Our field testers. In addition to these laboratory tests, Théo, our trial engineer, ensures that each model also passes the test on standardised test terrain. They enable us to confirm comfort, ease of adjustment, vibrations, etc. Finally, durability is also confirmed with a durability test mission that can be up to 500 km long.
To set our thresholds, we have measured the stresses on the poles in the most demanding situations. During the design stage, each model passes laboratory tests that reproduce these stresses (compression, three-point flexing etc.) until rupture. We also test parts separately (tightening power, tearing, etc). Finally, these tests are regularly repeated during production to guarantee constant quality.
Store the poles without tightening the adjustment system, to avoid stress and retain their tightening power. Store poles in a dry place.
