My exclusive EROG/SC Ergonomic Strapless Comfort Grips Put the Perfect Fit in the Palm of Your Hand
The unique, truly ergonomic design of my ERGO/SC strapless grips provides unparalleled and unrestricted comfort by eliminating the need for complicated straps, which can cause uncomfortable compression of the metacarpal area of the hand, inhibit circulation, and be hot and chafing in warm weather. The 15-degree rear-flared design allows a relaxed hand to control the grip while maintaining a comfortable, neutral wrist
position. Its truly ergonomic design makes the poles feel like an extension of your body. With other pole grips impact shock can be transferred directly into your arms, which may be damaging to your joints and lead to fatigue. Physiotherapists agree that our strapless handle is designed to reduce injuries. A recent study conducted on Nordic poles with straps suggests that Nordic walking is a very safe form of exercise, but the most common injury is caused by the user being strapped into a NW pole; holding on until the very last moment before the hand hits the ground with the pole handle forcing the thumb into injury-causing abduction and extension*. * Source: "Nordic pole walking injuries" K.

Our Exclusive Cushiongrip Tips Cushion Every Stride and Provide Sure Traction
Exerstrider models feature our exclusive Cushiongrip tips, made of a very durable rubber compound designed to provide great durability and a soft, cushioned landing as well as the best available traction on paved and other stable natural surfaces. Our tips install quickly and easily over the pole's carbide-tips and can be removed in seconds whenever you need more traction in slippery or unstable surface conditions. The Cushiongrip tip design flexes on contact for a softer feel, and its boot-like design and tread provide better contact, traction and more resistance as you apply force to the poles. (They're 30% lighter than our original bell-shaped rubber tips*.) *Our original Bell-shaped tips are still available, but must be ordered separately. (NOTE: Cushiongrip tips are recommended unless the user intends to use the poles primarily as a balance aid).
Our Go Anywhere Tungsten-Carbide Tip Provides a Sure Grip on Any Surface
