All our poles undergo use tests carried out by users who represent the target market in similar conditions to those found in typical use. In particular, our Field Test Missions team up our product managers with people not affiliated with QUECHUA to test, improve and validate our products.
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.
Store the poles in a dry place, without tightening the sections.
