I’m on the Hill, so I have to stow my poles in my rucksack if I can’t be bothered to carry them, which is a pain, now I can carry them over my shoulder in my bag!
Thanks kind regards, Allen Vowles. Head to the Hills Customer
LEKI MICRO STICK TREKKING POLE REVIEW 13 November
Leki have been in the trekking pole business longer than anyone else on the market and it’s always interesting to me to see their take on emerging trends in equipment design. The use of poles has been widely embraced by a number of active outdoor sports people including ultra-distance mountain runners, mountaineers and para-gliders.
