Essential Nordic walking equipment
The most important part of Nordic walking equipment is good sticks. They should be the appropriate length and have the right feel. Padded Nordic walking gloves not only look good, they also support successful training. A reflective armband ensures safety in times of fading light, in case training takes longer than expected. Rubber pads for the tips of the sticks are also a standard piece of Nordic walking equipment. They lessen the impact and give the sticks more grip when walking on tarmac. So that you do not overexert yourself and you train within the optimal heart rate range, we recommend you purchase a heart rate monitor to complete your Nordic walking equipment.
