Technology - Quality Nordic Walking Poles

Real Nordic Walking Poles

Real Nordic Walking Poles:
The American Nordic Walking System and SKIWALKING.COM are committed to quality equipment and proven teaching systems. Don't get scammed by twist-locking adjustable/telescoping/collapsible poles. Be sure to look for patented comfortable Nordic Walking straps. And when it comes to learning correct Nordic Walking technique remember the goodness of Nordic Walking is the wonderful walking posture (super straight back) automatically provided when using the correct length poles.

Perfect length poles help us to automatically walk with a super straight back - better walking posture is biomechanically a good thing. This improved walking posture when combined with the unique 4-Wheel-Drive type action of walking with the correct length poles really does reduce the stress to the shins, knees, hips and back. Nordic Walking is low impact and yet provides a highly effective workout - burning more calories and working more muscle groups than regular walking.

The many benefits of Nordic Walking sounds like magic, but it is just good physics. When using the perfect length poles one's walking biomechanics hugely improves - radically reducing the stress to the shins, knees, hips and back. The American Nordic Walking System and SKIWALKING.COM keep it simple and easy. ALL customers receive a Perfect Length Guarantee, a FREE Nordic Walking DVD and we email additional instructions too!

Our patented and comfortable straps eliminate the need to grip the poles and allows us to keep our fingers relaxed. Instructions on how to Nordic Walk correctly is spelled out in The American Nordic Walking System.

SR 2000 Strap
SWIX Nordic Walking SR Strap
Patented and comfortable Nordic Walking straps. Patented by the Salomon Ski Company. Real Nordic Walking straps allow correct use of the poles and transfer of pressure into the heel of the hand. When Nordic Walking you do NOT grip the poles and the fingers are relaxed.

I have been coaching skiers for over 25 years and skiers don't use twist-locking poles! One-size fits all sounds good, but don't be fooled. Our SWIX one-piece poles are much safer, they don't rattle and vibrate, they don't collapse unexpectedly and they last longer. Hundreds of our customers accidentally purchased twist-locking poles from other companies, loved the concept of Nordic Walking, but hated the twist-lock systems. They LOVE our dependable poles - custom fit to each person's height.
