LEKI Wanderfreund Antishock Travel Cane

Delivering light weight, packable and very
sturdy performance, the LEKI Wanderfreund Antishock Travel Cane is great for day to
day use and travel. We will take a look at all the features and what makes this cane
so great. This is a true traditional telescoping pole
so you have got three shaft sections here. And, again, that is really strong, but also
lightweight aluminum construction. Inside the shaft sections you have LEKI’s Super
Lock System. So that delivers really, really sturdy internal locks there. And the usable
length of this pole is 24 and a half inches up to 47 and a half inches or up to 120 centimeters.
So you have a lot of adjustability here. And the way to adjust it is really simple with
this super locks. You just twist it open to loosen it up, adjust it to your preferred
height and then twist it closed. And with this pole the usable length is the
entire shaft sections of the trekking pole. So you can use this pole at any length and
there are no markings on these poles, because of that. So you can adjust it to as short
or as tall as you like. And those Super Lock Systems are going to be really reliable. Between the middle and lower sections of the
pole is where you have LEKI’s soft, anti-shock. So this is just going to take away the vibration
that would come though the pole on improved surfaces, if you are walking for long days.
It is definitely going to take the strain off of your wrists and elbows and shoulders
so you have a really great feature there. Going up to the top on the grip you have LEKI’s
Aergomed grip. And you can use this in a couple of different ways. You can use it as a standard
cane. So you can use the top of it. You can palm the top of the pole if you like, or you
can also use the grip a little bit lower down. So you can use it more like a traditional
trekking pole if you like. There is a nice soft strap there, safety strap. And that can
take he pressure off of your wrists as you are walking with this cane. Going down to the tip you have got LEKI’s
carbide flex tip and it does come standard with a rubber tip protector on there. So that
is just press fit. You can take that off. If you are on improved surfaces it is really
great to use this rubber tip, but if you are on the trail or if you are traveling and you
need that carbide flex tip to bite into the surface that you are walking on this is the
carbide flex tip that is on all of LEKI’s other trekking poles. So really good performance
there. And this whole tip itself is a replaceable piece. So in the unlikely even that you get
the pole caught between rocks or in a position that might break the trekking pole, this tip
is meant to break first. Just as well after years of use if you need to replace that tip,
you can buy them separately and it is replaceable. All in all the LEKI Wanderfreund Antishock
Travel Cane is easy to use, fully featured. It is lightweight. It is a telescoping pole
so it breaks down to be pretty small for travel and it is definitely reliable for every day
use. It is the LEKI Wanderfreund Antishock Travel

  1. Can't praise this product high enough. I have used one of these for over 10 years now due to Multiple Sclerosis and have only had to replace the rubber tip once The anti shock system is just beginning to give a little after 10 years of constant use so will definitely be buying another Leki within the next year.
