You’ll be trekking to the top of Mt Kosciuszko in no time with a Leki Corklite Antishock Trekking Pole in each hand. The handle is a mixture of cork and latex, so you get the comfort of a natural fibre but with a longer lifespan.
The top of the handle is oval shape so you can comfortably like a cane. There are small vents on the handle so your hands won’t be slipping around in the middle of a hike, and the shape feels comfortable in your hand. To adjust for your wrist you just pull on the soft woven strap until it’s the right length.
There are 2 lock mechanisms on the handle that are extremely easy to use, you just flick it out, adjust it accordingly, and then lock it into place. The Antishock system in place means that on a vigorous expedition your body won’t absorb the impact which means no sore joints the next day. This is a good starter set for hikers or backpackers as the Corklite is high quality, and has some excellent features.
Picked up a set to replace my worn out e-bay specials. What a difference. Very comfortable handles and wrist straps. Very light weight with a sturdy feel. The dampening worked well and made rough paths a bit more comfortable. Definitely worth paying a bit extra.
Dont fold down as small as other poles available but that wasn't an issue for me.
Note that they don't come with the rubber stopper ends which you need to get separately.
Hi. I have seen the corklite on other websites with a packing size of around 67cm. The item description here on Snowys says 100cm, is that correct? I assume they are slightly different models? Thanks, Michael.
Funny you have seen this today Michael, I noticed this earlier today as I was adding new poles to our online range. You're right, the 100cm measurement is incorrect, and should (and now is) 67 cm when packed.
I apologise for the confustion here, deciphering walking poles can be bewidlering enough without errors in the data.
