Hiking poles offer the necessary support and stability
Hiking poles or Nordic Walking poles make hiking a lot easier and simultaneously make it a hike for both your legs and arms. At Sportshop.com, you’ll find Nordic Walking and trekking poles by Leki. Both kind of poles are super light and foldable. This makes it easy to take the poles wherever you like. To globally calculate which length suits you best, multiply your body length by 0.68. Note that this is a common calculation and that you have to take your mobility in your joints, your muscle power and posture into account.
Going for a hike in the mountain? Using a trekking pole might be smart. You’ll have a lot more grip and stability on unpaved hiking trails. While descending or even climbing, you’ll stand firmly and the chance to fall or to get injured will be reduced. The trekking poles by Leki are easy to take because they’re foldable and made of lightweight material like carbon and aluminum.
Nordic Walking poles
Nordic Walking still is popular. It’s more intense compared to a regular hike because you use your arms a lot more. Nordic Walking is comparable to langlaufen. With Nordic Walking, you need poles that are slightly different from trekking poles. Leki also has special Nordic Walking poles. The poles have a special handle with a glove stuck to it. You’ll easily detach the pole from the glove. The poles are, just like trekking poles, made of light material like carbon and aluminum. The poles are foldable and thus easy to take on a trip.
Combine your hiking poles with the right pads
Your nordic walking poles include a metal spike. This spike is excellently suited for hikes over grass or sand. If you hike over asphalted roads, a pad has to be placed over this spike. This provides more grip and the metal spike will be maintained. To fully complete your hiking collection, also take a look at our hiking shoes and other hiking articles.
