Product feature
  1. How to adjust your poles?
    Hold the poles with your arms bent at a right angle. To adjust: unscrew the middle section, under the ring on the lower section, adjust to desired height (in centimetres), and screw back on securely, but not too tight; then do the same with the lower section. NEVER GO OVER THE STOP LINE or the pole may snap during use.
  2. Directions for use
    Before heading off: always check that your poles are properly tightened. On downward slopes, or during strong pushes in the mountains, for example, you can adjust your poles to make them longer. When walking uphill, you can use the wrist strap for support, but when walking downhill, it's better to remove the strap so that the pole won't get it your way if you fall.
  3. Accessories
    Comes with a removable summer hiking (small diameter) basket. Compatible with wider, winter baskets.

  • Bought poles for GR20

    03/09/2018
    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!
  • Spring mechanism

    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. 
    Regards

  • Not able to tighten - should it have springs?

    Used for 1 week or less
    My parents-in-law bought two poles for me as a Christmas gift but they do not tighten at all - they unscrew but the sections come apart - should they have springs in as mine do not.
