Pole length advisor

No matter whether you fancy alpine skiing, cross-country skiing –classic or skating technique, ski roller, hiking, trekking or Nordic walking, proper pole usage demands choosing the right pole length. Indeed, poles should support the user's technique, protect against incorrect movements, prevent falls, and provide for optimal power transfer. This tall order can only be fulfilled by choosing the right pole length, which may vary significantly depending on the sport in question. To that end, LEKI provides a pole length advisor to determine the optimum pole length for each sport based on body height.
