    Default Leki trigger S poles

    For Alpine skiing there is simply no better ski pole than a Leki trigger S pole, the trigger system has been around for a while now at different levels, the most basic has a strap that fits over your glove and this clips to your Leki ski pole, a better, but more expensive option is to get the Leki glove or mittens, they have the attachment for the pole built in.
    Leki poles can be either Alloy or carbon fibre, the carbon fibre ones are more expensive but stronger.

    The top of the range is a Carbon 14 or Carbon 12 pole which are either 14mm shaft or 12mm shaft and retail for around $200 this season, a price drop on last year due to our strong currency.

    The earlier trigger system had one fault, if you had a crash and the pole is released from the strap, snow could get into the mechanism and until go you got it out or it melted, you couldn't get the pole clipped back on, the newer system called the "S" is the second generation and doesn't have this problem in my experience.

    hitting trees at Vail didn't appear to have hindered their function at all.

    I notice Leki have introduced new models for both the Trigger S poles as well as the Trigger S glove for next year that will be much lower priced, you will be able to get a glove for around $115 and a pole for about the same price.

    I'm looking at purchasing a set of the new trigger S 14 poles. Does everyone who uses them still rate them highly ?

    They are hard to find at most shops, I do have some but not many at all, I am already out of one popular size for the next 12 months.

    Just back from my first ski for the season and have to say the Leki Trigger S system is just awesome. At first it takes a little getting used to due to the have no straps but i guess its a false sense of security thing as im used to the old wrist through the loop process. Easy to engage and easy to disengage for getting on and off lifts. Comfortable to grip poles. Had one large fall and they didnt separate from the glove. this was a bonus as it was a steep section of the run and would have been a bugger to have to climb up to retrieve. Next purchase will be the Trigger S gloves to eliminate the wrist straps. Highly recommend them!
