How to adjust your walking poles?
Hold the poles with your arms bent at a right angle. To adjust them: unscrew the middle section beneath the ring of the lower section, adjust to desired height (in ft), and screw back on firmly but not too tight. Do the same thing with the lower section. NEVER GO OVER THE "STOP LINE", or the pole may break during use.
Directions for use
Before setting off: check that your poles are properly tightened.
When descending, or other intense mountain outings, you can lengthen your poles.
When walking downhill, it's best to remove the strap so the pole won't get in your way if you fall.
Winter basket (large diameter) provided.
Compatible with Quechua summer baskets
Bending and compression tests are done on extended poles to make sure they remain effective and can withstand stress when the user has to lean on them heavily. Tests are also carried out to assess how the tightening systems cope with pulling, tightening and repeated stress, and pull tests on the tips and handles simulate poles getting stuck when in use.
Do not put them on backpacks in stormy weather.
Store the poles in a dry place, do not tighten the sections.
