New for 2013! Black Diamond Alpine Ergo Cork trekking poles employ lightweight construction, sturdy, easy-to-adjust external locks and ergonomic cork grips. This combination of features delivers top-of-the-mountain performance at an affordable price.
Far easier to adjust than the internal locking mechanisms used by many telescoping poles, the sturdy FlickLock Pro external locks found on Alpine Ergo Cork trekking poles are ideal for use in all conditions and seasons. Black Diamond's FlickLock system couldn't be much simpler. Even if you're wearing gloves, it's a cinch to open the lock with a flip of your finger, slide the pole section to the required length and tap the lock back into place.
Ergonomic cork grips provide contoured and comfortable handholds and additional lengths of foam padding extend far down the upper pole sections, allowing you to adjust where you grasp the Alpine Ergo Cork poles without having to shorten or extend the poles each time you encounter a steep slope or side hill traverse. Padded, adjustable webbing straps help to reduce stress on your wrists.
Press-fit Flex Tech Tips have integrated low-profile trekking baskets that provide backcountry traction. The WaveLock construction of the Flex Tech Tips allows you to choose between interchangeable carbide and rubber tip (sold separately) ends for optimal performance on varying terrain.
Sold in pairs, Black Diamond Alpine Ergo Cork trekking poles offer a usable adjustment range of 39"-51” and together weigh just 20 ounces.
