Grab your Leki Makalu poles and hit the trail with confidence and ease. The Makalu FX Carbon adjusts infinitely from 110 to 130 cm using Leki’s durable Speed Lock 2 plus lever system. When not in use, each pole — which weighs in at just 254 grams — folds neatly into three sections to be tucked away easily.
Most notably, the Makalu FX Carbon features Leki’s newly redesigned Aergon Air pole grip which delivers unprecedented control and comfort. A unique hollow core shaves off weight, while large, supportive surfaces and built in positive angles deliver supreme ergonomic support even when descending the toughest terrain.
Makalu FX Carbon also features a trekking basket that prevents sinking into soft surfaces and also protects the lower shaft. Its ELD (External Locking Device) is a user-friendly locking mechanism for fast and easy assembly that releases pole tension with the push of a button.
