TECHNICAL INFORMATIONS

How it was designed...

Entirely designed and validated during the course of a one-year collaboration with 14 demanding users, composed of a well-selected mix of hiking customers and trekking ambassadors. From the drafting of the specifications to the prototype validation tests, including the choice of the colour.
Thank you Serge, Evelyne, Olivier, Thomas, Perrine and all the others!

Eco-design

We decided to work on the durability aspect mainly by choosing a rubber formulation that is highly resistant to abrasion and deformation.
Our laboratory tests show 3 times less wear than the previous model (average abrasion at ambient and hot temperatures).
To maximise the durability, we also opted for a deep knobby pattern.
Consequently, the cap does not have to be replaced as often, thereby reducing the environmental impact.

Our other technical choices…

In addition to its durability, the rubber material of this cap has a higher grip coefficient on hard ground (road, stones, trees).
We have also specifically designed some V-shaped knobs to provide good grip on soft ground (dirt, mud).

To fit this cap on Quechua and Forclaz poles

Push the cap forcefully onto the tip, so the flexible material deforms to adapt to the tip. It is important to hit the ground hard 2 to 3 times to ensure its full insertion.
The grip on the pole tip has been designed so that the cap does not get lost easily when walking. The grip is maximised on a clean tip but decreases if there is any dust or moisture on the tip.
To remove it, pull it off with a twisting motion. This will make it much easier to remove.
