Leki Nordic Walking poles

There are currently eighteen different Nordic Walking poles in the Leki range. We have listed them in order of RRP (Recommended Retail Price) here. We have also highlighted the key features of each pole and given a short review.

If you are thinking of purchasing poles, try clicking on the images of the poles. Where possible, they will take you to Amazon, where they can be purchased.

You might be asking “Why do they need eighteen different poles?” Well, they are all slightly different and have features and a price to suit everyone. If you feel that it’s all a bit confusing, we have written an article on how to choose Nordic Walking poles. This should shed some light on the differences and help you choose the best poles for you.
