LEKI <br /> Cross Trail poles <br /> Summer 2020

LEKI is launching its new range of poles for the speed hiker.

Heralding a new category – “Cross Trail” – the range caters for a lifestyle rather than an activity.  LEKI undertook one-and-a-half years of research including extensive one-to-one interviews with the end consumer.  It ascertained that this new customer likes to wear fast and light clothing and has a limited time to go into the mountains; perhaps 1–1.5 hours.  They want to hike at a pace at which they feel comfortable; this is about enjoyment, dynamism and speed.

LEKI’s Cross Trail range comprises 4 models all of which are folding.  Two models – MTC 12 Mario and MCT 12 Vario Women – use 100% carbon; the other two – MCT Vario and MCT Vario Women – use aluminium.  The poles are slim and lightweight, and all feature the new Cross Shark Grip which offers speed and comfort.
