Technical Information

How to adjust your walking poles?
Hold the poles with your arms bent at a right angle. To adjust them: Unscrew the middle strand, underneath the ring of the lower strand, locate the size of the desired stick (in centimetres), and screw back firmly but do not overtighten, repeat with the lower section. NEVER GO OVER THE "STOP LINE", or the pole may break during use.
2
Directions for use
Before leaving: always check that your poles are well tightened. The poles can be lengthened for example, for descents, or for a hard push up the mountain . When walking downhill, it's best to remove the strap so the pole doesn't get in your way if you fall.

Accessories
Comes with a summer hiking (small diameter) unscrewable basket. Compatible with wider winter baskets.

Composition
Shaft : 100.0% Aluminium Handle : 100.0% Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA)

Test
All our poles undergo use tests carried out by users who represent the target market in similar conditions to those found in typical use. In particular, our Field Test Missions team up our product managers with people not affiliated with QUECHUA to test, improve and validate our products.

Product test
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.

Stockage tips
Store the poles in a dry place, without tightening the sections.

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.

I have just used this in a trek and the antishock is completely broken and the graphite tip is completely gone.

This completely a damaged product.
Response of the brand
Hello Soumya,

We are sorry to hear that the poles did not serve you long for your trek. This is quite abnormal as we put through several test to ensure the strength and the Durability of our poles before suggesting to our users. This could have happened due to a defect in the pole, so it would be great if you can bring it to our stores so that the team could check and understand the issue to help you better.

Please write back back to me in case you have any further queries:)

everything about this product is nice but if you come to the gripping part it makes it more unique than other product. I had tried other hiking pole and faced one problem that is with gripping i.e holding too long makes your hand sweety which irritates to use the pole. the fabric of this gripping is very comfortable which gives a good grip on it.

Used for More than 1 year
On all the hikes and treks it is just difficult to keep moving without any strains, we all look for some sort of support, may be from a stick or something, and then just wanted to have a permanent stick so what is better than this stick which is adjustable in its size and easy to carry on every hike and trek.

I personally feel that every hiker must have this with him or her.
Anti shock works well ..
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Used it in Chadar Trek, Very useful worked very well I loved it antishock property. However, its opening and closing froze a few time due to ice.
Antishock no ,more.....
Used for 1 week or less
Bought 4 nos. I tested the poles for the antishock feature before purchasing them. Brought them out the next day for a hike, the antishock feature for 2 stopped working (i.e. the spring function doesn't work, the poles are like fixed/rigid poles now) 10-15min into the hike. I was expecting the poles to function as spec longer than the 10-15min usage....Could have saved the money to buy the lighter non-antishock poles.

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.
Wrong Winter Washer thread direction.
Used for 1 week or less
Check the thread for the winter washer, it is upside down.
