Shockingly good.

The wonderful thing about the Black Diamond Trail Shock Trekking Poles is that they're wonderful things; their shafts are made of aluminum, and their shock-absorbers are made out of springs. Well, not technically springs, but they do have a 4-stage Control Shock dampening system that softens the impact of a hard trek over rough ground. There's built-in rebound control so you don't bounce like a Tigger when you unweight your poles, and a Double FlickLock Pro one-handed aluminum extension system that's strong, light, and low-profile. Your hands and wrists will appreciate the Trail Pro as much as your knees will, since they're built with a dual-density ergonomic grip, padded strap, and foam grip extension that's perfect for super-steep going, switchbacks, and using your poles as swords to fight off bees when you're trying to steal their hunny.

Great for hiking and pretend swordfights

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Comfy grips and strap: Check
Functional shock absorption: Check
Awesome Flick-lock PRO: Check
Interchangeable tips and baskets: Check

Not only are these trekking poles the bee's knees but they will also save your knees!.... (I'll show myself out)

The grips are comfortable and absorb sweat fairly well (after a few miles my hands get a little irritated but I just adjust my grasp and they're fine). The strap provides ample support without being overwhelming, nor does it dig into your wrist. The foam section below the shock absorber allows you to "choke up" for uphill ascents as well as across-grade travel.

The shock absorption is great, but not mushy enough that you notice it with each plant. It's easy to forget it's there, but the lack of aches will remind you they're working just fine.

FlickLock PRO is *super* secure and also very easy to adjust; even while hiking.

The carbide tips are bomber and I've never had an issue of them sliding out from under me, even while planting them on rocks.

They are also strong enough that you can use them for pretend sword fights, but please cover the tips with the Trekking Pole Tip Protectors.

Likelihood of poking an eye out: Moderate to extreme

Trail comfort just got better

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I primarily use trekking poles for backpacking. These particular poles proved perfect for the Highline trail. During this trail you go over 9 passes in which you gain and loose 2000-3000 feet each. The poles saved my knees, and the shocks worked great for the descents with a 45 pound pack. I hope to get a tent that uses trekking poles to cut down on that weight!

Comfortable and keeps on going

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I take these poles on almost every hike I do. They are comfortable in the hands and the shock absorbing eases impact on the wrists. These are also tough poles. I've taken them off trail through skree, rocky trails, I've accidentally wedged them in the cracks of rocks, and nothing has touched them. They are pretty much in the condition they were in when I bought them. I plan on putting many more miles on these poles.
