Black Diamond Trekking Poles are a great choice of hiking poles for any season and make an excellent addition to your backpacking equipment. Hiking trekking poles in general are my new "must have" hiking gear.

Some of the great features of hiking poles are the increase of stability and balance they offer. Adding poles to your hiking gear will also help to protect your joints as you hike downhill as your arms will bear more weight and there will be less impact on your knees.

Black Diamond Trekking Poles are universally renowned for their high quality products and have a very rich background in the outdoor world. Black Diamond now has three headquarters located in North America, Europe and Asia.

Black Diamond hiking poles are made with carbon fibre shafts making them incredibly lightweight and comfortable. The design of their hiking trekking poles maximizes pole collapsibility, optimizes swing weight and they are extremely quiet.

Black Diamond hiking poles also use their Flicklock pole locking mechanism which provides a visual security that shows you when the hiking pole is locked in place.

Black Diamond has a great reputation for innovative equipment and quality gear and this goes without saying with their trekking poles as well.
