Rapidly growing in popularity in the United States, Nordic walking is a fresh approach to fitness. Started by the Finnish cross-country ski team to maintain conditioning during snow-less summer months, Nordic walking burns at least 20 percent more calories than regular walking. Two specially designed poles are used in a manner that mimics cross-country skiing, swinging to match each step you take and working your upper body while you walk. Nordic walking poles have a narrower grip than traditional trekking poles and feature form-fitting wrist straps and tapered rubber tips designed specifically for fitness walking.
LEKI Spin Nordic walking poles are constructed of sturdy, lightweight anodized aluminum. These poles strike an excellent balance between swing weight and durable strength, making them ideal for first time users. LEKI's Super Lock System ensures that your poles securely maintain their locked position. Spin poles have an adjustable range of 39.4"-53.1" (100-135 cm) and are collapsible for convenient carry and storage.
Nordic walking can subject your wrists to a great amount of repetitive stress. The Spin's trigger straps are designed to help alleviate this issue. Completely hugging your wrist and hand, trigger straps provide secure support and help to absorb the shock caused by the impact of each stride. An integrated click-release enables you to fully adjust the straps and disengage them from the rubberized pole grips when you need your hands free. When you're ready to go again, simply pop the straps back onto the grips and you can be on your way without any need for readjusting.
Designed to deflect up to 30 degrees without damaging the lower pole sections of Spin poles, LEKI's carbide flex tips greatly increase the longevity of your poles. These tips are ideal for use on gravel or slick surfaces. Press-fit rubber Fitness Lite walking tips are included for optimal grip, support and stability on pavement. These tips should always face towards the back, behind you, allowing you to "push off" more efficiently and increasing your upper body workout.
Increasing the value of the Nordic Walking Starter Kit, a DVD is included to provide you with basic instructions and tips for maximizing your workout. A custom-fit nylon pole carry bag is included to make travel and storage of your Spin poles as easy as can be. A log book enables you to track your miles and gauge your fitness level.
