Folding Pole Size Choice

Lauren DeLong

Last Update vor 8 Monaten

Which sized poles (XShort, Short or Long) will be best for you depends on how you will be using the poles. 

TREKKING: If you are using the poles for hiking/trekking or for enhanced balance and stability then you will be planting the poles straight down for the most part.

NORDIC WALING: If you are using the poles for Nordic walking you will want to plant the pole at a 45 degree angle behind you.

MEASURING:  To measure, we recommend putting your arm at a 90 degree angle with your forearm parallel to the ground, and then measure from the top of your forearm to the ground. See the graphic below.
