    Product feature
    1. How to adjust your walking poles?
      Hold the poles with your arms bent at a right angle. To adjust them: Unscrew the middle strand, underneath the ring of the lower strand, locate the size of the desired stick (in centimetres), and screw back firmly but do not overtighten; repeat with the lower section. NEVER GO OVER THE "STOP LINE", or the pole may break during use.
    2. Directions for use
      Before leaving: always check that your poles are well tightened. The poles can be lengthened for example, for descents, or for a hard push up the mountain . When walking downhill, it's best to remove the strap so the pole doesn't get in your way if you fall.
    3. Accessories
      Comes with a summer hiking (small diameter) unscrewable basket. Compatible with wider winter baskets.

      How to activate/deactivate antishock spring mechanism??
      Response of the brand
      Hello 
      Thank you for your review  of the Forclaz 500 anti-shock pole. To engage or disengage the spring you need to twist the pole in the direction of the lock and unlock symbol on the pole itself (once the pole has been secured). If this isn't clear please pop into your local Decathlon where one of our trekking experts will be at hand to show you, otherwise please get in touch and i will be able to talk you through it step by step.

      I have just used this in a trek and the antishock is completely broken and the graphite tip is completely gone.

      This completely a damaged product.
      Response of the brand
      Hello Soumya,

      We are sorry to hear that the poles did not serve you long for your trek. This is quite abnormal as we put through several test to ensure the strength and the Durability of our poles before suggesting to our users. This could have happened due to a defect in the pole, so it would be great if you can bring it to our stores so that the team could check and understand the issue to help you better.

      Please write back back to me in case you have any further queries:)

    • Gripping

      everything about this product is nice but if you come to the gripping part it makes it more unique than other product. I had tried other hiking pole and faced one problem that is with gripping i.e holding too long makes your hand sweety which irritates to use the pole. the fabric of this gripping is very comfortable which gives a good grip on it.
