Acknowledged in the industry for its hiking gears, Quenchua has gained a significant popularity in the Indian market for its wide range of hiking products. The trekking poles by the brand are also no exception.
The Quenchua Forclaz 500 trek pole is compact, light and is easily adjustable to different wide ranges of length. It has been integrated with full telescopic features so that it can be easily adjusted according to the user and the terrain. Its special three way telescopic locking mechanism operates without any trouble in a flawless manner. In addition to this, the pole is compact in size and hence is hassle free to use. Crafted out of aluminium, it provides an incredible durability. This trek pole is certain to last with you for several longer duration treks. The tip of the pole has been constructed of durable tungsten carbide material that lasts much longer than the conventional rubber ones. This former has been known to provide better and clearer tractions on the trails during the trekking. Though the rubber foamed handle grip is also a decent one but it is usually not as reliable and sturdy as tungsten.
This new trek pole by Quechua has been provided with a removable strap which can be easily taken off when coming down the hill. As a general rule of thumb, removing the pole straps while descending is recommended as it then does not allow the pole to get in your way in case you happen to imbalance or fall.
With a compact and easy to use design, sturdy structure and reliability for both shorter as well as longer duration treks, this Quenchua Forclaz 500 trek pole is certainly a perfect value for your money. Its compact dimensions and light build have been appreciated by the experts on the market front. In addition to this, the build quality is simple top notch.
