    Product feature
    1. Technical tests for poles
      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.
    2. 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 cm), 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.
    3. 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
      Directions for use When hiking uphill, use the strap for support; when walking downhill, it's best to remove the strap so the pole won't get in your way if you fall.
    4. How to adjust poles?
      Always check that your poles are properly tightened before departing.

      The cover/cap at the end of the pole was missing. Didn't realize while purchasing. It's very inconvenient to carry it.
    • Did good job, till it broke

      It is what it says and functionally very useful. However after my first trek the lowest bar broke by getting slightly stuck on the path. I was very surprised because it survived worse terrain. I have no clue how can that happen but feeling really sad because I paid extra for this model over the basic one. My recommendation - please go for the basic model or take a bamboo stick and save your money
      Light weight, good grip
      Weak

      I used these poles when trekking 100 km in 5 days across Spain. They were great on the uneven paths, saw me through some muddy patches. Great for travelling because they fitting inside my pack for when it went into the hold on the aircraft. I would recommend buying the rubber tips because I find the tap tap noise on concrete or tarmac annoying and sometimes lost grip on these sections of road / trail.
      Light weight pole, sturdy and practical.
      Rubber tips are an extra purchase
    • Lightweight, straightforward, good colour

      Not for really tall people, as most of weight reduction seems to be in shortening the pole a bit. This is handy though as you can strap it to your bag without worrying about snagging the strap on branches. I didn't get anything to cover the metal tips, which is frustrating, it should come as standard, not as an accessory that can be out of stock.
      Easy to adjust strap, fold away small, buy singly
      Quite short
