Exel Sports Oy, based in Finland, is one of the leading producers of carbon composite high-end products such as poles for Nordic Walking, cross-country skiing, alpine, trekking and sports accessories. EXEL has been committed to providing durable one-piece ski poles and Nordic Walking Poles – that prove to be safer, lighter and much more durable than cheap twist-lock and flip-lock adjustable length/telescoping/collapsible poles from China.

The NEW Exel Nordic Walking website is

The Exel Urban Skier Nordic Walking Poles are available exclusively through SKIWALKING.COM and The American Nordic Walking System - the #1 retailer of Exel Nordic Walking Poles in the USA. SKIWALKING.COM and The American Nordic Walking System are also the only source in North America with a complete size curve of Exel Nordic Walking Poles.

According to Wikipedia the Finnish ski pole manufacturer Exel, working with Marko Kantaneva, introduced the trademarked Nordic Walker poles in 1997. "Nordic walking" became the accepted term for fitness walking with specially designed poles. The Exel Urban Skier Nordic Walking Poles are the culmination of Exel’s legendary technology and the proven success of the American Nordic Walking System. The Exel Urban Skier Nordic Walking carbon composite shafts are made in Mäntyharju, Finland and are equipped with real Nordic Walking straps – comfortable straps patented by the Salomon Ski Company.

The Exel Urban Skier Nordic Walking Poles are the ultimate poles for the city. They come with rubber asphalt tips/paws for pounding the pavement, for use in the mall, on indoor/outdoor tracks and other on any hard surface. The rubber tips are removable and when removed, the durable metal tips are exposed. The metal tips are ideal for use on trails, the beach, snow and ice.

WWW.SKIWALKING.COM and The American Nordic Walking System are taking orders online, working directly with Nordic Walking Instructors and retailers.
