LEKI’s AERGON Diva Awarded Women’s Adventure Editor's Choice

Women's Adventure Magazine tested over 1,000 products from leading sport and outdoor companies before selecting the LEKI AERGON Diva Trekking Poles as one of the 90 best products to be featured in the April 2009 issue.

Buffalo, NY - LEKI, the world's leading manufacturer of Skiing, Trekking and Nordic Walking poles, has been awarded the Women's Adventure Magazine Editor's Choice Award for their AERGON Diva Trekking Pole. Women's Adventure Magazine tested over 1,000 products from leading sport and outdoor companies and whittled down the list to just over 90 of the best products which were featured in their April 2009 issue. The LEKI AERGON Diva is part of the Hiking and Backpacking section and is the only trekking pole featured in the entire issue.

“It's an honor to have one of our women's specific trekking poles selected as the best by the editors of Women's Adventure Magazine,” says Greg Wozer, Vice President of LEKI USA. “Women's Adventure is an authentic outdoor publication and it's nice to be recognized by those in the industry who we know are active users of our products.”

LEKI was the first pole company to engineer a women's specific grip, which is 15 percent smaller overall (width and girth) than their standard grip. Additionally, the shaft sections on the women's pole series are smaller in diameter (16/14/12mm vs. 18/16/14mm) and lighter in weight than their standard pole series, while still maintaining shaft stability because overall lengths are shorter. This shorter compacted length fits better in women's specific backpacks, which are also shorter. Part of the Wildflower line of women's trekking poles, the AERGON Diva combines lightweight aluminum, an anti-shock system, and LEKI's new AERGON (air + ergonomics) grip technology featuring the revolutionary edgeless outer shape that can either be palmed or held traditionally.
