REAL Nordic Walking Straps - patented by the Salomon Ski Company

REAL Nordic Ski Walking Straps

Proven Superior At The Olympics And While Walking

I read about poles with Nordic Walking Straps, about poles with old fashion loop straps and poles with no straps. The important thing is that more people get out there and walk! Poles are helping many individuals that have walking issues (balance, joint, weight and other issues) get out and walk comfortably and more effectively!

My background as a Ski Coach helps me to appreciate REAL Nordic Walking Straps. These fingerless glove type straps have helped to revolutionize cross country skiing! At the Olympics every medal winner skied with a version of the Salomon Patented Straps. These same highly effective ski straps are ideal on Nordic Walking Poles. I Nordic Walk and/or cross country ski with these fantastic straps every day.

I host Nordic Walking Clinics pretty much everyday – 7 days a week. Often I hear from individuals that they have a garage full or attic full of old ski poles and they don’t really want to buy Nordic Walking Poles, but they do want to learn proper technique and a little about optimum pole length. 100% of the time they are shocked at how comfortable and effective REAL Nordic Walking Straps are. Seniors and individuals with balance issues also appreciate the secure feeling they get when strapped into their comfortable and patented straps.

Real Nordic Walking Straps eliminate the need to tightly grip the poles. The pressure is all in the heel of the hand and effectively transmitted through the strap – no white knuckling and NO squeezing of the poles. No sweaty hands, no slimy grips and no numb hands!

It is important to note that strapless poles are credited for thousands of cases of "skiers thumb". Strapless ski poles are no longer available at ski shops. And old fashion loop straps are not nearly as comfortable or effective as REAL Nordic Ski Walking Straps.

Not only are REAL Nordic Walking Straps essential, perfect length poles are important too.

Perfect length poles help us to automatically walk with a super straight back - better walking posture is biomechanically a good thing. This improved walking posture when combined with the unique 4-Wheel-Drive type action of walking with poles radically reduces the stress to the shins, knees, hips and back. Nordic Walking is low impact and yet provides a highly effective workout - burning more calories and working more muscle groups than regular walking.

Many poles from China are copying the Salomon patent, but their quality and stitching is totally poor. My favorite Nordic Walking Straps are the SWIX SR2001 and the EXEL Evolution - both available exclusively in the USA and Canada through The American Nordic Walking System and SKIWALKING.COM

Our poles are helping individuals walk farther, faster and more comfortably even when they have arthritis, carpal tunnel, cardio issues, asthma, MS, Parkinson's, Post Polio, cancer survivors, neuropathy, diabetes, runners knee, shin splints, stroke recovery, scoliosis, knee issues, new knees, hip issues, new hips, back issues, metal rods in their backs, sciatic nerve and many other unfortunate issues.

Please let me know if you have any questions at any time about the fun and many benefits of walking with REAL Nordic Walking Poles.

Have a great day – Nordic Ski Walking is the best,
Pete - owner/founder/coach The American Nordic Walking System and Nordic Ski Walking Poles
