Maintain your MT500 hiking pole

Your hiking poles must be maintained from time to time in order to make them last longer and maintain their effectiveness.

Pole maintenance mainly involves keeping them clean! Remember to clean them properly on the outside as well as on the inside. Check out the process on the page below.

When you are not using your poles, fold them up and leave the blockers untightened in order to preserve clamping power.

Recycle your MT500 hiking pole

You have no other option than to throw away your poles? Get into the habit of not putting them in the household or recycling waste and go to a recycling centre so that they can be repurposed. Because they are mainly made of aluminium, the pole will go into the metal section, while the baskets will go into the plastic section.
