How do you adjust your walking poles?
Hold the poles with your arms bent at a right angle. To adjust them: Unscrew the middle section, underneath the ring of the lower section, locate the size of the desired stick (in centimetres), and screw back in firmly but do not overtighten; repeat with the lower section. NEVER GO OVER THE "STOP LINE" or the pole may break during use.
Before leaving: always check that your poles are well tightened.
When descending or when pushing forward on the mountain, for example, you can make your poles 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 that unscrews.
Compatible with wider winter baskets.
Bending and compression tests are done on extended poles to make sure they remain effective and can withstand stresses 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.
