Komperdell Trekking Poles
AS Wimbledon fortnight approaches, it's worth noting that the trekking world owes a nod of thanks to the Murrays and Haleps et al who'll soon be gracing the courts of SW19.
LEKI’S Tour Carbon 3 pole (£139.95 a pair) has been built for big mountain powder days: it’s light, precise and strong.
Offering enormous propulsion power it weighs in at an ultralight 257g yet is very strong thanks to its construction using two different materials. Constructed from pure light and stiff carbon on the upper segment for perfect turns with minimum weight, its lower half uses a sturdy, high-strength aluminium.
Thanks to LEKI’s innovative external adjustment Speed Lock 2 system (TUV-Sud Certified) the Tour Carbon 3 is easily and quickly adjustable from 110cm to 150cm even whilst wearing gloves. Speed Lock 2 is also 30% smaller, 25% lighter and delivers a 20% higher holding force than traditional poles.
Finally, the Aergon Tour Thermo Long grip with grip extension offers a comfortable fit and a reinforced neoprene strap with fleece lining has been designed to give maximum comfort.
