Use of trekking pole wristband:
The bearing capacity of the walking poles relies on a wristband, which transmits weight and backpack load to the wrist through the wristband, instead of holding the trekking pole’s handle forcefully. I believe that many people have this experience: using the trekking pole by holding the handle firmly, the hand will feel very tired when walking for a long time, especially when walking a long line, and sometimes even tried to throw the trekking pole. But once you learn to use the wristband correctly, no matter how long you use it, your hands will not feel tired.
So how to hold it properly?
First, adjust the wristband to the proper length and push the handle through the wristband loop.
Then press the wristband into our palms.
Then gently hold the handle again. Let the weight support the walking poles through the wrist strap instead of holding the handle tightly. If the length of the wristband is inappropriate, adjust it again.
