The Urban Poling 4 Life Walking Poles for Fitness are premium-quality Nordic walking poles with patented ergonomic grip handles. The special grips allow users to engage core muscles with every step, to burn more calories than walking without poles. The Urban Poling 4 Life Walking Poles for Fitness allow users to burn up 20 to 46% more calories than walking without poles. The ergonomically designed handles provide for better comfort and shock absorption to minimize vibration to wrist, elbows and shoulder joints. Fitness trainers and physiotherapists agree that the patented strapless handles are designed to reduce injuries while allowing users to engage their core muscles with every step. Unlike other walking poles, the special handle has a wide ledge platform instead of a strap for fixing the palm edge and supporting the wrist in a neutral position, which allows the user to push much harder without wrist strain. The bright pink boot tips were tested by a panel of Certification Occupational Therapists and Physiotherapists for quality, safety, and performance. Made of light weight aircraft aluminum, the 2-sectional collapsible poles are adjustable for user heights from 4 feet 2 inches to 6 feet 2 inches. Hidden beneath the rubber boot tip of each pole is a sharp carbide steel tip, which provides increased stability on wet and uneven terrain, such as grass, trails, gravel, sand and snow. Use the durable rubber boot-shaped tips indoors on dry sidewalks and asphalt, and remove the rubber tips to expose the carbide steel tips.
