Trekking Poles and Hiking Staffs
Country Walking Trekking Poles and Hiking Staffs
Trekking poles and hiking staffs are especially useful for country walks, lessening the load on the legs and knees. Trekking poles are sporty and youthful looking and Hiking Staffs are traditional and countrified.
A study conducted by Dr G Neureuther has shown that trekking poles reduce body weight carried by the legs by approx 5 kg every step on level ground and 8kg on hilly ground.
Hiking Staffs are available in shorter length for junior hikers too.
