BUFFALO, NY â€“ Leading pole manufacturer LEKI USA announced today that their new Khumbu Aergon trekking pole has received the 2010 Editors’ Choice Award from Camping Life magazine. The Khumbu Aergon features LEKI’s new SpeedLock system, considered to be the strongest external pole locking system in the world.
â€œThe new LEKI Khumbu Aergon features the company’s revolutionary SpeedLock external locking systemâ€¦which is next to impossible to break loose. The pole also features the new Aergon Soft Grip, a soft natural rubber with rounded edges for superb all-day comfort. Until you’ve used these trekking poles when hiking you’ll never know just how much support they really offer, and how much your hips, knees and ankles will thank you later. And a pair of them is like having four legs for increased stability on rough, rocky terrain. Best of all, they’re offered at a very reasonable MSRP of $99 each.â€ â€“ excerpt from Camping Life 2010 Editors’ Choice Award.
The editors of Camping Life reviewed hundreds of products this year and whittled the list down to the top ten camping products to receive this prestigious award. The Camping Life 2010 Editors’ Choice Awards featuring the LEKI Khumbu Aergon trekking pole is showcased in the May 2010 issue.
One of five LEKI poles to showcase the next generation SpeedLock system for 2010, the Khumbu Aergon is the latest from the company’s Mountain Trek category of high-performance trekking poles. SpeedLock is considered the strongest external pole locking system in the world since the locking force is concentrated directly on the lower shaft as opposed to coming from a secondary compression source. The pole also features the new Aergon Soft Grip, a soft natural rubber using the latest Aergon (Air + Ergonomics) grip design that is made specifically for trekking with its completely rounded lightweight head.
