Perfect

These poles are perfect, my father uses them for his walks in the countryside, forest, mountains! They are compact and lightweight.

Nice sticks, not stiff, limited lifespan?

It's ideal that they can be folded and because they can be pre-tensioned, I hope they won't tick (unlike others). I have now been running with it for a weekend and am happy with it! You just notice that the construction is not very stiff due to the folding mechanism. I hope it doesn't become too loose over time. The quality of the connections does not seem very durable. I don't think these will last 10 years!

Already tested on long hikes. Easily foldable. Fits in the backpack without problem. Light. Bought a second time as a gift. Good value for money

Very practical and light

very useful

Excellent grip, light, opened and adjusted in one minute, folded and stored even in 5 liter backpacks. Not a very low price but it's worth it! Perhaps the only flaw is the buckle on the wrist which stretches on its own during walking, but can be adjusted in three seconds.

nice and compact but with 1 downside

Tried it for the first time this week on holiday. Very compact poles, fit in an average plastic material case and also in a slightly larger (35 - 40 liter) backpack. Can also be attached to a smaller backpack outside. That's all fine, but there is a downside. Especially in a quiet environment it can become annoying, every time the stick hits the ground you hear a metal rattle as if a spring is hitting something. If you start paying attention to it, it's quite annoying. It is striking that both sticks do not make that rattle at the same rate. What I have called my left stick makes the sound with every step, the right one only when a little more force is applied. But otherwise fine!

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.Hiking pole caps: ref. 8580865Summer baskets: ref. 8737774Winter baskets: ref. 8503857Replacement tip: ref. 8577676 or 8755646 (if new screwable version)

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.
