The difference between trekking poles and trekking poles in material and design
The main function of trekking poles is support, so metal alloys are often used as poles. The purpose is to strengthen support. The “handle” is designed to be grasped mainly by the palm, and the wristband is a simple loop belt. The shock absorption adopts the shock absorption spring inside the rod body, and the bottom of the rod only has the metal tip for anti-skid, regardless of the function of using on smooth, hard stone and roads.
Nordic walking sticks have various functions. To this end, carbon fiber composites are used as the pole body, and the wrist strap is specially designed, similar to a simple glove. The bottom is equipped with a small boot-like shock-absorbing head in addition to the metal tip. Its rod body is very light (three-two-weight). In addition to having enough support, it also has good elasticity. It can be bent, and the reaction force of the elasticity and straightness allows the user to take advantage of it. The specially designed wristband can change the direction of hand force in addition to the convenience of grasping the handle. In addition, instead of grasping the handle, using the wrist strap to support and push the cane is also a unique design to reduce hand vibration. The metal tip at the bottom can easily walk on the ground such as ice, snow and mud, while the anti-skid head of the small boots can ensure that it does not slip when walking on smooth ground such as slate and cement.
