If it’s a twistlock trekking pole you want, it’s the Leki Trail trekking pole you need. One of very few SuperLock poles still in production, the new 2020 model of the Trail is furnished with Leki’s Round Top Comfort smooth CorTec grip, giving you the option of putting your hand on top rather than round the handle. These handles add a layer of cork to give extra comfort when compared to the previous all-rubber versions. SuperLock is the strongest of Leki’s locking mechanisms when correctly adjusted, with a massive holding force of over 150kg.
Now part of Leki’s vintage line, the Trail pole is a good choice for walkers starting out with poles, or for those who prefer the sleeker aesthetic of a twistlock pole over those with lever mechanisms. The Trail also happens to be one of the shortest-packing of Leki’s standard 3-part telescopic pole range at 65cm. Classic design with upgraded handles and a new colour scheme for 2020, the Leki Trail is the go-to option for twistlock performance.
