Leki Vision Platinum Limited Edition Ski Poles

By: Kellie K. Speed

Leki is best known for their extensive range of innovative poles and their latest introduction, the Vision Platinum Limited Edition is no different.  The strap system, which connects to a Trigger Glove (not included) provides more security, comfort and control on the runs and in open terrain. 


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


As the ski market continued to flourish, Leki began manufacturing hiking poles primarily for European mountain guides. The concept of using two poles as 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. 


Today, the company manufacturers some of the highest end ski poles available for skiers, trekkers and Nordic walkers.  (They even offer adjustable Nordic walking poles).


Suggested retail is $129.95.  For more information on how to purchase Leki ski poles, visit their website at
