Great walking aid

Although I haven't tried it out on steeper rocky terrain than my usual uphill downhill bushwalk it has proven to be a useful aid.

DisABILITY aid

Im a wheelchair user with MS and initially purchased the poles to aid in transfer to my kayak. I’ve found them so stable however I’ve packed away my crutches and these fold down and are stored on the back of my chair for access in tight spots. They force me to engage my core more than rely on solely on weigh baring on hip and leg which are problem areas. I’m thrilled I can use them for more than what I originally intended and that they provide added safety around the home and in community.

Feet aren't great

Quite good sticks but the feet wore through on the first day, maybe not great for sandy clay / sandstone walking.

The handle makes a huge difference. I love it.

replacement

my original sticks were stolen and as i had been pleased with them i purchased more of the same

Excellent

An excellent stick which was very reasonably priced. I use this as a walking stick rather than a walking pole.

Good budget

God enough for casual walker but not serious walker as bit to light and not adjustable enough.

Whistles while you walk

Do you see the little hole in the handle of this stick, in the photo? If there's a bit of wind, the air will pass through and give a distinct whistle, disturbing a quiet hike along a mountain trail. Maybe you won't notice the sound if you're walking on a city street, but it'll definitely be annoying on an Alp or a country walk. This product looked nice on the drawing table, but nobody tested it in the field before bringing it to market.

Great walking pole

Great

Sturdy enough!

Great quality better than expected!

Good for the money

Put tape over the holes to avoid wind sound

Extra Ferule

This is a very handy walking pole but it’s a shame the rubber ferule at the bottom end of the stick isn’t more sturdy - or that a spare one isn’t provided.

icon-circle-checkmark verified purchase
Length very short

The length is only 110 cm very short as compared to other poles it should be atleast 130 cm im stuck with it as i purchased it 3 weeks early and didnt check the length

Additional Product Information

Composition

Shaft

  • 100% Aluminum

Handle

  • 90% Polypropylene
  • 10% Styrene ethylene butadiene styrene

How it was designed...

Fully designed and validated by our team. This model uses the chassis of the A200. It retains the push-pin adjustment system and oversized tubes. Why do we offer this grip that is held from above? We have noticed that the standard grip does not suit everyone, particularly for long periods. We therefore designed this pole slightly differently so that you do not have to bend your wrist and can spread the force more evenly in the arm as it is aligned with the pole.

How to adjust your poles to the correct length?

The adjustment is not the same as for a conventional pole: the arm along the body must be almost straight or slightly bent. It is therefore shorter than a conventional pole. To adjust the length: press the button to release it from the hole, slide the tube until the button reaches the hole at the desired length. Use the line printed on the lower tube to align the button with the holes. 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.
