The Ultimate Pole for Your Hikes

I am extremely satisfied with my purchase of the FORCLAZ MT900 Black ultra-compact trekking pole from DECATHLON. As an avid hiker, I was looking for a reliable, easy-to-carry pole, and this model exceeded all my expectations. Compactness and Portability The first thing that impressed me is its compactness. The stick folds into an ultra-compact size that fits easily into my backpack without taking up unnecessary space. It's ideal for hikes where every inch counts. Robustness and Comfort Despite its compact size, the FORCLAZ MT900 pole is incredibly robust. It provides excellent support on all types of terrain, whether rocky, muddy or snowy trails. The locking system is secure and reliable, ensuring optimal stability while walking. The ergonomic handle is very comfortable, even on long hikes. The foam handle absorbs moisture well, providing a nice, firm grip without slipping. Ease of Use This stick is also very easy to assemble and disassemble. In just a few seconds it is ready to use or folded up. This ease of use is a real plus, especially when changing terrain frequently. Value for Money Finally, the quality/price ratio is excellent. For such a high-performance and practical product, the price is very reasonable. It is obvious that DECATHLON put a lot of care and expertise into the design of this trekking pole.

GOOD

The stick itself is very good, the only downside is that it quite regularly comes apart during the activity and you have to stop to put it back into stick mode. It would have been necessary to put some sort of clips.

This is a good design, but needs improvements. I used it for about 2 years lightly, before it basically gives way. The size is good, handle is nice like a bit traditional. Not so sturdy. Maybe can work on these points. Price also a bit steep.

Excellent sticks.

Solid trekking poles

The first thing that catches your eye is its very solid workmanship and very low weight. Previously, I used poles that were cheaper and more for hiking than for more difficult trails. These poles are really solid and provide great support when walking with weight on difficult terrain. After folding, they take up very little space, and I also bought plates for winter conditions.

Additional Product Information

Composition

Shaft: 100.0% Aluminium ; Handle: 100.0% Ethylene Vinyl Acetate

How it was designed...

Fully designed and validated by our team at the foot of Mont Blanc, a team with enthusiastic and demanding trekkers, during legendary treks: Mont Blanc, Atlas Mountains in Morocco, Tenerife.The pole’s durability has also been tested by a 550 km mission test in the Canaries and the Pyrenees (GR10).

Why have we worked hard on durability?

You trek to enjoy the calm of great expanses which sometimes takes you far from civilisation. You also carry your belongings for several days. Therefore, you need to rely on the resistance of your poles.We have selected wider tubes in the highest grade aluminium. We have secured the push-pin area with internal reinforcement. Compression test results (pressure on the pole axis) show that this model can therefore support 560 N (~56 kg) per pole.

Why have we focused on compactness?

To get to your trek you will sometimes have to take transport. You will also have to carry all your equipment in your bag. It’s therefore much more practical to have compact poles. Once collapsed, these poles fit in the side pocket of your trekking backpack.

How did we design this handle?

We favoured EVA foam, soft material, perfect for handling perspiration and resisting tears.We added a long grip underneath the handle for a lower hold uphill and on banking terrain.The knob is the most comfortable in the range with its long, rounded shape and soft material. It provides good grip from above.Finally, we designed the wrist-strap without extra thickness and few seams to avoid blisters.

How to adjust your poles to the correct length?

To use the pole: firstly, extend the pole until the “click” of the push-pin. Refer to the instructions attached to the pole.To adjust the length: Hold the poles with your arms bent at a right angle. - open the outer lever- slide the tube to the desired length- close the leverNever go over the STOP line to avoid breaking the pole.

Directions for use

This hiking pole is designed to help you balance, propel yourself and distribute effort between arms and legs.To be on the safe side, check before you set off and at regular intervals that your baton is locked in place by simulating heavy bumps. If you notice that your pole tends to slide down, the locking mechanism turn ring needs adjusting. Open the lever and turn the knob a quarter to a half turn.Do not put on your backpack in case of a storm.

Care tips

Proper maintenance of your baton will ensure that it functions optimally and that it lasts longer.After use, if water has penetrated the stick, remove the strands and allow to dry. If necessary, clean the dust or mud with water or a dry brush. Once dry, you can reassemble the strands.We recommend that you do not attempt to oil or grease the mechanisms.

Why is the pole sold individually?

At Decathlon, we have decided to sell our hiking/trekking poles individually. First because of how they are used. Indeed, some people only want to use one pole. Also, if one of your poles breaks, this means you only have to buy one and not a complete pair.

Accessories sold separately and adapted to this model

The advantage of buying Forclaz trekking poles is that you have a wide choice of compatible accessories and spare parts. So you can enjoy it for as long as possible.Summer baskets : ref. 8737774Winter baskets: ref. 8503857

Product testing

To set our thresholds, we have measured the stresses on the poles in the most demanding situations. During its development, each model undergoes laboratory tests that reproduce these stresses (compression, three-point bending, etc.) until it breaks. We also tests parts separately (tightening power, tearing, etc). Finally, these tests are regularly repeated in production to ensure a constant level of quality.

Storage instructions

Store the baton in a dry place without tightening the adjusting systems, so that they are not strained and retain their clamping power.
