New for 2014! Incorporating easy-to-adjust external locks, innovative anti-shock features, extended-length grips and rugged aluminum construction, Black Diamond Trail Pro Shock trekking poles are an excellent balance of year-round performance and price.
Black Diamond's Control Shock Technology (CST) employs a unique external absorption mechanism that functions smoothly and quietly without diminishing the collapsibility of the poles. CST's progressive, 4-stage shock absorption saves wear and tear on your wrists and maximizes pole performance.
>Far easier to adjust than the internal locking mechanisms used by many telescoping poles, the sturdy FlickLock Pro external locks found on Trail Pro Shock 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.
Contoured grips serve as comfortable, confident handholds. These textured grips extend far down the upper pole sections, allowing you to adjust where you grasp the poles and eliminating the need to shorten or extend sections each time you encounter a steep slope. 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 Trail Pro Shock trekking poles offer a usable adjustment range of 27"-55" and collapse to 27" for convenient storage and transportation.
