Solid Performance By Black Diamond

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These poles have been around for some time now and we have been abusing them for years with no issues. So far we have purchased about 4 sets between our group and never had any issues (even when storing them in checked bags on airlines). The carbon has held up well for us and maintained its dependability in any environment. The newest version (white color) did change some minor things about the grips which I was not a huge fan of compared to the old but I still feel that these puppies deserve 5 out of 5 stars. They are lightweight, dependable, durable, and extremely comfortable. I love the cork grip and have yet to find anyone who didn't like these poles. The price is a bit steep but if you wait long enough, you can most certainly catch them 25% off as we have several times.

How much flex/give does this have? Any comparison to aluminum poles?

It will be a bit more durable/stiffer and lighter over an aluminum pole.

    Light & rugged - perfect for long treks

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I just finished a 50 mile track in the Olympic national park These trekking poles are awesome. In the beginning the handles feel a little weird because they do not have the traditional form hand holds. However, after the first mile they started feeling amazing. Used them to keep balance while fording and keeping my footing while crossing perilous cliffs. I absolutely love them.

    They were a definite upgrade from my previous garbage Komperdell that broke after my first mile of use.

    Great poles!

    If you want better poles than these, you're gonna have to go to gossomer gear outta Austin. These are super light and sturdy poles.

    great pair of poles

      Very sturdy and reliable

      Great sticks but has some issues

        I would have given a 5 rating except for the issue described below. Just finished a 480 mile hike with these sticks and loved them except for one problem. The plastic cover on one of FlipLocks broke off on one of the adjust mechanisms. Normally not a problem but this exposed some sharp edges on the FlipLock that when carrying on my Osprey pack would catch on the fabric of pack side pouches. Nothing happened but it concerns me that it could rip the mesh on the pack. The picture shows the normal adjustment mechanism and the one where the cover broke off.

        Carbon Trek Pole

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Very light and easy to use. Each pole weighs 8.3 oz. For carbon would expect a little lighter pole. the Cork is great for soaking up the sweaty heads;.

        Freaking Light!!!

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        These poles have been with me for a few seasons now and I am just now replacing them!! They are light and are trifoldable. The cork handle really gives them a good feel and at the end of the worth every penny.

        My second pair and still my favorite.

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        These poles are the best trekking poles i've ever had. used my first pair extensively until they broke when I fell on a steep hike and braced myself with the pole.. My first pair traveled about 500 solid, backpacking/hiking miles. I used them weekly in the mountains of utah and backpacked with them on the JMT, Tetons, Grand Canyon and several other spots. I love the cork grips. My hands never sweat. I also love the adjustment buckles for the sizing system. They are great if you use a tent that requires your trekking poles, which I do. Awesome product.

        Great poles

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Not much more needs to be said. Light, easy to adjust, sturdy. They make the hike noticeably more efficient. Don’t leave without them.

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        They say, "don't look a gift horse in the mouth," but here I go... These poles are sturdy, lightweight, and collapsible. I've used them hiking, scrambling, and climbing. At two feet long and half a pound, I almost always bring at least one along (e.g., one pairs well with an ice axe for traversing uneven snow/ice). The FlickLock need a little fine tuning to dial in the tension but have proven durable. These poles are fairly pricy when compared with some other options, but you get what you pay for!

        Current price of $127.46 is for two trekking poles?

        Yes, that will be for two poles

        Do these come with the new "FlickLock Pro" or the older plastic "FlickLock" version?

        Best Answer

        Hey, Bogdan, they come with the new FlickLock Pro metal system. If you have any more questions about these poles or any other product, feel free to reach out to a gearhead.
