At first I thought of the poles to be used in cross country skiing but then I remember from last year a new fitness thing where you take just the poles and use them to sort of lengthen out your strides when doing fitness walking? So I think they are used as a sort of fitness style walking stick to make you work a bit harder than plain old hiking?
