Anyone using a LUPIT pole in IPSF competitions must use configuration 2 of the equipment standards.
LUPIT POLE CHAMPION is a high-tech competition pole manufactured to the highest standards of the pole industry.
The pole has a usable height of 4m and a diameter of 45mm.
The height of the truss system must be 414cm. It is a combination of a highly polished stainless steel tube on the outside and a very strong inner steel tube.
The competition pole extension rings can be added/removed at the base to fine-tune the height of the pole. This is an optional feature. The pole height includes 1 ring (1 cm) when ordered, which can be removed to lower the pole or up to 2 rings can be added to raise the pole. This adjustment feature ensures optimal pole placement and stability, as riggers are often unable to adjust the crosshead height of the truss with such precision.
The primary height adjustment feature is located on the top axis of the pole, which slides directly into the top bearing of the truss mount. It can be moved 3 cm in any direction, giving riggers some room for adjustment. In general, a truss height of 4140 mm is required for IPSF competition poles, but this can vary by +/- 30 mm
The pole has been tested under extreme conditions: Safety, materials, and mechanical construction.

Frequently asked questions
Depends on coating:
Stainless steel and Chrome poles can be cleaned with a cotton cloth and Nitro diluent 900, or pure alcohol or water and then wiped with dry cotton or microfibre cloth.
Powder-coated parts should be cleaned only with pure alcohol or water and then wiped with dry cotton or microfibre cloth.
Make sure you do not use glass cleaners, especially if they contain the Ammonium Hydroxide Cleaning Agent
Cleaning of the rubber surface on discs is also very important. Use pure alcohol for regular cleaning and nitro diluent 900 for refreshing the surface to be stickier.
LP PRO is also a pressure pole and it was designed for studios to have a possibility to install and take away poles in just a few seconds. This system works on most of the floor-ceiling combinations.
The pole must be in a straight vertical position. The water level should be used.
Remeasure the ceiling height and check if the pole has been ordered according to this height. If the ceiling is too high extra extension ring should be added on a lower bearing to extend the pole. Sufficient pressure must be applied between the ceiling and the floor.
When the pole is just shaken with hands without applying bodyweight, normally, it can be moved.
When doing the turns the body weight adds to the spring load and weight of the pole, all that represents the downforce which increases the friction between the floor and rubber on the lower disc.
It is important to clean the rubber surface and the floor regularly using cleaning pure alcohol. If that will not help, we will send you 3d stickers which are used for marking the position of the pole and sometimes to prevent movement if the floor is slippery.
If the poles are still moving after doing all this, then we recommend using our permanent mount solution.
