How to use the wristband is very important
When most people use trekking poles, they hold the handle of the trekking pole tightly and exert force, thinking that the function of the wristband is only to keep the trekking pole from leaving their wrist. In fact, the wristband also has the function of borrowing and transferring.
When we use trekking poles to go downhill, the impact force of trekking poles should be transmitted to our arms through the wrist strap;
When going uphill, the thrust of the arm is transmitted to the trekking pole through the wrist strap to generate the assistance of the uphill. So when our wrist goes through the wristband, we should not reach directly from the top of the wristband to grab the handle, but we should pick up the wristband, thread it under the wristband, press the strap into our palm, and then Grab the handle lightly. Support the trekking poles through the wrist straps, rather than gripping the handles tightly. If there is a buckle, make some adjustments, remember not to affect the operation of the trekking pole.
Stand still on the flat ground, hold the trekking pole, the arm hangs down naturally, use the elbow as the fulcrum, raise the forearm, make the forearm parallel to the ground, and form a right angle of 90° with the upper arm, at this time, hold the trekking pole, the tip of the stick is downward perpendicular to the upper arm. The length of ground contact is the correct length for trekking poles on flat ground. Just lock each section of the trekking pole, and then adjust the other trekking pole that has not been adjusted to the same length as the one with the locked length.View detail
