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; repeat with the lower section. NEVER GO OVER THE "STOP LINE", or the pole may break during use.
Advice for use
Before leaving: always check that your poles are well tightened.
When walking downhill, or during strong pushes in the mountains, for example, you can adjust and lengthen the poles.
When walking downhill, it's best to remove the strap so the pole doesn't get in your way if you fall.
Summer basket (small diameter) supplied, can be unscrewed, compatible with other larger optional models.
Rubber tips can also be fitted for walking on hard ground: roads, tarmac, etc...
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.
Do not attach to backpacks in stormy periods
Store the poles in a dry place, do not tighten the sections.
