LEVEL OF PRACTICE
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 cm), 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 poles are well tightened. When descending, or during 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) unscrewable stopper. Compatible with wider winter stoppers.
Store the poles in a dry place, do not tighten the sections.
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.
