Hold the poles with your arms bent at a right angle. To adjust them: Unscrew the middle strand, underneath the ring of the lower strand, locate the size of the desired stick (in centimetres), and screw back 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 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.
Store the poles in a dry place, do not tighten the sections.
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.
Designed for Our design team has designed these baskets for mixed terrain (rocks, soft ground etc)The set of 2 small diameter baskets provides good support on mixed terrain and prevents the poles from getting stuck between stones or in cracks.
