    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.

    Great collapsible pole.

      I've only put about 50-60 miles on these poles but I have pretty positive feelings about them at this point. Fairly light for what they are, plenty of adjustment range for different applications or user heights and the small shock at the top is great for downhills with a heavy pack. The only issue i personally found was is the clasps are fairly easy to accidentally open.

      Hike til you're old.

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

      Bought for my parents so they can continue their love of hiking without the inevitable pain that happens in their knees as they age. My dad goes backpacking at least once a year and my mom tries to get out once a month. They love the extra support!

      Almost as good as having 4 legs

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Love the trekking poles! Use them every time I hit the hills (except for running) and have put hundreds of miles. They are only a few ounces heavier than carbon fiber and the shock absorbing feature is fantastic. I notice a difference when I use poles without shock absorbers. Would definitely recommend and buy again, though not sure I will need to. The wrist straps do get kinda gross but I just hand wash them in a bucket and they're good to go again.

      Left handle started clicking at about 15 miles, right started clicking about 100 miles later. Annoying. So far I haven't figured out how to get the straps off to wash them so they're getting pretty funky. They do the job they're supposed to do, they just do it in an annoying way. Won't be buying these next time.

      Great Trekkers

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I bought these poles for hiking 14ers and have not been let down. My girlfriend had the female version of these and I was jealous enough that I had to get the male version. Very durable, mechanisms seem to be quite reliable, the grips are comfortable.

      I believe you can screwoff the baskets and replace them with something a little more substantial for snow. I will be testing this out later this Fall.

      Great for the knees

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      One month after physical therapy for tendonitis in my knee, my brother and I did a tough 100 mile stretch of the AT. Mostly downhill by the end, brother was having knee pain, but with these poles I was only getting faster and stronger. I will not backpack again without these poles. . .

      The savior of my knees

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Great trekking poles, I did use them couple of times 24 miles total and what a difference for my knees, they are very helpful uphill and amazing downhill, they are strong and the shock system is a big plus.

      Highly recommended.

      The savior of my knees

      Your wrists will thank you.

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

      I just got these trekking poles today and took them from a test hike. I love these already.
      First of all, my favorite thing about them so far has to be the grip. I can't really explain the texture, but I'm used to rubber grips and those gave me blisters. They absorb sweat very well and never become slippery. The wrist straps also provide great stability once you dial them in to your liking.
      The flick locks are awesome and I feel like they will hold for a very, very long time. And lastly, the anti-shock built into the grip is the icing on the cake. When I'm gripping something for a long period of time, my hands tend to get sore and stiff and I feel like these poles will lessen the soreness and tension in my hands and wrists after a long days hike.

      Great Birthday Gift for Mom

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

      So my mom is getting older and so steeper hikes without assistance are hard on her. With these trekking poles she does fantastic.! Also with the shocks absorbing a lot of the impact it is not hard on her hands. I recommend them for any outdoorsy mom that is needs a little more help.

      Expensive but well worth the money

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      These are strong poles and they are aluminum. Consequently, they weigh slightly more than some other trekking poles, but I personally didn't notice any drawbacks to the few added ounces and like having the extra sturdiness.
      The hand grips (and choke grip sections) are made of a synthetic material that has a felt-like texture. This provides good grip and should remain grippy even when wet with sweat or water. I haven't tried the poles in warm weather yet but I anticipate that they will remain comfortable and provide good grip as the temperatures increase in the summer.
      The straps are very comfortable and easy to adjust but could use a little extra length. I adjusted them to their maximum and was just able to insert my heavy winter gloves through the openings. It could be challenging to do this with really heavy shelled mittens.
      The unique anti-shock dampers are located just under the hand grips and provide adequate shock absorbing without the sometimes annoying excessive pogo stick spring actions found in other poles.
      There's a padded gripping section just below the shock dampers that allows you to choke up on the poles during short steep trail assents without needing to shorten up on the pole lengths - a very convenient feature.
      The tips are convertible, from carbide to soft, by simply unscrewing the carbide tip and replacing it with screw-in soft tips (not included). Although this would work, the screw-in rubber tips are of very small diameter and won't grip rock as well as Black Diamond's conventional external rubber tip covers, which are coated with knobby protrusions that give excellent traction on rock. These tips are inexpensive and easily replaced if lost or just worn out, and they fit perfectly on Black Diamond poles. Still, it?s nice to have that replaceable tip feature in the event that you wear out the original carbide ones.
      The best feature is the adjusting clamp - 2 per pole. No more twist-to-lock mechanisms that eventually slip. These are lever action clamps that make it very easy and quick to do pole adjustments yet hold firmly even in heavy use. Unlike twist locks, these levers can be manipulated with heavy gloves on and won't slip in your hands or jam up.
      The bottom ice baskets are really too small in diameter to be effective. Fortunately they are removable and can be taken off in the summer and replaced with proper sized baskets in the winter. However, they do look cute on the poles, if that matters to you.
      Overall, these are very well-made trekking poles with an excellent design and useful features. At first I did have some initial reservations about paying so much for a set of poles, but now feel that they are worth the extra cost.

      Amazing Trekking Poles!!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I just made my second order of this poles the first one I just give them to a friend in Peru and I've been using these poles for a while now and the shocks does a great job and help both the uphill and downhill scenarios. For now the best pole I ever used.

      Amazing Trekking Poles!!

      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!
