Excellent value

Pros: sturdy construction, light weight, easy to use, very quick to fold and unfold, easy length adjustment, very compact Cons: a little bit too long at its shortest length

Spitzen Equipment

Ich will die Stöcke nicht mehr missen; einfache Handhabung; gut verstaubar; einzig was ich vermisse, ist ein Aufbewahrungsbeutel

Hallo Ute,


vielen Dank für deine Meinung zum Wanderstock Trekking MT500.


Wir freuen uns sehr, dass du mit deinem Produkt zufrieden bist!


Als Tasche für Wanderstöcke können wir dir die Stocktasche Schultertasche Trail Running 8563468 empfehlen.


Du findest auf decathlon.de außerdem viele weitere Aufbewahrungsmöglichkeiten, die aus anderen Sportarten hierfür verwendet werden können.


Wir wünschen dir weiterhin viel Spaß beim Wandern!


Bis bald in deinem DECATHLON oder auf decathlon.de!


mit sportlichen Grüßen

Stöcke sollten als SET verkauft werden

Obwohl es in der Produktbeschreibung steht werden Stöcke normalerweise Paarweise verkauft. Ein etwas deutlicherer Hinweis hierauf wäre wünschenswert, dann muss man nicht 2x bestellen. Das ist wirklich etwas irreführend und Ansonsten fühlt sich der Stock wertig an.

Hallo Arne,


vielen Dank für deine Meinung zum Trekking Wanderstock MT500. Wir freuen uns, dass du mit deinem Produkt zufrieden bist.


Tatsächlich steht in der Beschreibung 1 Wanderstock.


Unsere Wanderstöcke werden nicht wie z.B. Nordic Walking Stöcke paarweise verkauft, da viele Sportler nur einen Stock als Unterstützung benötigen oder aufgrund der Koordination.



Bis bald und bleib gesund!


mit sportlichen Grüßen

Die Besten

Hatte schon einige Wanderstöcke, diese hier sind paar Gramm schwerer dafür aber perfekt. Schnelle Inbetriebnahme durch Klicksystem mit Voreingestellter Länge. Die robusten die ich bisher hatte.

sehr guter stock zum günstigen Preis

Handhabung einfach, passt in jeden Rucksack, ist stabil

Super Stöcke

Schön wäre hier noch eine waschbare Verpackung um sie gegebenenfalls im Rucksack sauber zu verstauen. Sonst sind die Stöcke echt top

Klasse Faltstock

Sehr gute Verarbeitung und bestes Preis Leistungs Verhältnis. Ich hoffe ich brauche nie das Konzept dass die Stöcke einzeln verkauft werden

Einer war defekt

Ersatz kam schnell. Sehr gut zu verstauen. Wird nach Hüft -op noch so zur Sicherheit verwendet .

Bastón de garantía

Cumplen con las expectativas que ofrece. Ligeros, compactos y de garantía para el apoyo sobre cualquier terreno. Recomendables.

PRACTICO Y COMODO

PODER PLEGAR EL BASTÓN PARA TRANSPORTARLO Y CUANDO NO SE TIENE QUE USAR ES IDEAL. FÁCIL DE MONTAR Y MUY LIGERO. RECOMENDABLE.

NO MERECE LA PENA

El sistema de ajuste de los dos últimos tramos es muy malo, de hecho es inexistente, se desmontan constantemente.

Hola Remedios


En primer lugar agradecerte el tiempo empleado en escribirnos tu experiencia con el prodcuto. Las opiniones de nuestros clientes son importantes para nosotros, ya que nos ayudan a mejorar nuestros productos.


Es posible que la primera interactuación con el producto sea un poco más compleja, pero en cuanto te familiarices con el sistema te va a resultar más facil abrirlo y cerrarlo. Te dejo el enlace de la web del bastón donde aparece un video explicativo de como abrirlo, para cerrarlo sería hacer lo mismo pero al revés: https://www.decathlon.es/es/p/1-baston-ultra-compacto-de-trekking-mt500-negro/_/R-p-172316?mc=8493720#zoom=opened


Si no terminas de entenderlo te sugiero que te acerques a tu tienda Decathlon más cercana para que nuestros expertos en montaña te echen una mano. Aún así si el bastón no cumple tus expectativas y tienes tarjeta Decathlon, puedes realizar el cambio o devolución de este en la tienda.


Espero haberte ayudado, un saludo

Additional Product Information

Composition

Shaft

  • 100% Aluminum

Handle

  • 100% Ethylene vinyl acetate
  • 50% Styrene ethylene butadiene styrene

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 342-mile 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 that sometimes takes you far from civilization. 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 top of the range aluminum. 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 backpacking backpack.

How did we design this handle?

We favored 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.

Tube details.

The lower tube has undergone special treatment called shot-blasting. This is a mechanical treatment to the surface that does not require anodization and is therefore less polluting. There is no effect on the pole’s resistance. It gives a granular appearance and the natural color of the aluminum remains. The (inevitable) scratches will therefore be less visible. The other four tubes are still anodized as their sliding ability requires smooth surfaces.

How to adjust your poles to the correct length?

Hold the poles with your arms bent at a right angle. 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: open the outer lever, slide the tube to the desired length and close the lever. 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. If you notice that your pole tends to slide down, the locking mechanism turn ring needs adjusting. Open the lever and tighten the turn ring by a quarter or half turn. 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 or without water using 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. Indeed, some people prefer to use just 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 three 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.
