The EXEL TravelFit Nordic Walking, hiking, and trekking poles are adjustable in length. Equipped with comfortable patented Nordic Walking straps, cork grips, durable carbide metal tips for off-road use and removable natural rubber boot-shaped Nordic Walking fitness tips/asphalt paws for hard surfaces. These 3-piece EXEL poles fit into backpacks and most smaller suitcases – unlike 2-piece collapsible twist-lock and flip-lock poles that do not. The EXEL TravelFit poles conveniently collapse down to 26 inches. Don’t get scammed by 2-piece walking poles that do not fit into travel luggage. Avoid ALL collapsible walking poles with cheap flimsy flip-locks and or bungee cords that are unsafe and not durable.
The EXEL TravelFit Nordic Walking Poles are far superior to all other cheap/flimsy collapsible poles found on Amazon and in Big Box Stores. EXEL of Finland makes the best Travel Poles. These are the best of all collapsible poles, but just to be honest, our one-piece walking poles are rated #1 for a reason, and that reason is just simple physics – durability and dependability. Twit-lock and flip-lock adjustable length/telescoping/collapsible poles are not recommended for everyday use. Athletes destroy them. Collapsible poles tend to vibrate, rattle, gradually collapse and can totally fail or collapse unexpectedly.
For everyday use, please consider any of our durable and user-friendly one-piece SWIX and EXEL Nordic Walking poles – ALL 32 sizes are in stock and ready to ship. Our recommendation for travel is always a padded travel bag and a pair of our one-piece SWIX and EXEL non-adjustable one-piece poles custom fit to each individual’s height. Don’t get scammed by collapsible poles. Seniors and those with balance issues should only use 1-piece walking poles custom fit to their height – even when traveling. Get a note from your doctor and you can take your awesome 1-piece walking poles through TSA and onto the plane.
WARNING: Seniors and individuals with balance issues should NOT use 2-piece and 3-piece twist-lock or flip-lock adjustable length/telescoping/collapsible poles! Athletes destroy them – especially the cheap/flimsy collapsible poles flooding the market from China. Seniors and individuals with balance issues should only use quality one-piece poles.
*Please note that SKIWALKING.COM and The American Nordic Walking System, the #1 rated retailer of walking poles in the USA, is the only retailer that is honest about the one-piece -vs- collapsible poles. Our valued customers appreciate our honesty. We hope you will too.
