    Leki Micro Vario Carbon AS Trekking Poles

    Can I attach the LEKI Fitness Walking Tips to use this product for Nordic Walk? There is no video to confirm this so I’d like to verify, especially this product has Anti-shock feature which I like. If this is possible, do I unscrew the disc and slide up and screw on the booties?
    Thanks for your help.

    Hi Jo,

    Thanks for the question! Here is what the Rep from LEKI relayed to me:

    “In theory you can just pop the fitness tip over the trekking pole tip, no need to remove anything. But it’s hard for us to recommend using a trekking pole (especially antishock) for nordic walking because they both have very different features for two very different uses and load carrying. Nordic Walking is similar to cross country skiing and features the slim shark grip for the best poling motion while the trekking pole grips feature a wider platform for varying gripping needs and heavier load carrying.”

    I hope this helps.

    Is the anti shock worth the additional weight on the LEKI Women’s Micro Vario Carbon AS Trekking Poles (Pair) in comparison to the LEKI Women’s Micro Vario Carbon Trekking Poles (Pair)?

    Hi Roe –

    Honestly, I think you can go either way. The anti-shock doesn’t add much weight (although I don’t have the exact weight figures in front of me), but I also think the benefit is marginal. Nice to have, but definitely not necessary in my opinion. If weight is a big concern, save a couple of bucks and grab the non-shock version.
