The brand Leki
Leki was founded by Karl Lenhart in 1948. Leki was originally a wood processing company, but because Karl loved a fun ski trip, he started developing his own ski poles. He was not satisfied with the quality and functionality of the current ski poles and started working with his own handle counters for the ski poles.
Karl also knew a little about aircraft construction. This made him easy to work well with aluminum and composite. From these materials he had made his first own ski poles and released them under the name LEKI.
Nowadays, Leki is known worldwide. The products are still being designed in Kirchheim. Next they are produced in Czech Republic. Leki stands for producing absolute top products. Their mission is to combine safety and comfort with an attractive design.
