Roam Walking Stick/Cane
Roam from Sabi more than lives up to its name. New York-based Danish designer Rie Nørregaard has reimagined the classic walking cane from the ground up, borrowing inspiration and materials from athletic gear. Roam’s ergonomically engineered handle is made from Baltic birch, the same lightweight and flexible wood used in skateboards. With a superior balance and grip, the handle delivers the reassuring sensory input of touching wood and is easy to clean, naturally hygienic and weathers beautifully.
The single-piece, non-adjustable shaft is made of the same high-strength aluminum seen in bicycle frames, with a similar powder-coated finish. And the cane's air-cushioned rubber-based tip is made from the material used in hiking boot soles—for smooth walking at any speed, and shock-absorbent stability on the most uneven surfaces. Rie’s section of bold Pantone colors for the Classic elevates this everyday implement to a cheery fashion statement. Or choose the Luxe in high-style black that’s so much more than basic.
Small: 31” h x 5.5" w x 1.25" d (78.7x14x3.2cm) (fits a person 4' 8" to 5' 4")
Medium: 34” h x 5.5" w x 1.25" d (86.4x14x3.2cm) (fits a person 5' 4" to 5' 9")
Large: 37” h x 5.5" w x 1.25" d (94x14x3.2cm) (fits a person 5' 9" to 6' 3")
Sizing is based on the statistics of the height of people 50 and older in the US. A physical therapist may suggest having a cane cut to a special size. According to research, users are most likely to choose a cane too tall for them. The makers recommend sizing down for people who are 5' 4" and 5' 9".
The cane is appropriate for a person up to 300 lbs
Luxe version features a hand-stained Baltic birch wood handle
