Built for young adventurers, Black Diamond First Strike Youth trekking poles offer grown-up performance in a youth-friendly size. These lightweight, durable aluminum trekking poles offer 2-section adjustability and reliability.
The Black Diamond First Strike Trekking Poles are youth oriented poles that have all of the great quality and durable features that you would come to expect from Black Diamond, but they are really lightweight and really easy to us for your little ones.
You have durable aluminum construction on the shafts of these trekking poles. And this is just a two section pole. So you only have one lock. It makes it really easy to use. You have just got one point of adjustability here. And that is with Black Diamond FlickLocks. So the same durable, really easy to use locks that are on the adult poles.
With the FlickLocks all you have to do is flick it open with your thumb, adjust the pole to your specific height and then flick it back closed.
These poles have a wide range of adjustability. You have got at the low end 66 centimeters all the way up to 110 centimeters. In inches that translates to 26 inches all the way up to 43 inches. So these trekking poles are definitely going to grow with your child as they grow.
Up at the top you have really durable rubber grips. And these are a lot more narrow than the adult trekking poles. So they are really great for small hands. And included there is a really nicely woven strap. And this is just a webbing strap. It is really easy to adjust to different lengths just to take some strain off of the wrists as you are hiking.
Going down to the tip you have a nice safety steel tip on the bottom and this definitely has a lot of traction and a lot of bite for trails, but it is not as sharp as the adult Black Diamond trekking poles. So a really great safety feature there.
Moving up the tip you have a basket, a smaller basket on here. And this tip is threaded, so you can remove the basket and it actually does come with bigger baskets. So you can put those on. It adds a lot of value to the trekking poles. So for your winter activities you can definitely trade them in for the other baskets.
When you are out on the trail with your child, these poles are going to give you confidence that they will stay stable and safe on the trail, especially if they are carrying a heavy pack or if you are on uneven terrain. These are great poles for boy scouts or girl scouts who are going to be going out often and since they are so adjustable, they are going to grow with your child so you are going to get a lot of years out of these poles.
They are the Black Diamond First Strike.
