A small, versatile and sporty travel cane.

The LEKI Super Micro walking cane is a lighter, more compact version of the Wanderfreund walking cane from LEKI. This super compact and lightweight single walking cane is packed with all of the great features of our Wanderfreund less the Antishock system, and compacts nicely for travel, storing in your satchel, rucksack or purse.

The Leki Super Micro cane is not your average cane, it is a sporty model traditionally used for Alpine hiking; now repurposed as an attractive alternative to boring institutional walking canes.

This updated model includes the Super Lock System, which means stronger pole joints, no slippage, and simple adjustment. For storage, it compacts down to a mere 18 inches and extends to 35 inches. The AergoMED grip is ergonomically designed to reduce hand fatigue and stress and to give the greatest control. Whether you prefer to grip it with palm on top, side, or bottom, the control is remarkable.

  • AERGOMED Grip - LEKI's latest innovation, AERGON (air + Ergonomics) technology produces this trendsetting grip - the lightest in LEKI history.
    • Revolutionary, edgeless outer shape can be either palmed or grasped at the neck, for a variety of gripping options.
    • Rubberized and dimpled top provides a comfortable, textured grip.
    • Large support area on top for a secure hold.
    • Extremely lightweight shell cavity construction.
    • Integrated wrist strap.
  • Super Lock System (SLS) - The Super Lock System (SLS) provides optimum lock with less tightening torque, 3-6 turns. The holding force is more than 60 times more secure than other locking systems when properly adjusted.
    • Easy to use.
    • Requires the lowest amount of torque (hand strength) to securely lock pole adjustment.
    • Quick locking mechanism requires just 3-6 twists.
    • Highest holding force in TÜV testing > 140 kg per pole.
    • High locking force with 360° "back turn security".
  • Interchangeable Basket System - Allows quick and easy attachment and removal of LEKI® Performance or Snowflake Baskets. No basket included, but available as an accessory.
  • Universal Carbide Flextip - The flexible tip can bend up to 30° without damaging the pole shafts. The use of Carbide provides optimal grip on rock and ice surfaces.  Removable and replaceable rubber tip for indoor and urban use.

LEKI USA is always written in capital letters because it is an acronym - LEKI is pronounced, "Lake-ee". LE are the first two letters of the owner's last name, Klaus Lenhart, and KI is from the location of the company, Kirchheim/Teck, Germany.

THE LEGEND OF LEKI and their walking canes, poles and sticks - LEKI, the world's leading manufacturer of ski, hiking and trekking poles, had its start in Kircheim, Germany as a hobby of its founder, Karl Lenhart, an airframe mechanic and avid skier. Lenhart believed aluminum would make a superior ski pole compared to the heavy steel models available in the late 1940's. After successfully creating light-weight poles for his friends, in 1954, the hobby became a full time business.

LEKI originated the use of nylon webbing for straps and created plastic molded grips and baskets in place of metal and leather. Additionally, Lenhart developed an aluminum tempering process that produces pole shafts with incomparable strength, durability, and reliability.

In 1984, Klaus Lenhart, Karl's son, assumed leadership and shortly thereafter developed the first dual-component grip. He is also responsible for improving adjustable pole-locking technology and grip innovations such as the Trigger "Click-In" system and COR-TEC, a material made of real cork and latex.

As the ski market continued to flourish, LEKI began manufacturing hiking poles primarily for European mountain guides. The concept of using two poles as a means of relieving stress on knee joints and the lower back appealed to climbers who also saw benefits in performance and safety. LEKI poles eventually caught on with the general hiking and trekking population that recognized and appreciated the preventive health benefits as well as the climbing support and stabilizing effects. In 1990, LEKI USA was incorporated.

The North American market has embraced the company's line of alpine, Nordic, back country, mountaineering, Nordic walking, and trekking poles. Like their European counterparts who have been loyal to LEKI for nearly five decades, North American outdoor enthusiasts know and appreciate LEKI quality and value.
