About PaceMaker Stix
In 2008, PaceMaker Stix was founded for a number of reasons:

  • To broaden the appeal and popularity of Walking or Hiking Poles in the US; the sport has a much wider recognition and has been practiced in Europe since the 1930's
  • To offer consumers Walking, Hiking and Trekking pole products and accessories with both superior quality and value -- "affordable, every day quality and craftsmanship"
  • Give people of all ages a way to exercise and be healthier on their terms -- Pole Walking is an inclusionary, not an elitist or "uber athlete" type of sport or activity

The company is privately held, with headquarters in Grand Prairie, TX and manufacturing operations around the world.
