Questions & Answers

Look for product information, frequently asked questions, opinions...

Question:

Please provide instructions on mounting brackets on pole tips. I bought a pair of the poles but brackets were not mounted on the pole tips.

Answer:

Please specify the question for us to help you better. The baskets are attached to our poles by screwing/snapping them.

Question:

Are these poles shock absobing?

Answer:

This hiking pole is designed to help you balance, propel yourself and distribute effort between arms and legs. 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.

Very good quality

Noisy sticks

The automatic extension system has some play and each time the stick is placed on the ground it makes noise. After a few hours of walking, this noise becomes annoying for all walkers.

Very good but need a right left version

The stick itself is very good, no complaints. On the other hand it would be really good to have a right/left version, or to make the lever to change the length pivotable. In fact it is turned towards the left side, and so when walking I often get caught in my right thigh.

Additional Product Information

Composition

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

How it was designed...

This model is entirely designed and approved by our team, at the foot of Mont Blanc.The starting point of our design is the external locking mechanism for precise and fast adjustment. Combined with a push-pin that unfolds and folds automatically. Then we designed a handle that allows multiple grips: along the tube for climbs and banking terrain, with the wrist-strap for efficient pushing and on the knob for descents.Then we use our best 7075-T6 aluminium for controlled weight

How to adjust your poles to the correct length?

Hold the poles with your arms bent at a right angle. To do this: -pull the bottom strand all the way out until the auto push-pin (metal button) locks - open the lever of the external blocker - slide the tube to the desired length - close the lever Never exceed the STOP line to avoid the risk of 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. 8577675 or 8755646 (if new screwable version)Replacement ring: ref. 8642201Replacement stopper: ref. 8642202Lower section MT500: ref. 8642205

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.
