Compact, Lightweight and Strong

I am very happy with the Black Diamond Spire Elliptic Trekking Pole.

The elliptical shape of these poles gives them strength when hacking up a steep trail on snowshoes.

Few other poles on the market are as light and sturdy.

Cheaper poles may a few seasons (or a few hikes) and then fail you. Black Diamonds are a durable good meant to last for years.

If you snowshoe, these are worth the investment.
