Technical Information

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.

Directions for use
Before leaving: always check that your poles are well tightened. The poles can be lengthened for example, for descents, or for a hard push up the mountain . When walking downhill, it's best to remove the strap so the pole doesn't get in your way if you fall.

Accessories

Test
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.

Product test
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.

Stockage tips
Store the poles in a dry place, without tightening the sections.

Great poles
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Used poles walking the AV2 Gran Paradiso, they coped very well on the very steep terrain and through snow & boulder fields. Found them very durable and easy to collapse. After 8 days walking they're still in one piece.
