Leki Response New Nordic Walking poles 2018 - Product parameters
There are several materials to choose from - aluminium, fibreglass, carbon or some combination of the previous three.
The heaviest - and the cheapest - is aluminium. Aluminium poles are sutiable for undemanding users that use them mainly as a support.
Fibreglass poles are lighter than aluminium ones, but are better suitable for softer surface.
More experienced trekkers should have carbon poles. The material is light, hard and absorbs shocks well.
Nordic Walking poles are usually robust, single-piece and cannot be telescopically shortened. However, there are two- or three-piece models available as well, making storage and travelling easier.
Telescopic trekking poles can be found practically anywhere. Their adjustale length is necessary for moving through various terrain. Also, one pair of poles can be used by several people.
An option to protect the sharp tips with rubber protection on hard and even terrain. Protection tips also reduce the unpleasant noise the metal makes when it comes into contact with the ground.
To calculate the correct pole length, multiply your height by 0.68. When you grip the pole in a vertical position, your upper arm and forearm should be at right angle.
