These $80 Leki aluminum trekking poles have composite rubber handles. While there is still some debate about damage to trail tread, trekking poles have become very common equipment for the preservation of knees while hiking steep grades. This rental item will allow members a chance to try before deciding to buy this type of equipment.
These three-section poles are adjustable within 69-135 cm (27-53 inches) using both speedlock upper and twist lock lower mechanisms. The latter is activated by holding the lock and turning the tip end counter-clockwise to loosen, reverse to tighten. During use, remove the two plastic tip protectors and two clips connecting the poles together – and pocket in your pack to not lose. Just remember to return these items with the poles to Bldg 310 (or $5 for their replacement).
