History of Leki
In 1948, Leki was founded by Karl Lenhart. Originally, Leki was a wood processing company, specialising in lettering. Karl Lenhart was an avid skier, but was very dissatisfied with the quality and functionality of ski poles at the time. He started using his machines to develop handles and counters for ski poles. Because Lenhart also had experience in aerospace, he knew how to process aluminium and composite. From these raw materials, he made his first own ski poles and marketed them in 1970 under the name LEKI.
