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

Very good product with quick and easy adjustment to user height .I should have bought the rubber tips !

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

Awesome Hiking Pole

This pole saved my life! Love the extra loop on the front for the index finger. I learned how to use this hiking pole in many different techniques to get me through some difficult inclines and declines. I would not hike without it now.

poles collapse under load

Two poles I bought collapsed on the very first descent of the first hike I used them on. The locks on both were not tight enough, never had this issue using similar closing mechanism in my other poles. my weight is 90kg so maybe for someone smaller these poles will be enough. The quality and materials are good, but they don't do the job they were designed to do and I ended up with sore knees, so would not recommend.

Hi, thanks for taking the time review our Mh500 Mountain Walking Pole.

I'm sorry to hear that you had a problem with these poles collapsing under pressure. I just want to check one thing, there is a mechanism to make the locking system tighter, I'm not sure if you are aware. Perhaps if you made this tighter, then the poles would be more secure and this might hopefully solve your problem. I hope that this helps!

Thanks again for your time.

Absolute con

The price is for 1 pole, but in the picture it looks like several. Ridiculously overpriced. False advertising

Great product

What a difference these poles make! Great quality and easy to adjust.

Additional Product Information



  • 100% Aluminum


  • 100% 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 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 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.



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.
