Replacement Carbide Flextip as fitted to most models of LEKI poles.
Overall Length: 80mm
The Flextip is designed to grip on all but the hardest smooth surface thanks to its hollow point Tungsten Carbide tip. It is called a "Flex" tip due to its ability to withstand a bend of up to 30 degrees about its mid section if it gets stuck in a crack. If bent further then it may snap, but in such a way as to prevent damage to the pole section allowing the section to be re-used.
Most poles have the Flextip simply pushed in to place, the internal taper of the Flextip precisely engineered to match the taper of the end pole section. With these poles the old Flextip can be removed after being heated in warm water* with the new Flextip being held on after a few knockes in to the ground.
Carbon poles or those models with very shiny surface finish may have the Flextip glued in to place. The old tip is still removed after heating, but after heating for longer with hotter water. A little epoxy glue or similar will hold the new Flextip in place.
*Care should be taken with Carbon pole sections that they are not heated above 80°C
