What are the differences between Nordic walking poles and hiking poles?
Nordic walking is a sport that requires 2 special poles that help the walker propel him or herself forwards, in a movement that strengthens the upper body. As opposed to hiking, where poles are only recommended, Nordic poles are essential to the sport. They give you support when you go uphill and help you avoid slipping on the downhills. The way you use your poles is therefore vastly different from hiking. That's why it's so crucial to choose poles specifically designed for the sport, adapted to your requirements when you go walking.
