Forclaz MH500 Quick+Precise Adjustment Hiking Pole,dark olive green

Great pole for the price.

These poles performed so well that I returned another brand poles that were way, WAY, more expensive. Unless you are fanatical about shaving every gram/oz from your kit, these poles are more than enough to get you where you want to go. I’m 6’2” and they had plenty of height.

You get what you pay for

Decathlon has a great reputation for providing quality products at a great price. Unfortunately on this occasion this hasn't been the case. On my first trip out with these poles the top lock would slip when any pressure would be put on them. Second trip i gave these to my 12 year old son and the bottom lock kept slipping.

Very good with one flaw

Strong, lightweight and easy to adjust. Extended grip very useful for going uphill without adjusting length. Fast close feature is convenient, although it comes at the cost of a slightly noisier pole due to the hole for the popout button. Main gripe is the raised ridge just below the index finger on the grip. This is highly uncomfortable & seems like a major oversight. The flared ridge between the upper grip and the lower grip is fine. But the index finger ridge is an ergonomic disaster. Overall still a very good pole. Price almost unbeatable, especially when on sale. I’ve hiked many kilometres with these poles and have used them in all sorts of conditions. They are strong and reliable.

Good and affordable

Good for the price. A bit heavier but for the price, it's reasonable.

Poles for all occassions

Bought these for my wife being as my set had served me so well. Had original set for 12 months taken then on the Larapinta Trail (NT), South Coast Trail (TAS), Cradle Mountain Hikes and about every other major trail in Tasmania. Super light easy to adjust even with gloves on and pack down to compact size when not in use. Highly recommended especially for the price. Could find fault in them.

if it only folded to be a few centimetres shorter to fit in my carry on only pack it would be perfect

First time hiking poles.

New to Alberta and hiking. Looking for entry level pricing and equipment at this point. Haven’t actually used them yet. But spent some time looking at all available and the adjustable heights on this one best. No fiddling with where the little hole has to fit. It goes there automatically.

Hiking poles

I had hoped for them to be a bit lighter. You need to place a neutral category, like "maybe"

Additional Product Information


Shaft: 100.0% Aluminum ; Handle: 100.0% Polypropylene

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 aluminum for controlled weight

How to adjust your poles to the correct length

Hold the poles with your arms bent at a right angle.To adjust the length: open the outer lever, slide the tube to the desired length, and close the lever. Pull the lower part until the automatic push-pin locks.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 tips

Maintaining your poles properly enable you to maintain optimal function and increases their lifespan.After use, if water has gotten 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 sell them individually?

At Decathlon, we have decided to sell our hiking/backpacking poles individually. First because of how they are used. Indeed, some people only want to use one pole. This meets their needs.Second, because if one of your poles breaks, you can buy only 1 pole rather than a pair.

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 passes laboratory tests that reproduce these stresses; etc.) until rupture.We also tests parts separately (tightening power, tearing, etc).Finally, these tests are regularly repeated during production to guarantee constant quality.

Storage instructions

Store the poles without tightening the adjustment system, to avoid stress and retain their hold power.Store poles in a dry place.
