Adjustable 2-section poles with aluminum/ carbon construction that reduces overall swing weight and promotes a quicker pace for advanced fitness walkers.
Full size adjustable Nordic Walking poles using 100% carbon for lightness and rigidity in the lower section, reducing the effort required from the hands to precisely plant the poles when moving quickly.
A great pole for the regular Nordic Walker that reduces vibration to a minimum.
Designed to grip pavement and deliver added support and stability, the LEKI Rubber Fitness Tips should always face towards the back, behind you. This position allows you to “push off” more efficiently, increasing your upper body workout. Remove the Rubber Fitness Tips to expose the Carbide Flextips if you Nordic Walk on gravel or slick surfaces.
Dual aluminum and carbon construction, streamlined grips and height adjustability make LEKI Instructor Nordic walking poles ideal for advanced fitness walkers. High-performance wrist straps and fitness-specific rubber walking tips equip the Instructor with the features needed for aerobic activity.
Rapidly growing in popularity in the United States, Nordic walking is a fresh approach to fitness. Started by the Finnish cross-country ski team to maintain conditioning during snow-less summer months, Nordic walking burns at least 20 percent more calories than regular walking. Two specially designed poles are used in a manner that mimics cross-country skiing, swinging to match each step you take and working your upper body while you walk. Nordic walking poles have a narrower grip than traditional trekking poles and feature form-fitting wrist straps and tapered rubber tips designed specifically for fitness walking.
LEKI utilizes lightweight anodized aluminum in the upper shaft of the two-section Instructor and constructs the lower shaft from ultra-light carbon. By utilizing carbon, LEKI reduces the overall swing weight of the poles while the aluminum increases overall durability.
Nordic walking subjects your wrists to a great amount of repetitive stress. The Instructor's Trigger Shark grips incorporate woven straps designed to help alleviate this issue. Completely hugging your wrist and hand, the trigger straps provide secure support and help to absorb the shock caused by the impact of each stride. An integrated click-release enables you to fully adjust the straps and disengage them from the poles when you need your hands free. When you're ready to go again, simply pop the straps back onto the grips and you can be on your way without any need for readjusting. The textured cork grip provides a firm, tactile handhold and reduces the sweat and tenderness caused by less forgiving grips.
Designed to deflect up to 30 degrees without damaging the lower pole sections of Instructor poles, LEKI's carbide flex tips greatly increase the longevity of your poles. These tips are ideal for use on gravel or slick surfaces. Press-fit rubber Nordic walking tips are included for optimal grip, support and stability on pavement. These tips should always face towards the back, behind you, allowing you to "push off" more efficiently and increasing your upper body workout.
LEKI Instructor Nordic walking poles are sold in pairs.
