Our field testers: all our poles are tested in use, by users who are representative of those for whom the products are designed, under conditions similar to those that you can find in use. Our Field Test Missions team up our product managers with people not affiliated with QUECHUA to test, improve and validate our products.
Laboratory bending and compression tests are carried out on the unfolded stick to ensure its effectiveness and resistance if the hiker has to heavily rely on it. 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.
Children up to around 12 years (depending on their height) who want the same equipment as mum and dad for going hiking.
Store the poles in a dry place, do not tighten the sections.
not suitable for adults.
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. 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.
