The Black Diamond Trail Pro Shock Pole are superb all round trekking poles that have the added benefit of a built in shock absorber that will absorb all the lumps and bumps of a rough trail taking the impact out of your wrists. The poles use 3 telescopic aluminium sections that adjust smoothly and are locked with the robust and tight FlickLock system. Unlike poles that use a twist mechanism to lock into place, there will be no slippage with the FlickLock, even when wet.
The shock mechanism is located just under the handle of the pole and is very robust. It can handle the toughest of shocks under any load and will bounce back every time, with dampeners providing progressive spring rates from light strikes to heavy downhill plants. Rebound control prevents ineffective and annoying pogo-ing for a smooth and quiet feel.
The EVA coated handles provide you with a firm and secure grip while the padded wrist straps ensure extra support. The pole comes with carbide Tech Tips but these can be replaced with rubber tips.

Purchased these Black Diamond trekking poles with my bonus points earned. They were also on offer as well.
The poles have been out already in use in Leysin in The Swiss Alps where they were used as part of my snowshoeing kit.
Very lightweight & compact but still very strong when used for real in the hills.
The waist support straps are very comfortable and easy to adjust when needed. The foam padding on the upper part of the walking poles is already very comfortable to use for a prolonged period of time.
All in all for the price I paid for these poles I am very happy and would recommend them to anybody who is out looking for a pair of good quality trekking poles - 10 out of 10!
