Poles are used as support in various sports when challenging terrain or steep ascents and descents have to be overcome. Poles are used especially for hiking, trail running, cross-country skiing, skiing and ski touring. They are a great help to you, because they reduce the stress on bones and joints, facilitate balance in difficult terrain, make speed and indirectly improve endurance. Find poles that are exactly tailored to your favorite sport. Choose from telescopic or folding poles, carbon or aluminum poles and poles with or without cushioning.
