Q: Are the straps adjustable?
A: Yes…and easily removable to swap out for a new color!
Q: How do I know what size I need?
A: Pole length is a preference depending on your comfort, but largely determined by your height. See size chart below.

Q: What’s the difference between an aluminum and bamboo ski pole?
A: Bamboo poles are much heavier than aluminum…and not as colorful!
Q: How do I swap my grips?
A: With your Mingos Pin Tool, line it up with the two pins on the side of the grip, and gently push inward. The pin cap will start to come out on the other side of the grip. Pull the pin cap out. Turn the grip counterclockwise to unscrew the grip from the pole. Pull the grip off the pole. Slide the new grip onto the pole (make sure pin cap is out). Turn the grip clockwise to thread the grip onto the pole. Push the pin cap back into grip to secure grip and strap.
Q: How do I swap my straps?
A: With your Mingos Pin Tool, line it up with the two pins on the side of the grip, and gently push inward. The pin cap will start to come out on the other side of the grip. Pull the pin cap out and then remove the strap from the grip. Place new strap into grip slot with loop aligned horizontally with pin hole. Push the pin cap back into place to secure new strap.
Q: How do I swap my baskets?
A: With the pole upside down, simply turn the basket counterclockwise to unthread the basket from the thread piece. Slide the old basket off and the new basket on. Then turn the new basket clockwise onto the thread piece until fully secured.
