Straight from the top shelf, the Black Diamond Trail Pro Shock Trekking Pole is armed with all the latest technologies Black Diamond has to offer in their trail pole series.
Control Shock Technology™ offers progressive four stage shock absorption and a smooth rebound on any terrain without bottoming out. Interchangeable carbide WaveLock™ Tech Tips enable separate rubber tips to be purchased for use in hard or urban environments.
Also equipped with the ultimately reliable FlickLock™ Pro locking mechanism, extended non-slip foam grip and fully padded webbing straps, the Trail Shock Pro is a no-compromise trekking pole.
These poles are great with taking some punishment for the wrists and I found the locking system the easiest I've used. I started an over night walk with a group and one of the ladies was struggling with the weight of her pack and found it difficult to walk so I lent her one of my poles enabling her to complete the walk over hilly terrain. Even with using just one of these poles made a difference with a 12 kg pack plus water. I'm impressed
Amazing quality and reliable lock system. Cheap and delivered quickly by Snowys... as usual! Only thing is that it can sometimes be tricky to order replacing or different type of tips. Stable, strong and not too heavy, great product for hiking and snowshoeing.
I was wondering besides the color what is the difference between the men's and women's trekking poles?
The only difference between the men and women Black Diamond Trail Pro Shock Trekking Poles is that the women's handle is a little shorter and they are different colours. That's it.
Are you able to be a little more specific about which Original Trail Shock Poles you're referring to? Do you have a time period I can work with?
Sorry Ben, I'm just wanting to know if they're exactly the same as the Trail Shock poles released around 2010 (I think the Trail Shock were superseded by the Trail Pro Shock poles). Are they the same or do the Trail Pro Shock provide extra features? Thanks
This is a tough one as I can't obtain much information on the specifications from 2010. However, from my research, the upgrades appear to include improvements to the double flicklock pole adjustment mechanism, reinforced control shock technology and the interchangeable wavelock tech tips.
The model below these mentions them being included, do these also?
Unfortunately, the Black Diamond Trail Pro Shock Poles don't include powder baskets. The only Trekking Poles to come with them included are as you noted, the model below - the Black Diamond Trail Trekking Poles. However, we can make an enquiry with Black Diamond if you like to see if we can obtain them as a spare part?
