Updated for 2014! Offering trusted performance at a wallet-friendly price, Black Diamond Trail trekking poles offer innovative features rarely found on poles in this cost range. Easy-to-adjust external locks, extended length grips and aluminum construction combine to make Trail trekking poles a true bargain. Far easier to adjust than the internal locking mechanisms used by many telescoping poles, the external locks found on Trail 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. Dual density foam grips provide contoured, comfortable handholds. These textured grips extend far down the upper pole sections, allowing you to adjust where you grasp the Trail poles while eliminating the need 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 trekking poles offer a usable adjustment range of 25'-55' and together weigh 17 ounces. 112154

Trekking Poles, or walking poles, are available in a wide range of styles, with a wide range of prices.
There are many features to consider other than the obvious size and style which can demand higher prices.
Most of the features are designed to improve comfort by using clever angles or by using special technology to absorb shocks or cushion the contact.
A very important consideration is the type of terrain over which you will be using the trekking poles. Different tips are used for different terrains. Some are designed to dig into soft terrain to prevent slipping, whilst others are designed for heavy wear on hard surfaces and roads. Using the wrong tip for the terrain can make the trekking poles almost completely useless, so make sure that the pole you choose is suitable for the terrain in which it will be needed.
A lot of poles have interchangeable tips so that you can change the tips for use on different terrains. This gives the greatest versatility.
