Being unsure whether a pole is made from Standard size tubes or the slightly smaller Ultralight ones is the biggest single reason for our customers not getting their order for spare parts correct first time.
We have discovered a foolproof method for determining which type of pole you have which will work for any three-part LEKI pole even if they are so old that all the graphics have rubbed off the upper section.
This identification method works whichever locking system the pole has, provided the pole has three sections (i.e. an upper section with the grip on it, plus an adjustable middle and lower section. This also applies to the Wanderfreund series of walking sticks.
Ladies poles use the same diameter pole sections as Ultralight poles, but with shorter length sections. Their locking system parts are identical.
If the lower section with its flextip has been lost, and the pole is not one of a pair, the help another friendly LEKI owner will be required. If your friends have some other make of poles (you'll have to ask why!) we cannot guarantee that this method of identification will work.
