Trekking poles are an essential tool for hiking and climbing. Here we give 10 reasons for using trekking poles and discuss how to overcome their shortcomings.

1. Trekking poles, like ski poles, allow your hands to push you forward or upward. Whether walking on the ground or climbing a steep mountain path, trekking poles can help you increase your average speed.
2, trekking poles can reduce the impact on your legs, knees, ankles and feet, especially when you are down. A study in Sports Medicine in 1999 showed that trekking poles can reduce the compression of the knee by 25%.
3, trekking poles can help you to drive away some of the nasty things outside. They can push the barbed blackberry and take away the spider web on the road, which makes you more comfortable.

4. The use of trekking poles while walking allows you to establish and maintain a constant rhythm that will speed up your pace. Especially in non-technical terrain, the performance is more pronounced on flat ground.
5. The two additional fulcrums can significantly increase your grip on very slippery surfaces such as mud, snow or gravel.
6, trekking poles can help you maintain a balance in difficult terrain, such as crossing the river, in the densely-rooted path, on the smooth marsh bridge. Keeping balance in these places will make you move faster and easier.

7, trekking poles can be used as a probe to discover information that your eyes cannot see. They can be used to find out conditions such as puddles, melting snow bridges, quicksands, etc.
8, they can be used to help resist the attack of dogs, bears or other wild creatures. Waving them on the head makes you look bigger or throw them like a bid gun.
9, trekking poles can reduce some of your weight. For example, if you are carrying a heavy bag, it may be a lot easier to hold the trekking pole under the bag during a short break.
10, trekking poles are not only used to support hiking. They can be used as tent poles to save the weight of individual tent poles, and the use of trekking poles to raise refuge tents can save 2 pounds (907 grams). (The trekking poles are also much stronger and stiffer than the tent poles, so that they are not easily broken in high winds, which helps build a safe refuge tent.) Trekking poles can also be used as a pair of medical splints, or as ultra-lightweight leather. Rowing paddles.
Raising a tent with a trekking pole can save weight (1-1.5 lbs / 454-680 g).

The disadvantages of trekking poles include increased energy consumption (your hands are much harder to use than trekking poles), they are caught by bushes, and they cannot be pulled out of the rock seam, limiting the function of the hands. They are not convenient to carry. Will affect the journey even more. Some mountain guides complain that using them too much causes elbow pain, for example, carrying a 75-pound/34-kg bag for a month. All these defects can be reduced or ignored.
For example, increased energy consumption can be offset by your increased speed and reduced pressure on your legs. Many donkeys prefer to use a trekking pole without a wristband, because you can quickly transfer the trekking pole to one hand and then eat and photograph. When you slide down or need to do something with your hands, you can quickly lose them.

Polyhexylhexydamine, commonly known as nylon-66, is a thermoplastic resin, generally made from hexydic acid and hexaamine aggregation. Insoluble in general solvents, only indisluble in paracetamol and so on. The mechanical strength and hardness are very high, and the rigidity is very high. Can be used as engineering plastics, mechanical accessories such as gears, lubrication bearings, instead of non-ferrous metal materials for machine housing, automotive engine blades, etc., can also be used to make synthetic fibers
A type of thermoplastic resin containing acetamine-based (-CONH-) in the repeated structural unit of the molecular main chain. Often made into cylindrical pellets, polyamide molecular weight for plastic is generally 15,000 to 20,000. The common features of all kinds of polyamides are fire resistance, high tensile strength (up to 104kPa), wear resistance, good electrical insulation, heat resistance (thermal deformation temperature at 455kPa above 150 degrees C), melting point 150 to 250 degrees C, high fluidity of fused resin, relative density of 1.05 to 1.15 (adding fillers can be increased to 1.6), mostly non-toxic. However, when the monomer content in resin is too high, it is not appropriate to long-term contact with skin or food, which is often the case in countries in terms of food hygiene.
