Walking poles are fantastic for reducing repetative strain injuries on ankles, knees and hips. Use two together to help with balance and fatigue, to make the days walking a pleasure instead of a pain. Designed to cope with hard and soft terrain the trekking poles we sell are lightweight and ergonomically designed to be comfortable on the hands. Each set of hiking poles have different handles and 'feet' some with spikes and others with rubber tips, whereas some of the walking poles we sell have both spikes and rubber ends, so can be used in soft terrain as well as the toughest rock. As a photographic retailer, it won't surprise you to learn that we also have walking poles that will take a camera on the top and work like a monopod, which is a fantastic way of getting pin sharp photographs, without any camera shake.
