Runners are notoriously prone to overuse injuries, always relying on the same muscles to locomote. What if it were possible to instantly engage more muscle groups, increase balance, and decrease fatigue? Leki has pursued this very thought experiment with the Ultratrail FX One. Shark Frame straps wrap your hands securely, increasing the accuracy and power of your pole plants while eliminating "remember to hold onto poles" from your race day checklist. Three full-carbon sections fold down to a handy length of around 40 centimeters (depending on length) at the push of a button, making them the perfect accessory for your carry-on bag (disclaimer: airport security may not endorse this packing method). An extended cork grip makes choking up easy the next time you find yourself staring up the mean side of your local testpiece, while trail running baskets and carbide tips won't drag you down along the way. Blending intuitiveness, practicality, and durability, the Leki Ultratrail FX One is a helpful companion for your favorite skyrunning endeavors.

  • Rugged 16mm diameter tapers to 14mm, preparing these poles to stand up to everything from long training miles to charging moose.
  • Shark Frame hand straps provide an ergonomic attachment system, making the Ultralight FX One feel like an integrated extension of the human mind (or at least your hand).
  • Fixed lengths are available between 105-135cm so you can dial the perfect boost for your height and running style.
  • Foldable construction reminiscent of tent poles packs down easily.
  • Cork extended grips are comfortable on varied terrain styles.

Question from Laura W
Hello! I’m interested in purchasing Leki poles, for running. I’m not sure what the differences are between the lightweight poles they make for ultrarunners! Can you help?

I’ve never run with poles before. More immediately, I am interested in using them to circumnavigate Mt Hood (Oregon). I would also like to use them for a hilly 100M. I think I would be using them in hilly places and in sand and rocks (talus, shale). And would need them to fold up small and fit on a running hydration vest/pack. I prefer to run fast and light in the mountains, so weight is a factor.

Thank you for your help and expertise!
Answer from Brett S
Thanks for reaching out, Laura. The main difference between the Leki poles mostly comes down to weight (though there are some other minor differences). For avid folks such as yourself, the Ultratrail FX One Superlite would be the most suitable choice. It is the lightest option and would be the most efficient (require less energy). The other poles are a little heavier, however, you save a bit of money which is never a bad thing. For a complete comparison between the poles, please click here.
