    Product feature
    1. Precautions for use
      Always check that your poles are properly tightened before departing.
    2. Technical tests for poles
      Bending and compression tests are done on extended poles to make sure they remain effective and can withstand stresses when the user has to lean on them heavily. Tests are also carried out to assess how the tightening systems cope with pulling, tightening and repeated stress, and pull tests on the tips and handles simulate poles getting stuck when in use.
    3. Directions for use
      When walking downhill, pushing hard on mountainous terrain or adventure racing, for example, people sometimes extend their poles. When hiking uphill, use the strap for support; When walking downhill, it's best to remove the strap so the pole won't get in your way if you fall.
    4. How to adjust 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. Storage advice
      Store the poles in a dry place, do not tighten the sections.
    3. Cleaning advice

    • Excellent product lived up to its expectations.

      Neil (United Kingdom)
      Used for 1 week or less
      The walking pole greatly assisted my climb up the mountain and when the going got tough it provided extra stability in the icy conditions.
      Easy to use and fulfilled its purpose.m
    • Good pole but the basket fell after the first hike

      Marion (United Kingdom)
      Used for 1 week or less
      Good pole, good hand grip, very comfortable. However the basket fell after the first hike (I had two poles, it fell on the two poles). The screwing system is not efficient enough to hold the basket for a long hike.
    • Good value

      John (United Kingdom)
      Used for 1 week or less
      My poles were a very good value for the quality of the product.

      My only trouble is after a few months of use, the locking mechanism at the top section of both poles won't engage thus not allowing the poles to be locked either extended or unextended.

      Perhaps I am doing something wrong?
    • Comfortable, straightforward

      Sarah (United Kingdom)
      Used for 1 week or less
      One of my poles wouldn't tighten once I got up the mountain, which was frustrating, but now I know there are simple YouTube videos showing how to reset this, and it can happen on all makes, I am happy.

      These feel as sturdy and straightforward as poles that cost an awful lot more. A shame they don't come with covers for the metal tips. These are sold separately, but we're out of stock when I bought the poles. It is easy enough to wrap a plastic bag round them instead, and I guess these are the small things that make the cost lower on most Decathlon products.
      Easy to use, minor shock absorption does work
      No tip covers as standard
    • No antishock feature, misguided by Decathlon

      This hiking pole has no antishock feature, the name of the pole is misleading. However strong a hiking pole is, if it is without springs for anti shock capability then it is just an expensive stick. I would refer to have a wooden stick than this in any trail.
      No Antishock feature
      Response of the brand
      Dear sir
      We are sorry to hear about this problem. This model does indeed benefit from an internal spring to help absorb shocks. Therefore we believe there are a few possible explanations. Either you have received the wrong model, or the pole is still set in the locked position where the spring will not work, or there is perhaps a defect...
      Normally a small 1/4 twist in the right direction and the spring will be released. Please don't hesitate to contact us to let us know if we can help further.
