    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.

Features

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.
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.

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.
How to adjust poles?
Always check that your poles are properly tightened before departing.
