    Did the job!
    Light weight pole, sturdy and practical. Rubber tips are an extra purchase

    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.

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.

Features

How to adjust your walking poles?
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.
User tips
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.
Accessories
Summer washer (small diameter) unscrewable, supplied. Compatible with winter washers, wider.
