Leki AERGON Grip — A rounded grip atop a trekking pole that sits nice in the palm, especially for descents, was the big new from Leki. The AERGON grip incorporates an ovoid shape that can be palmed or held traditionally for several grip options. Its handle has a rubberized and dimpled top for texture, and the company’s proprietary strap-adjustment system for quick tweaks for fit. The AERGON will be come on 11 new trekking poles, including women-specific designs.
