For 2017/18 we made some nice improvements to the segmented poles.
The threaded insert has been modified so that 2/3rds of the threads have been removed. It’s just as stable but it is three times (3x) faster to assemble and disassemble. Awesome right?! Now you can get unstuck and back to riding that much faster.
The pole is now stiffer and stronger than the previous version. The goal was to make the strength ratio of the aluminum pole and threaded inserts more equal. The first step was making the threaded insert narrower. Then we switched to a solid pole instead of a hollow pole. The updated poles added quite a bit more cost on the manufacturing side, but we didn’t increase the retail price of the sets. You win!
- The new poles are compatible with all previous jack mechanisms because the outer diameter is the same.
- If you have an older model jack you can up upgrade just the pole itself.
- All new jack purchases include the new poles.
