Leki says: 

The Makalu FX Carbon is your companion for all mountain adventures. It comes equipped with the new Aergon Air. This latest generation of grip is specially tuned for trekking and has been redesigned in terms of comfort and control and improved in countless ways. The special hollow core technology allows a combination of lightweight construction with large, supportive surfaces that meet all the ergonomic requirements of your hand. The fully rubberized grip head of the Aergon Air provides maximum grip 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. The grip extension provides an additional grip option when walking uphill. With the Lock Security Strap Skin 4.0 you can adjust the strap perfectly to your hand for optimal grip and pressure. Thanks to Speed Lock 2 plus, the all-carbon folding pole can be adjusted in seconds. The Makalu FX Carbon is your reliable partner on the mountain!

Our Verdict

Leki's Makalu Series Trekking Poles are the workhorse of the LEKI Trekking and Mountaineering ranges, this particular pair are a combination of folding poles and Lever Locking poles, this means thay can be packed down to a very short length - in this case 40cm - which is great for travelling.

We especially like the rubberised top of the handle because thats where the palm of your hand goes when you are descending, it feels really positive. The rest of the handle is good too with the foam grip extending down the shaft, especially useful for steep ascents.
