POLE LENGTH ADVISOR
A pole's length is an import factor for being able to wield it in such a way that all its benefits are utilized, whether it's alpine skiing, cross-country skiing that utilizes the classic or skating technique, cross trail, trail running, hiking and trekking, or Nordic walking. The pole should support a technique, prevent wrong movements, absorb potential falls, and enable an optimal transfer of strength. This only works when the pole is the right length – and this can vary a great deal according to the type of sport. This is why LEKI has a pole length aid for calculating the ideal pole length. It determines the optimal length for the respective sport in combination with the body size.
