Leki's Micro Vario system poles offer outstanding stability in a very compact package and are the strongest poles available in the folding pole category. The Micro Vario Ti Cortec is a 3-section, 7075 Series heat-treated Aluminum folding pole with a top section that adjusts from 110-130cm with the smooth Super Lock system. The folded length of the poles is 38cm, small enough to easily fit into a small backpack or luggage. A secure push button release mechanism allows for fast and simple assembly and collapse. A spring in the lower shaft guarantees maximum tension and automatic rope length compensation. Filigrane high performance tensioning rope is reinforced with sturdy PE coating for lifelong protection of the fibers.
