How it was designed...
This model is entirely designed and approved by our team, at the foot of Mont Blanc.
This model uses the chassis of the A100, which we have "reinforced" to get it ready to take on the mountains!
It retains the push-pin adjustment system and over-sized tubes. However, it can be set higher (130 cm), has an adjustable wrist strap, essential for support, an elongated foam handle for multi-position grip and a tungsten carbide tip to withstand rock.
How to adjust your poles to the correct length?
Hold the poles with your arms bent at a right angle.
To do this: - pull the lower part until the push-pin locks (lower metal button)
- slide the middle tube until the upper button reaches the desired hole
- use the lines printed on the tubes to align the push-pin with the holes
Never go over the STOP line to avoid breaking the pole.
Directions for use
This hiking pole is designed to help you balance, propel yourself and distribute effort between arms and legs.
To be on the safe side, check before you set off and at regular intervals that your baton is locked in place by simulating heavy bumps. Do not put on your backpack in case of a storm.Some users are sensitive to the whistling noise that can occur when the wind sweeps through the adjustment holes.
Proper maintenance of your baton will ensure that it functions optimally and that it lasts longer.
After use, if water has penetrated the stick, remove the strands and allow to dry. If necessary, clean the dust or mud with water or a dry brush. Once dry, you can reassemble the strands.
We recommend that you do not attempt to oil or grease the mechanisms.
Why is the pole sold individually?
At Decathlon, we have decided to sell our hiking/trekking poles individually. First because of how they are used. Indeed, some people only want to use one pole. Also, if one of your poles breaks, this means you only have to buy one and not a complete pair.
Accessories sold separately and adapted to this model
The advantage of buying Forclaz trekking poles is that you have a wide choice of compatible accessories and spare parts. So you can enjoy it for as long as possible.
