By: York Nordic
York Nordic, a New England based fitness manufacturer, has announced a new design option for the company's quality, lightweight walking poles. Customers can now choose 80% carbon fiber ultra-light and collapsible trekking poles with bamboo uppers featuring quick flip-locks, comfort grips, and tungsten tips.
The three-piece poles telescope from 53 to 24 inches for travelling, and weigh just 7.1 ounces each—the perfect weight for hikers and travelers. They also come with their own carrying case for easy storage in a backpack or carry-on.
According to Lauren DeLong, founder of York Nordic, "If you love to walk and love to travel, then these poles are for you. Our new bamboo hiking poles are made from 80% carbon fiber to keep them light and sturdy, and feature a gorgeous bamboo top section for a striking combination of modern technology with vintage flair. And bamboo is not just good-looking, it's also a sustainable and a responsible choice." She added that, "We talk to customers every day who are looking to use walking poles to add balance and stability while traveling abroad when days get long and legs get weary. The poles telescope to just 24 inches and weigh just 7.1 ounces each which make them a 'must-have' travel companion. We've even included detachable rubber feet, which add to balance and stability when walking on hard surfaces indoors, or outside on paved roads."
Studies have shown that Nordic walking is one of the most effective cardiovascular workouts available, burning 40% more calories than walking alone. As a low impact exercise or for improvement to balance, it is ideal for people of all ages, weights, and physical conditions.
The poles are available immediately at major retailers and online stores including Bonanza (http://www.bonanza.com/
