Buffalo, NY - LEKI announced today they have inked an athlete sponsorship agreement with two-time Olympic Medalist and three-time World Champion Lindsey Vonn to last through the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. The four-year contract guarantees Vonn will train and compete exclusively with LEKI poles and gate guards. LEKI is also an official supplier to the US Ski Team.

Vonn races with LEKI's revolutionary Trigger S grip system, the first “ski pole binding” system in the world. Trigger S is an integrated quick release security system where the connection between the grip and strap or the grip and glove is reduced to a ring shaped loop made from Dyneema®, a gel-spun polyester known for its strength and use in parachute cords and marine racing. Skiers literally click in and out of the grip with one simple hand movement.

“Lindsey is one of the most dominant and exciting ski racers in the world today. We are thrilled to have LEKI play a part in her goals and accomplishments over the next four years,” said Greg Wozer, Vice President of LEKI USA.
