Black Diamond Trail Pole Features:
From casual weekend jaunts to extended backpacking trips in the mountains, the Black Diamond Trail Trekking Pole expertly balances comfort, features and affordability. Dual FlickLocks offer complete adjustability to suit the terrain, while BD's interchangeable carbide Tech Tips are easily swapped for rubber Tech Tips (sold separately) to accommodate changing trail surfaces
Bought primarily to use one as a lightweight shelter support. These poles are light enough (around 231g each) and extend to 140cm, which is longer than a lot of poles on the market. Seem very well made and come with snow baskets which simply slip on and off as needed (although there's nowhere to store them on the pole when not in use - you need to keep them in a backpack pocket or the like.
The FlickLock section locking system seems solid, although it's a little stiff and tricker to use then the Leki equivalent I'm used to.
The pole hand straps are marked L and R but the poles appear identical, so I'm not sure why they are handed in this way?
Overall a great pole which should serve my needs very well.
