LEKI's Cressida poles have a shorter grip for smaller sized hands and a shorter adjustable range of 100-120cm aimed at women or generally smaller adults. The FX Carbon version here has a very short packed size of 40cm.
The Cressida FX Carbon will support you on all mountain hikes. This folding pole is equipped with the new Aergon Air Compact which is 12 % shorter and, as such, is perfect for smaller hands. This latest generation of grip, which is specially adapted for trekking, has been redesigned for comfort and control and has been improved in numerous ways. The special hollow technology combines lightweight construction with large, supportive surfaces to meet all the ergonomic requirements of your hand. The Aergon Air´s rubberized grip head provides maximum stability and control when going downhill. The inclined angle supports your wrist for optimal guidance and placement of the pole and contributes to safety on the mountain. Off to the next adventure with the Cressida FX Carbon!
Leki's Cressida FX Carbon Trekking Poles are marketed as 'womens specific' but they are simply for smaller adults with smaller hands. They feature the Aergon Air grip which is a very accomplished handle finished in LEKI's Cork-like surface for a warm and comfortable feel, we love the rubber top which is very 'positive' for steep descents.
The Cressida are a combination folding and Lever Locked pole meaning they have a very short packed size of 40cm. They are also made from slightly smaller diameter tubing as they are designed for smaller adults and this keeps the overall weight down.
A great product from a company that stands for Reliability and Durability.
