    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 section beneath the ring of the lower section, adjust to desired height (in cm), and screw back on firmly but not too tight; 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. When walking downhill, or during strong pushes in the mountains, for example, you can adjust and lengthen the poles. 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.

      Used for 2 to 8 weeks
      Easy to handle and shock absorber.

      Douglas (United Kingdom)
      Used for 2 to 8 weeks
      Poles took a little getting used too, loosing the bottom section in bushes etc as I'd not tightened them enough (my fault) Anti-shock worked a treat and cannot slate them, but however one of the titanium tip came out and the pole was worn down and will be returned as that should never have happened!
    • Great innovative products!

      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.
