The trekking pole Forclaz 500 is good, lightweight and sturdy built. It has a good grip and easy to adjust the height. This does not come with a tip cover and is therefore not convenient to carry along while traveling.
This hiking pole helped me a lot to complete my trek.
Its hold on different terrain is great and it never slipped from any terrain.
I tested this on rocky terrain, on mud and even on snow and it never disappointed my expectations.
Not worth compare to price.
very useful ..keeps you safe especially downhill
My earlier trekking pole ( a non branded Chinese good ) lasted for three years before the screwing mechanism gave in. So I thought I will upgrade to bit higher model and so I bought Forclaz 500 Light blue. I mostly use the pole on summit days/ pass crossing days in snow. So on my second trek after the pass crossing I had to navigate an incline for considerable time in snow and boulders. That's when the pole bent across its bottom two halves while walking on boulders ( mind you I didn't place it between the boulders ). Now it's a struggle to completely close/open it. I didn't expect it to bend on my second trek. Anyway, my non branded one lasted on far severe treks (>6000m) and for far longer (3 years) without a bend. Don't expect upgradation from the basic one when buying forclaz 500

Good product, very useful and supportive when hiking , its add as a good support and makes hiking easy.
The cover/cap at the end of the pole was missing. Didn't realize while purchasing. It's very inconvenient to carry it.
It is what it says and functionally very useful. However after my first trek the lowest bar broke by getting slightly stuck on the path. I was very surprised because it survived worse terrain. I have no clue how can that happen but feeling really sad because I paid extra for this model over the basic one. My recommendation - please go for the basic model or take a bamboo stick and save your money
Light weight, good grip
Not overtightened, but sometimes I can’t adjust until I unlock it at home
