Key feature
Poles that are very pleasant to use thanks to their low weight and user comfort. Light thanks to the carbon, but durable thanks to an aluminium section.

    Hiking poles - not Carbon fiber holes
    Not a body from Carbon fiber but Aluminium alloy

    Because in name of this item is mentioned CARBON, I expected that material would be manufactured from Carbon fiber. After better look I noticed that it is from Aluminium. This tricky name (CARBON) gives me wrong information and I am disappointed with marketing trick!!!

    Brand's answer :

    Dear Sir,
    I'm sorry to hear about your inconvenience with the Forclaz 700 Hiking Poles.
    I have renamed the product to not have this information there.
    The composition of the pole: Pole : 60.0% Aluminium, 40.0% Carbon. Handle : 80.0% Aluminium, 10.0% Polypropylene (PP), 5.0% Polyamide (PA), 5.0% Cork
    If you are not satisfied with the product you can return it to your closest store for an exchange or a refund.

    Im Einsatz leider nicht überzeugend !

    Nachdem ich meiner Frau die wirklich guten Wanderstöcke FORCLAZ 550 GRIP gekauft habe, wollte ich bei meinen Stöcken sparen und hab die günstigeren, als Paar angebotenen, FORCLAZ 700 bestellt. Die Teleskop-Stöcke lassen sich leicht verstellen und auf die eigene Körpergröße anpassen. Das Gewicht ist ebenfalls okay und sie liegen gut in der Hand.
    Leider entstehen aber bei jedem Aufsetzen der Stöcke störende und auf Dauer nervende Vibrationen und Schwingungen, die sowohl hörbar als auch spürbar sind. Auch wenn ich die Arretierung fester oder lockerer drehe ändert sich daran bedauerlicherweise nichts.

    Brand's answer :

    Guten Tag,

    vielen Dank, dass Sie sich die Zeit genommen haben, die Wanderstöcke Forclaz 700 von Quechua zu bewerten.
    Wir bedauern, dass Sie mit den Stöcken nicht zufrieden sind.
    Sie haben die Möglichkeit, die Wanderstöcke in einem unserer Stores oder online zu retournieren.

    Mit sportlichen Grüßen

    Gut mit leichten Abstrichen

    Die Stöcke sind erheblich leichter als fast alle Alu-Stöcke, allerdings nicht so leicht wie die leichtesten Markenprodukte. Im Vergleich zu meinen 20g leichteren Komperdell-Stöcken sind sie spürbar stabiler. Allerdings ist die Klemmung nicht so sicher wie etwa bei Komperdell oder Leki. Damit die Stöcke mein volles Gewicht tragen, muss der Verschluss schon sehr zugeknallt werden. Ich hoffe, dass Verschluss und Rohre das auch langfristig aushalten. Für normalen Gebrauch als Wanderstock erfüllt der Stock sehr gut seinen Dienst. Preis/Leistung ist gut-sehr gut.

Care instructions
If the pole gets wet, wipe it with a cloth or let it air dry; otherwise, it will rust and become difficult to open or close. Do not use lubricants.
Storage Tips
Store the poles in a dry place, do not tighten the sections.
Restricted use
Store your poles in you backpack during stormy weather.


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.
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
When descending, or during raids and other intense outings, you can lengthen your poles. 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 the poles are properly tightened before setting off by simulating considerable pressure, tightening further if necessary. Please note: The poles are not designed for holding on to in the event of a fall.
