How to adjust 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.
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.
Directions for use
When walking downhill, pushing hard on mountainous terrain or adventure racing, for example, people sometimes extend their 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.
Precautions for use
Always check that your poles are properly tightened before departing.
All our poles undergo use tests carried out by users who represent the target market in similar conditions to those found in typical use. Our Field Test Missions team up our product managers with people not affiliated with QUECHUA to test, improve and validate our products.\n
