Delivering top-of-the-mountain performance at an affordable price, Black Diamond Alpine Ergo Cork trekking poles are lightweight, sturdy and easy-to-use.
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.

- Great! Its easily adjustable and the adjustment clips gives a lower profile.
Likes: Ergo gives it an angle that makes it easier for movement and wrist.
Low profile adjustment clips that gives less prone to snags.
Dislikes: Cork is easily damaged (already chipped mine but still happy).
Longer collapsed length due to the ergo handles.
I dont know if its something to mention but compared to a buddies carbon poles mine seemed to reverberate a lot upon ground impact.
- 250 miles later and still amazing!
Likes: Very tough. I use them on daily 2 mile work-outs, .7 miles, 1000 ft. ascent. Absolutely no problems. Handles work great at absorbing the sweat and provide great grip.
Dislikes: The wrist straps are a bit oversized and don't tighten down to my smaller size.
Likes: I've put some steep mileage on these poles and so far, so good! They are a cinch to adjust and the cork is fantastic compared to my old rubber grips (dry quicker and much more comfortable for my sweaty hands). I'm coming off a knee injury so I put a lot of weight into these when descending -- they have been sturdy, reliable, and a lifesaver on the knee.
Dislikes: The bottom latches don't want to close when the poles are collapsed. Seems minor but it concerns me that one wrong move in storage or when strapped to my pack could break the latch.
Likes: I used these trekking poles on a section hike of the A.T. in New York. Very easy to adjust,helpful on ascents,descents and on rocky terrain.They seem to be made very sturdy and the cork hand grips dry very fast.
Dislikes: I have no dislikes at this time.
