Leki is the world's leading manufacturer of ski, hiking and trekking poles. Leki’s founder, Karl Lenhart, was an aircraft mechanic and skier who believed aluminium would make better ski poles than the heavy steel models available in the 1940's. He was right, and Leki went on to pioneer the use of nylon webbing for straps and plastic moulded grips and baskets in place of metal and leather.
Leki developed an aluminium-tempering process that produces pole shafts with incomparable strength, durability, and reliability. The company was also first to see the benefits of using poles as a means of relieving stress on knee joints and the lower back, creating the first trekking poles. Leki engineer the best trekking poles for the UK market.
