In this video Chase Tucker from Trekking FAQs reviews some of the best hiking poles on the market – the Black Diamond Trail Ergo Cork.
👇🏻Check out the written Review Below for More Details👇🏻
Overview of the Black Diamond Trail Ergo Cork Trekking Poles:
HANDLE: The 15 degree angled ergonomic handles which give the trekking pole it’s name allow for a very natural wrist flick that brings the poles forward effortlessly, making it easier to increase cadence and get into a solid rhythm. Cork handle prevents rubbing and sweating and is very comfortable on long days. Strap is also very comfortable and easily adjustable. The foam non slip handle below the cork upper is excellent for those short increases in trail steepness.
STRUCTURE: Build with aerospace alloy, the pole structure is extremely durable, strong but very light at only 265g each. The flick lock is the main feature that I cover in the video, its incredible simple design and strong construction means a much lower chance of it breaking when you really need it. The flick lock allows for complete adjustability between 74cm and 140 cm.
TIPS & BASKETS: Inter-changable carbide tips are easily swapped for rubber tips (not included) should they be necessary, for instance if you were trekking the Inca Trail and other treks where carbide tips are not allowed.
Series : Mountain
Weight Per Pair : 510 g (1 lb 2 oz)
Usable Length : 74-140 cm (29-55 in)
Collapsed Length : 73.5 cm (29 in)

If you’re planning on doing a trek, I recommend you do some training beforehand, it’s often a lot more challenging than people expect. And after all, its a holiday! So the fitter you are the more you’ll enjoy it! But don’t forget your trekking poles!
