In 1948 the Lenhart family was already working with materials such as plastic and metal, and in 1970 the first Leki ski poles were manufactured. The revolutionary development of a functioning system for adjustable length, lead to the first adjustable ski poles and hiking poles in 1974. Today, Leki is a venture with a worldwide reputation in the field of hiking poles, Nordic Walking poles and ski poles. This was made possible with sustained development in technology and innovation. Intense commitment, the exchange of experiences with athletes and opinion leaders and the cooperation with dealers and suppliers have also contributed to Leki’s fame and glory.
