This is a great product. I have severe arthritis and my personal trainer recommended these for walking outdoors. They work, especially the gloves that reduce the need to grip the poles. Highly recommend this product and elderluxe.com.

The Smart Traveller Aluminum walking pole is a Nordic walking pole for the casual walker with high expectations. It can handle challenging trails and will win you over with its small pack size of 26.5 in (67 cm). High-quality components, such as the 2-component Shark Cor-Tec Cork grip, Smart Tip and the Super Lock System make the Smart Traveller Alu very light, extremely robust and easy to stow in a suitcase.

With these LEKI Nordic Walking poles in your hands, the most basic stroll becomes a surprisingly easy, full-body workout. If you are a runner ready to give your knees a rest, someone looking for posture help, or an active athlete needing another modality for cross-training, Nordic Walking is your Gym On The Go!

Two poles, countless benefits:

  • Strengthen your upper body and create resistance to build better bone density.
  • Burn 40% more calories than regular walking without poles.
  • Pump up your cardio by increasing oxygen consumption.
  • Great workout without perceived exertion.
  • No need to stop your walking routine if you travel…take your poles with you as they collapse down to 26 in for compact storage and travel.

LEKI Trigger Shark: The revolution in the Nordic sports sector is the Nordic Trigger Shark grip – strap system. The Nordic trigger connects the strap and pole. It guarantees optimal transmission of energy from the arm to the pole and is comfortable to put on and take off. The clicking-in system offers the highest level of comfort: blowing your nose, grabbing your water bottle and exercises are no longer a problem. Simply push the button to remove the strap from the grip; it always stays around your hand. And it’s just as easy to re-connect it to the grip – just click it in.
 
LEKI Smart Tip: A real multi terrain talent for even more fun in Nordic Walking. The slip-proof pad ensures good grip on pavement surfaces and the integrated, telescopic carbide tip provides steady hold on meadows, mud and snow.

In the durable Pad a carbide tip is integrated, which can be extended as required for use on non-paved ground. With a clever lever construction it is easy and fast to handle. Move the lever forward and push the Pad up and move the lever back to lock in position.

No more questioning where to store the dirty and dusty rubber tips during the exercise. And when ground conditions change, the carbide tip can quickly disappear inside the pad in a twinkling of an eye. Move the lever forward, pull the pad down and move the lever back to lock in chosen position. Futuristic and precisely designed this tip technology doesn’t need baskets any more.

LEKI SLS Locking System: The pole sections have to provide reliable hold in every situation – a decisive demand on our locking system. For this reason, LEKI has developed the world’s best internal locking system –Super Locking System (SLS)
 

  • Maximum safety
  • Highest holding force: 309 lb (140 kg) guaranteed
  • Extremely high back turn security (more than 360 °)

LEKI Adjustment System: Telescopic trekking poles can be perfectly adjusted for length so that optimal leverage when ascending and the best hold for load relief when descending can be guaranteed.
 
Adjustable Nordic walking poles are variable, which allows you to find your personal pole length. In addition, this pole length can be changed to account for ability or speed.


Shark COR-Tec Grip: Cross-country style grip with the Trigger Strap release button and cork gripping surface.

  • Quick, simple attachment and release of the strap with one finger.
  • Perfect and precise positioning of the hand on the grip for maximum comfort and performance.

NORDIC WALKING 101

Nordic Walking is known by many names but pole walking, ski walking and Nordic ski walking are all basically the same activity with the difference being in the quality of the product and the technique.

Nordic Walking has roots all the way back to the 1930s in Finland when cross-country skiers would use poles on dry land for training exercises. The actual sport of Nordic Walking took off in Europe about a decade ago and is now catching on in North America.

LEKI introduced Nordic Walking to North America in 2003 and consistently manufactures the highest quality poles for any level of Nordic Walker.

The benefits associated with Nordic Walking are rewarding no matter what your age, gender or size. Some of the best stories receive here at ElderLuxe and at LEKI are from people just getting started who notice measurable differences in their strength, weight and posture.

  • Burn up to 40% more calories during your walk.
  • Pump up your cardio by increasing oxygen consumption up to 25%.
  • Reduce stress to your knees and lower joints.
  • Strengthen your upper body and create resistance to build better bone density.
  • Adapt distance and intensity to weather, terrain, and physical condition of the individual.
  • Trained instructors suggest that as with any exercise program, you should consult a physician before beginning; Nordic Walking can be strenuous without perceived exertion.

There seems to be a bit of confusion about adjustable length vs. fixed length poles. While LEKI sells both adjustable AND fixed length poles, we offer their top of the line adjustable poles, because everybody likes to walk their own walk. The locking system is the same quality locking system found on their Trekking poles; used by world acclaimed alpinists and mountain climbers. It’s been rated the strongest locking system of its kind by the independent testing facility, TÜV. The length on adjustable poles can be changed to accommodate varied terrain and/or personal technique. And they're versatile enough that your friends can try them out!

A lot of folks comment on how easy it is to use LEKI's patented releasable Trigger Strap found on their Nordic Walking poles. The convenience of instant release without having to undo the straps is amazing when you want to get a water bottle from your hip pack or if you need to put on a jacket. Just click in and out of the grip with ease.

The LEKI Rubber Tips that come on your Nordic Walking poles are angled to allow you to push off during your stride which increases your upper body workout.

There are so many brands of Nordic Walking poles on the market now and it is easy to become confused and just go with the lowest priced poles. We would like you to see the difference between LEKI’s German engineering and other brands, keeping in mind that LEKI has a dedicated Customer Service Department located in Buffalo, NY that can answer your questions about their products. Used and maintained properly, LEKI poles can provide a lifetime of enjoyment and are worth the investment in your health.

When considering which kind of pole would be best for you, ask yourself the following questions:

Are you a beginner? Then you will probably want to go with fully adjustable poles. Until you develop your technique, you may not be certain what size is absolutely best for you.

Are you Nordic Walking on different terrain with varied intensity? If so, you will probably use at least partially adjustable or fully adjustable poles. This will allow you to tweak the length when switching terrain giving you the maximum benefit of your workout.
