Bought these to replace my old Leki Makalu, which was a model with a cork handle.
The three areas in which I was looking for improvement were:
1) Lighter weight, while still remaining very strong.
2) Increased thermal isolation for the handle (useful in winter)
3) Better grip: more comfortable in the hand, especially when holding just the tip of the handle in the palm of my hand (useful on descent), and the ability to still have a good grip without changing the length of the pole itself.
The engineers at Leki delivered successfully on on all of the above with these new Leki Carbonlite XL ! They even included a camera attachment for the pole.
The only drawback:there is no model with spring-like shock absorption. For winter however, this is definitely not necessary.
Conclusion: If you want THE VERY BEST lightweight poles, you have found them. No need to look further.
The leki LEKI Carbonlite XL Trekking Poles are very light ,I felt very good when hiking.But I met a problem,one pole was broken off when I went downhill.I sent a mail to backcountry.com,I haven't received a reply yet until now.I don't know what to do next.
There is a wart,when it's cold ,the poles is difficult to adjust.
