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.

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.

Additional Product Information

Composition

Shaft

  • 100% Aluminum

Handle

  • 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 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.
