Didn't use much

For normal rocky climbes may work- but for snow trails it is not of much use. I would not recommend.

Walking pole not consistent

I bought 2 poles, supposed to have anti shock. One has but the other doesn’t. Didn’t bother to go back as not sure if it can be changed.

Life and Knee Savers

My first time using a trekking pole, used them on the 4 day Kedarkantha Winter trek. They really help distribute weight and save your knees and ankes from extra pressure. The ascent and descent portions of the trek both became relatively easy. Also inspite of a few rough uses the poles survived intact through the trekm would give a thumbs up for the durability of the product. Also the springs in them help in impact shock absorption. Would recommend to use the correctly after viewing a couple of usage videos which will help you adjust the poles correctly and then you can enjoy the maximum benefits. I used a pair of these, some prefer using a single pole.

Hello Malek, 

Thank you for your feedback.

Glad to know that you enjoy using this pole!

This anti-shock concept simply means it has an in-built cushioning system to absorb hard impacts.

Interesting to know that you improvised by using this pole for your tarp support.

We actually sell poles for tarp, do take a look here

Hope to hear from you again :)

excellent shock absorption

I used it on treks and hikes like jalori pass , great Himalayan nation park and it worked fine . the best part is the shock absorption which worked fine in rocky surface .

Good

This is my 1st hikking pole and loving it especially its anti shock mode and its stability. Except that struggle every time to get to Anti shock mode.. twist clockwise & anti clockwise a few times. Hope heights adjustment could be easier too but nevertheless still a good product.

Hello Li Ching,

Thank you for your review.

Glad to know that you enjoyed using this pole.

Just a little tip when activating the anti-shock mode, screw it tightly and then screw it to the opposite direction and you should hear the "click" sound.

Keep exploring and enjoy your next trip!

Hope to hear from you again :)

Good for knee support

The top of the range walking pole, with multiple height adjustments mean these can be quickly assembled and taken apart for ease of transport. Wrist strap also adjustable to length, poles feel sturdy in use. One star deducted because these are sold without rubber end pieces (available for an extra £2.99): a bit weird when the £10 version is sold with them attached

Malfunction

Antishock not function after first used. Durability very low

Hi Ching Lai, 

Thank you for taking time to review our F500 Anti-Shock Hiking Poles. We are sorry to hear that you did not have good experience with our hiking poles. 

However, the Anti-Shock function is designed to be turn off when not using it. To engage or disengage the anti-shock spring, you will ned to twist the pole in the direction of the lock and unlock symbol on the pole itself (once the pole has been secured). If this is not clear, do pop by any of our Decathlon stores where one of our experts will be at hand to show you. Otherwise do get in touch with me and I will be able to show your through a video demonstration and talk you through step by step. 
And as part of our Decathlon's Member, you could also pop by any of our Decathlon store, and our friendly teammates will access if your Hiking Pole is damaged. And we will replace a new one for you. 

Andrew, Your helpful trekking guide

Hi Wai Kong,

Great to know that you enjoyed our product and thank you so much for dropping us a review on the poles!

I am wondering if you have a pair or just one of them? Just sharing a quick tip that for hiking poles, it works so much more efficiently if you use two of them! It helps also with the balance.

Additional Product Information

Composition

Shaft

  • 100% Aluminum

Handle

  • 100% Ethylene vinyl acetate

How it was designed...

This model is entirely designed and approved by our team, at the foot of Mont Blanc. To fulfill the anti-shock promise, we have chosen this system with a spring integrated in the screw tightening system. We then designed a handle that enables powerful and comfortable grip whatever the position: along the tube for climbs and banking terrain, with the wrist-strap for efficient pushing and on the knob for descents.

How to adjust your poles to the correct length?

Hold the poles with your arms bent at a right angle. To adjust the length: unscrew the middle section, find the size of the pole you need and screw back tightly. Tighten more if you notice that the pole shortens as you use it. Do the same with the lower section. Never go over the STOP line to avoid breaking the pole.

Directions for use

These hiking poles are designed to help you balance, propel yourself and spread the effort between the arms and legs. To increase safety, check your pole's locking mechanism by pressing down hard on it before you start and at regular intervals. Do not attach to your backpack in stormy weather.

Care instructions

Maintaining your poles properly enables you to maintain optimal function and increase their lifespan. After use, if water has got into the pole, take the parts apart and allow to dry. Clean any dust and mud with water or without, with a soft brush or paintbrush. Once dry, you can reassemble the parts. We recommend that you do not try to oil or grease them.

Why are the poles sold individually?

At Decathlon, we decided to sell our hiking/backpacking poles individually. On the one hand, for usage reasons. Some people only want to use one pole. This therefore meets their needs. On the other hand, if one of your poles breaks, this means you only have to buy one and not a complete pair.

Origin

Imported

Product testing

To set our thresholds, we have measured the stresses on the poles in the most demanding situations. During the design stage, each model undergoes laboratory tests that reproduce these stresses (compression, bending in 3 places; etc.) until it breaks. We also test parts separately (tightening power, tearing, etc.). Finally, these tests are regularly repeated during production to guarantee consistent level of quality.

Storage instructions

Store the poles without tightening the adjustment system to reduce the stresses on the system and protect their tightening power. Store poles in a dry place.
