Santa came early this year and dropped a box of brand new Leki products. This is my 6th season with Leki and I have to say that from one year to the other, I keep getting more and more impressed by the quality of the products.

This year, aside from outstanding quality, Leki has developed a new Freeride Collection with amazing graphics and new features.

I had the opportunity to ski the Rodeo Vario Speedlock for a month touring and heliskiing everyday at the end of the season in Iceland and Norway and I was really impress by the Speedlock system. This system does not lose tension and the pole stays in position. We have all experienced old locking system with a twist – not reliable. This is not an issue anymore. It is strong and easy to use.

I would also recommend checking out other models such as the Project 19 and Blast for more classical poles but still featuring the Trigger system.
