The use of hiking poles provides support in challenging terrains, such as water crossings. The use of hiking poles also allows you to carry larger loads (approx. 20%), as using your hands automatically improves your posture and walking position.
Abbey’s lightweight hiking poles are made of aluminium. They are easy to carry – you can attach them to a backpack if you don’t want to use them all the time. The length of the pole is adjustable between 86 and 140 cm. You can find the right length for you by holding the rods in your hand, your elbow should be at a 90-degree angle when the rods hit the ground. The rubber handle and adjustable wrist strap improve the grip on the hand.
