Get to know Decathlon's specialist fitness walking brand.

Nordic walking is practiced with special Nordic walking poles on flat or slightly sloped terrains. Their different features will essentially depend on the frequency and hence the intensity of use. In general, Nordic walking poles are made of a single tube, however, in some special cases, you may need telescopic poles.

SINGLE-PIECE POLES VS TELESCOPIC POLES

Single-piece poles have the advantage of being lightweight and not retracting during use.

They are available in five different lengths : 105, 110, 115, 120 and 125cm. To choose the right length for you, multiply your height in centimetres by 0.68. For example, if you are 1.67m tall, choose 110m poles because 167 x 0.68 = 113.56.

Telescopic poles with two sections may exceptionally be used for travelling more easily (These poles can also be used in clubs for easily initiating people of different heights to Nordic walking.
