Black Diamond Trail Ergo Cork trekking poles offer innovative features rarely found on poles sold at this price. Easy-to-adjust external locks, ergonomic cork grips and aluminum construction combine to make Trail Ergo Cork trekking poles a great value.

Far easier to adjust than the internal locking mechanisms used by many telescoping poles, the external locks found on Trail 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. Once you've used FlickLocks, you'll wonder why anyone would ever want to wrestle with temperamental internal mechanisms.

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 Trail Ergo Cork poles without having to shorten or extend the poles 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 Ergo Cork trekking poles offer a usable adjustment range of 29"-55" and together weigh 17 ounces.

  • Ergonomically-angled grip with natural cork

Durable with great features
Reviewed by James W. - November 2, 2018

Likes: Pack well, great cork handles, and light weight for the durability

Dislikes: N/a

excellent poles
Reviewed by Christopher S. - August 8, 2018

Likes: easy to adjust cork handles and very sturdy design.

Dislikes: none

Ah!! Balance
Reviewed by Daniel D. - May 13, 2018

Likes: I have never used poles for trekking before, but is makes sense. I use them for backcountry skiing, so why not?!!

Super light. Great poles. The locks are solid. I feel more balanced on difficult terrain, and feel more stabile working my way downhill on trails or off trail.

Dislikes: I may dislike one of the things I like if that makes sense; the lightness makes me feel like they will bend or break. They feel almost flimsy at times when they vibrate during use; but I suspect this is normal for these poles and I have little to worry about. If anything happens, will update review. If I don't then they performed well.

Solid basic poles
Reviewed by Travis H. - July 2, 2016

Likes: Handles were rough at first, but broke in after a couple of miles. After that they worked great. They obviously aren't the lightest, but i wouldn't call them heavy either. So far durability has not been an issue at all.

Dislikes: Top of the handle isn't great of you like to plam your poles,

Likes: Everything. Easy to adjust.

Dislikes: nothing.

Reviewed by Nathan G. - December 30, 2014

Likes: Perfect weight and size for a bigger guy (6'3" 245lbs). I got these because I was afraid that any of the carbon poles would be too weak if I were to accidentally put more weight on them. These seem to be sturdy and should do the job for us larger guys and gals.

Dislikes: The locking mechanisms are great but they need some tweaking before setting out. At first, I thought I was going to snap the plastic clamps off but they didnt. They work but just seem to be a weak point in the design.

Reviewed by Marquam W. - August 31, 2014

Likes: Durability, I took a decent fall off a rock scramble while hiking and planted my one pole right into a rock nook and they didn't even buckle. Visual markings for length make it very easy to find proper fit and always dial it in instantly. Locking mechanism is great and is much more reliable than the twisting mechanism found on my LEKI summit poles. Great value.

Dislikes: The mechanism which cinches the wrist strap is not great. It works, but I much much prefer the one on my LEKI which must be opened and then locks into place again so the strap won't move a millimeter.
