Important aspects that You should consider when buying Nordic Walking Poles are performance, comfort and adaptability.
Material: aluminum or carbon
Most commonly, poles are made of aluminum or carbon. Every material has its advantages and disadvantages. Carbon poles are very resistant and also lighter than aluminum poles. The disadvantage of carbon is that it can break through immediately and does not bend like an aluminum pole.
Thanks to clamping systems (Power Lock, Power Lock 2, Power Lock 3, Twist Lock, Speed Lock 2, Flick Lock, etc.) You can adjust the pole to your body size (Attention: Old or damaged clamping systems have a low holding power and thus adjust high risk of injury!)
Grips: EVA foam or cork
Cork grips offer more comfort than gripgs made of EVA foam. Because grips made from the natural product reduce perspiration and blisters on the hands. Innovative technologies such as Trigger Shark / Trigger Shark 2.0 provide additional comfort and safety.
