Poles & Accessories

It is essential to choose a good and correctly sized pair of poles. Poles should be the right length for your height and arm length, and should feel comfortable.

In addition to my course fee, you have the opportunity to hire a pair of poles for the entire duration of the course. You have the opportunity to try different pairs. Part of my job is to assist you in finding the poles that suit you best.

A few points to consider when you buy:

SHAFT

Nordic Walking Poles are made from Carbon Fibre, Glass Fibre, or Aluminium.

Carbon Fibre Glass Fibre Aluminium
  • Very light and strong
  • Low swinging vibration
  • Long lasting
  • Hard on hard surfaces
  • More expensive
  • More swinging vibration
  • Less expensive
  • Cheaper
  • Less dampening of vibration
  • Less resilient
  • Heavier
Fixed Length Adjustable
  • Lighter than adjustable ones
  • Low vibration
  • Better swinging
  • Can be difficult when you travel by plane
  • Can only be used by a person wit the same height
  • Can be used by people with different heights
  • Good for travelling
  • Heavier than fixed length
  • Sand can wreck the joints
  • More vibration – especially when used by tall people
  • Can collapse (if not tightened correctly)

HAND STRAP

A good hand strap needs to

  • have the correct size or be adjustable
  • provide enough control over the pole
  • be made of material that breathes
  • be comfortable overall

If you consider Nordic Walking Poles as an investment in your future, you will understand that if you purchase a higher quality pole in the beginning, you will have a more comfortable handle, more endurable grip and tip and the kind of shaft material that suits your training and terrain best.
