Technical Information

1
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.
2
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, before you start and at regular intervals, check your pole's locking mechanism by pressing down hard on it. Do not attach to your backpack in stormy weather.

Care tips
Maintaining your poles properly enable you to maintain optimal function and increases 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.
5
Why sell them 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. This meets their needs. Second, because if one of your poles breaks, you can buy only one pole rather than a pair.

Test
Our field testers. In addition to these laboratory tests, Théo, our trial engineer ensures that each model also passes the test on standardised test terrains. They enable us to confirm comfort, ease of adjustment, vibrations, etc. Finally, durability is also confirmed with a durability test mission that can be up to 500 km long.

Product test
To set our thresholds, we have measured the stresses on the poles in the most demanding situations. During the design stage, each model passes laboratory tests that reproduce these stresses, etc.) until rupture. We also tests parts separately (tightening power, tearing, etc). Finally, these tests are regularly repeated during production to guarantee constant quality.

Stockage tips
Store the poles without tightening the adjustment system, to avoid stress and retain their hold power. Store poles in a dry place.
