Black Diamond Z-Pole Carbon is what you'll want. Lighter than anything else, and stows really easily. If you're stuck on Leki, just don't get anything with antishock. It'll bother your arms over time, like say, on an ultra.

Great pole if the weight is OK

These aren't the lightest pole (not for ultra runners or even the most weight conscious fastpackers), but they are very comfortable in the hand and the antishock feature provides a cushy ride when you need four wheel drive on your hikes. I started using these when I started carrying my kiddo around on my back and I particularly like the Leki cork grips - they are, in my opinion, more durable than the BD cork grips and way more comfortable than any of the rubber gripped poles. The twist lock is an extra few seconds versus a flicklock system, but mine never seem to slip and overall I really like the poles.
