The Makalu Lite COR-TEC has the intelligent overall design of an excellent all-round pole. That's what makes it light, thin, stable but still extremely comfortable. This Makalu model is made from high-tensile strength Aluminum and features an Aergon COR-TEC grip and the innovative next generation SpeedLock Plus locking system for a hiking experience that's simply unparalleled.
Exclusive AERGON grip features a hollow core construction to save weight and create an edgeless, rounded grip for comfortable gripping at all angles especially for "palming" on steeper terrain
COR-TEC grip material is 80% natural ground cork for a more durable, biomechanical design
Built in 8 degree Positive Angle in LEKI grips keeps wrist in neutral position and provides more efficient pole plants
Air-textured "no bulk" security strap maintains design dimensions of grip; efficient wicking and fast drying; adjusts and secures strap adjustment without buckles
Next generation SpeedLock Plus lever locking mechanism offers quick, reliable length adjustments even with gloved hands and is more user friendly thanks to the raised "speed dial" to crank up the holding power when needed. No tools required!
