Pole : 100.0% Aluminium Handle : 75.0% Aluminium, Handle : 20.0% Styrene Ethylene Butadiene Styrene, Handle : 5.0% Polyamide
Our field testers: all our poles are tested in the field by users who represent the target market under the same conditions as you would encounter in use. 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 conducted on the extended poles to make sure they work properly and can withstand the stresses involved 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, do not tighten the sections.
