    Hiking can be rough on your joints whether it's your first time on steep trails or your second time hiking the AT. Black Diamond designed its Trail Ergo Cork Trekking Pole to give you the support you need to cover miles without sore knees. Its aluminum shaft makes the entire pole incredibly lightweight so you barely notice the additional weight. Its cork grip wicks moisture away from your sweaty palms, and Black Diamond set the grip at a 15° angle in order to reduce swing motion from your wrist in order to provide a more positive plant. The 360° padded webbing strap makes each pole specific to your left and right hands for easy access and extra comfort. Its FlickLock clamps let you adjust the length with ease for easy transport, and you can switch out the Tech Tips with rubber or carbide tips depending on the terrain you're trekking.

    What I Expected and Hoped For!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I am 61 years old, have mild arthritis in both knees and just got back into hiking last year. I had purchased a cheapo pair of poles to hike the lava flows in Volcanoes National Park in Hawaii and they saved my bacon several times on that trip. Upon return I began researching poles and found these. The ergo design, cork handles, and strong aluminum poles sold me on them. I am currently training to hike the Kalalau Trail on Kauai later this year and several others on the islands, expecting to log about 80 miles while there. Since March 1 I have logged over 110 trail miles on similar terrain averaging 9 miles and 2200' of elevation change. The poles are like an extra pair of legs, helping to stabilize me on uneven trails, creek crossings, and over rocky terrain. Where I have really noticed their help is on steep downhill slopes and trails. I was having real knee trouble but the poles have allowed my muscle groups which support knee strength to catch up and do their job better. Another thing I like is how the cork "breaths" very well. I sweat a lot and have yet to wear a blister on my hands, and most likely will not. Now it's just a habit to take my poles when I go out, even on flat land. You never know if you may need them for something else!

    I'm in love.

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Most of my (younger) life was spent with one of two homemade hiking sticks or, most often, nothing at all. I used these new sticks on a 7 mile, 2700' gain romp on an out and back on in rocky SoCal terrain. Truly the best hiking day yet on my knees. The cork handles are key to absorbing moisture and resulted in zero chafing and not blisters.

    Mother Approved

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    I bought these for my mom as a Christmas gift. She had wanted a set of hiking poles for the trails back east she uses to walk the dog in the winter. She has had only positive things to say. She's taken them snow shoeing and has also picked up the rubber caps for any extended walks on really hard pack/pavement when the snow melts this spring. I got her a pair of BD's because I have put my pair of poles through 1000's of miles and they have held up flawlessly. BD also makes all the accessory parts one would need for various issues like a broken tip, powder baskets etc..

    Happy Trails....

    Fantastic poles

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've had my pair of Trail Ergo Cork trekking poles for over 5 years, and they haven't had a problem yet. The locks work perfectly and I haven't taken the time to care for them at all. The cork has chipped a bit in a few very tiny places but I do not notice it while using. I consider these a benchmark design.

    Solid and Simple

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Similar to other reviewers, I think these poles are excellent. Standard BD quality throughout, and the fliplocks are proven reliable technology. They are easy to adjust to any length possibly needed, which I like (longer for going uphill). The cork grips are a nice touch for some comfort and the ergonomic bent is easy on the wrists. They also pair nicely with my Sierra Designs Tensegrity tent.

    I expect them to be my go to trekkers for years to come.

    Basic but basically awesome

    Locks that don't slip, lightweight and the cork is great! My only gripe is the adjustable wrist straps aren't removable for when they wear out. Hopefully that won't be any time soon.



    Also the matte finish feels like it'll stand up to almost anything...

    Basic but basically awesome

    Great poles!

      These poles are great! Super lightwight, but they have a nice and sturdy feeling to them. The locks are easy to open to extend the poles. Also, I am happy I got the cork ones. Much better grip, and soaks up sweaty palms much better than the plastic and foam ones. Can't wait to try these out. I do wish they would sell these with the rubber tips though.

      Can women use these poles or are they specifically for men? I cannot find any mention in the description. Thanks!
