Appalachian Outfitters is now a proud carrier of a new LEKI product! LEKI has designed new trekking poles that have a rubber anti-shock system called Dynamic Suspension System (DSS). If you want to test your new LEKI designs at the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, we’ve already chosen some of the best trails for exploring.

Add Technology To Your Hiking Gear

The DSS design is LEKI’s approach to minimizing vibration and pole shock while you explore the outdoors. This shock-absorbing system is designed to keep you on the trail for longer. By reducing peak impacts by an estimated 40%, outdoors enthusiasts can protect their joints, muscles, and ligaments. LEKI has added the new DSS to its folding trekking poles, which are fully functional but compact, ultra-lite, and sophisticated.

Personalize Your Hiking Poles

These LEKI trekking poles come in a variety of designs for men and women. Women’s hiking poles have shorter straps, smaller grips, and adjusted dimensions that are better suited for a woman’s frame to increase comfort. Each DSS design is specified to the design of the pole, whether for men or women.

Reduce Your Gear Weight for the Trail

You can trust the super lightweight 100% carbon shafts to keep up with you in the wild. Expect the same outstanding LEKI performance but with added weight savings. LEKI boasts that these poles are 30% smaller, 25% lighter, and 20% higher holding force – all of which are bonuses on winding Northeastern Ohio trails! Take Comfort with You

The Aergon Thermo foam grips will feel comfortable no matter how many hills you climb. It features the LEKI Skin Strap for breathable, lightweight comfort and support without any additional weight. Now you can hike all day long without any discomfort distracting you from the great outdoors!
