Used this product with the wider snow basket (sold separately) in the NSW Alpine back country. It did it's job and held up well. Would recommend it if you are going snowshoeing.
The trek pole broke within 10 hours of use. While coming downhill.
Thank you for sharing your feedback with us. We are extremely sorry to hear about your unpleasant experience during the Trek. I would like to inform you that your safety remains at the core of everything we do at Decathlon. I am attaching a video link to the various tests we conduct to guarantee our users comfort and safety. Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AYw_LvxwnU4Here are my tips on using the right height for the right surface which could be one of the reasons for this incident: When you are at the Flat surface, adjust the height of the pole so that your arms are at 90-degree position holding the pole. From this height, decrease the height of 5-10 cm while ascending, and increase 5-10 cm from the flat surface height while you are walking downhill. Trekking poles provide additional support by reduces the impact on your knees, by distributing the weight of your backpack and also providing support from falling down but it is always advised to rely on your foot to test the ground and then use the pole to propel along. I hope this information helps.
Also the poles, you have picked are not recommended for treks of longer duration, I would request you kindly to let me know your usage which will allow me to suggest the best ones for your usage. I stay available if you need any further assistance with our products
Does the pole come with a protective cap
Serves the purpose. feels will give a good run.
Perfect product for trekking
The pole somehow got bend in the last potion and now it is in unfolded condition... I faced this situation in the mid of my trek.. so it was not a good experience with this product for me.
I got the the pole in pink and took it through some muddy hikes in Hawaii. Worked fine, looked great, can't beat the price, and perfect for an occasional pole user like me. However, I noticed it was a bit loose from the sound it makes with every step. I was in store today and tried another one and it did not seem/sound loose. Disappointed as they don't stock in my colour anymore and can't exchange.
I would recommend this for an occasional user but do try a few out as they might be different in quality.
I had read on a blog that a walking stick reduces upto 40% of energy while trekking. This particular one was a saviour to that purpose. Easy to handle, and sturdy enough to support me on my 1st snow trek while ascending, descending and on snow.
Used these for the first time this weekend. Worked well whilst out but on return I couldn't get one to retract again as the button seemed stick. Eventually managed to push the button in but it went too far and is now stuck inside the inner pole which renders the pole useless. Can't recommend when things go wrong after one use.
