The Leki Haute Route pole is a tough 2 part touring/backcountry pole with an extended grip and easy to use length adjustment. The grip has a large support surface on the head and an edge free outer shape for comfort in the hand over the course of long tours, it also extends down the pole for better grip up hill. The big mountain baskets are designed to support in deep powder and are easy to replace without the need for tools.
The poles are constructed from a robust and durable aluminium HTS. They are height adjustable with the quick and easy speed lock 2 adjustment and also feature a strong nylon security strap.

Customer Reviews of Leki Haute Route
Experienced back country/ski mountaineer.
Just used them for a 3 day trip in the Alps, all touring, significant ascent and descent.
Great poles, light, adjustable (look for the little widget wheel to set tightness, otherwise they might slide).
Only drawback is the baskets are quite floppy which made binding adjustments on the go (while ascending) a little difficult.
Really great poles haven't had a chance to use them on the mountain yet but seem like great quality metal and easy collapsible mechanism.
