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 inches), 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.
Before leaving: Always check that your sticks are tight.
During descents, or during strong pushes in the mountains, for example, you can adjust the sticks to make them longer.
When walking downhill, it's best to remove the strap so the pole won't get in your way if you fall.
Comes with a summer hiking (small diameter) basket.
Cannot be unscrewed
Laboratory bending and compression tests are carried out on the unfolded stick to ensure its effectiveness and resistance if the hiker has to heavily rely on it. 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.
