Built for those operating at the high end of their aerobic capacity, the Mezza Race will willingly accompany you on trips to the podium, FKT attempts, and beyond. Utilizing a light and durable carbon shaft, the Mezza Race boasts a low swing weight, helping ease the burden while you are operating at your limit. Compared to the current Mezza Race pole, this model utilizes the Shark 2.0 grip system, which features all the functionality of the Nordic Grip, but in a slightly less ergonomic package. The trailing basket design allows for efficient uphill travel while the Shark 2.0 grip pairs seamlessly with select Leki gloves for efficient power transfer and exceptionally quick transitions. With its excellent blend of performance and ease of use, the Mezza Race - 2021/22 is a smart choice to bring home.

  • Trigger Shark 2.0 grip pairs with Leki gloves for exceptional power transfer and ease of use.
  • Cork Grip provides a solid platform to hold, which is especially useful during blizzard conditions.
  • Trailing basket design prevents the pole from being obnoxiously leveraged out of the snow.
  • Carbon construction provides a solid platform to push against and allows the pole to have an athletic weight.
  • An excellent option for racing and speedy ski ascents.

Update 2023/24: This model was replaced by Leki Mezza Race Pole.

Questions & Reviews

Question from CDB
Can these be cut to a shorter length?
Answer from Jeff
Christopher, Not really, would be very difficult to remove grips. They do come in 5mm increments.

Question from Peter G Frank
Hey Im 5ft 9in i was wondering if a 145 would be way too big for me. I noticed that a lot of European racers are using longer poles. I have these poles in a 125 and they feel a bit short. looking at maybe getting a second longer pair of vertical races and races that have less technical skiing and longer steeper assents.
Answer from Carlos M
Hi Peter,

I would say a 145 is probably too big for you, yes. 125 does sound a bit short, you are likely 130 or 135. I'm 5'11 and I like 135. It is normal to size up beyond your downhill pole length in a race pole, for sure, but 145 from 125 would be a huge jump.

If you wanted a longer pair, I think 135 would probably be plenty. 140 at most, but that might be a bit much.

Question from Kyle R
Are these measured from tip to top like Leki's nordic poles? Or does the basket add some length? I'm picky about my pole length and these seem hard to shorten.
Answer from Gabriel I
Hi Kyle, these are measured from the top of the handles to the tip of the pointy end. And they measure true!
