How it was designed...
Fully designed and validated by our team.
This model uses the chassis of the A200. It retains the push-pin adjustment system and over-sized tubes.
Why do we offer this grip that is held from above? We have noticed that the standard grip does not suit everyone, particularly for long periods. We therefore designed this pole slightly differently so that you do not have to bend your wrist and can spread the force more evenly in the arm as it is aligned with the pole.
How to adjust your poles to the correct length?
The adjustment is not the same as for a conventional pole: the arm along the body must be almost straight or slightly bent. It is therefore shorter than a conventional pole.
To adjust the length: press the button to release it from the hole, slide the tube until the button reaches the hole at the desired length. Use the line printed on the lower tube to align the button with the holes.
Never go over the STOP line to avoid breaking the pole.
Directions for use
These hiking poles are designed to help you balance, propel yourself and spread the effort between the arms and legs.
To increase safety, check your pole's locking mechanism by pressing down hard on it before you start and at regular intervals.
Do not attach to your backpack in stormy weather.
Maintaining your poles properly enables you to maintain optimal function and increase their lifespan.
After use, if water has got into the pole, take the parts apart and allow to dry. Clean any dust and mud with water or without, with a soft brush or paintbrush.
Once dry, you can reassemble the parts. We recommend that you do not try to oil or grease them.
Why are the poles sold individually?
At Decathlon, we decided to sell our hiking/trekking poles individually. On the one hand, for usage reasons. Some people only want to use one pole. This therefore meets their needs.
On the other hand, if one of your poles breaks, this means you only have to buy one and not a complete pair.
