Leki poles have been around for quite some time, maybe more than you would suggest. The company was established in 1948 and nowadays is known for more than just Leki ski poles. You can find Leki trekking poles, Leki hiking poles, walking sticks, and also Leki gloves in the stores.
What Karl Lenhart started driven by the pure need and striving for better ski poles, has turned into an international leader for poles and glove equipment. From the first commercially sold ski poles under the brand name Leki in 1970 to this day, the company has remained true to the idea for constant development and improvement. New systems, new revolutionized poles, gloves and equipment comes out of Leki’s workshops almost every year setting standards for safety and quality.
