We are sometimes asked about the gloves or straps used with our favourite poles, Leki. So, we have produced this short article detailing the types of gloves available, the size options and the poles that they fit.
The choice of gloves/straps is confusing, as there are many similar types available and several attachment methods. These attachment methods are also used across the range of poles and not just on Nordic poles. So, as a result, some of the gloves look like the standard Nordic ones but are usually used on ski poles or trail poles.
If you are thinking of purchasing any of these gloves, try clicking on the images of them. Where possible, they will take you to Amazon, where they can be purchased.
There are currently eighteen different Nordic Walking poles in the Leki range. We have listed them in order of RRP (Recommended Retail Price) here. We have also highlighted the key features of each pole and given a short review.

You might be asking “Why do they need eighteen different poles?” Well, they are all slightly different and have features and a price to suit everyone. If you feel that it’s all a bit confusing, we have written an article on how to choose Nordic Walking poles. This should shed some light on the differences and help you choose the best poles for you.
Many people ask us “which Nordic Walking poles should I buy?”. This is a difficult question to answer, as there are so many factors that should influence a purchase. There are also many manufacturers of Nordic Walking poles. Our current preference is Leki, mainly because we like the gloves and glove attachment as well as the pole adjustment mechanism.
