Quality without frills, the Black Diamond Trail Back Trekking Pole combines high-performance materials with necessary features to get you on the trail without breaking the bank.
Maintaining durable 7075 aluminium shafts and the reliable FlickLock™ mechanism, the Trail Back is otherwise simplified with a rubber handle, basic carbide tip and nylon webbing straps.
Complete with low profile trekking basket, the Trail Back Trekking Poles are affordable and durable trekking poles for any terrain.
Great product, fast delivery time.
I just completed the Larapinta trail with them, I found them very helpful for the full pack walk in harsh terrain.
Such a quick delivery time! Poles are going well! Thanks!
Easy to set up and very comfortable to use
Poles are great, just completed the Kokoda track and they were fantastic
These were invaluable on a recent walking holiday in the UK. Especially on narrow slippery tracks, where I felt more comfortable having that extra stability or on steep descents, saving the stress on the knees. I'm a convert and really missed them on another recent trip tackling some US climbs. Very affordable price from Snowy's
Also doubles as a decent weapon. If you fully collapse it, it has enough mass to smack heads. I keep in my car and the other next to my bed.
Fantastic product !!! Lightweight and grips are solid. Quick locking mechanism is easy to use. I'm having fun using them and I'm confident they'll do a great job when I tackle Kokoda in September 🏃👍😊
Took these on the Oxfam trailwalker and they were an absolute life saver. Saw a bunch of people throwing their cheap alternatives away during the walk because their poles kept slipping out, but the lock mechanism on these is excellent and I had no issues at all.
Any chance these will be in soon? I have a hike in four weeks and would like a set. Cheers
It looks like our supplier is currently out of stock. They're expecting more to land late this month, but it could be a few weeks after that before we actually see any stock in our warehouse. So we might be cutting it a bit fine for you sorry. The Leki Tuscan would be a good alternative, or if you can stretch the budget a little look at the Black Diamond Trail poles. They have a much nicer grip than the Trail Back and are worth the bump in price.
Bad news, I'm sorry to say. Black Diamond only sell pairs of all their trekking poles, so we can't even get a single one in for you. The best I could suggest would be to get a new pair and keep one aside in case you ever have another breakage.
hi I am 6 foot 2 inches/ 188 cm with 'long legs'. Are all the poles one size fits all? Or could you suggest a suitable size Thanks
As a fellow tall person, I feel your pain when it comes to things like this! The good news is that the Black Diamond Trail Back Trekking Poles are adjustable so you can adjust it right up to about 143cm high. This should make them a comfortable height for us tall fellas.
Thinking of getting these for my girlfriend as we're head on a hiking trip soon. Just wondering when the next load of stock will be in?
We've got a stack of these on order with an eta of mid-September. That's the best estimate I can give you at the moment. We'll take the out of stock notification down as soon as we have stock in our warehouse.
Hi is the new stock still on track for early August? Looking to get some other products as well but will hold off if I can get it all shipped at same time?
To the best of my knowledge, the Black Diamond Trail Back trekking poles are due back into stock in early August. You're welcome to place an order now if you like and we can ship whats currently available and follow that with the poles when they arrive back in store here. What ever works best for you!
Hi, I am only 153cm tall, would these be suitable for my height. I am doing Kokoda in October. If not could you advise on another brand/style that would be suitable. thank you
I've just grabbed a Black Diamond Trail Back hiking pole and the minimum height I can set it to is approximately 75cm. I reckon this should work for you!
Hi i was wondering if u could please tell me how much weight the poles will handle? Thanks.
Great question. From undertaking some research, Black Diamond unfortunately don't provide a weight rating. However, independent reviewers have done some testing (can't vouch for how credible) on the Flicklock Mechanisms and the most common response is around 150kg load resistance on these connections.
Is the price per 1 pole? Is tge weight per pole as well?
I do apologise about the confusing name, but yes the Black Diamond Trail Back definitely comes in a pair (I checked the stock to be sure).
I'll make sure the name is changed to prevent further confusion Martin. The weight on the packaging of these poles says 562g so individually they'd be 281g per pole.
The 2016 edition comes with extra gripping areas below the hand grip. Is your current stock the 2015 edition from these photos, or has the photo not been updated since you received the latest ones? Thanks
Hi there, Are these trekking poles a pair or only a single pole?
Understandable that you'd be confused given the fact they mislabelled the item as "Tail Back Trekking Pole" But yes, these definitely come in pairs.
