Recent Antishock Trekking Pole Reviews

Komperdell Men's C3 Airshock

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I like them. Low shock, strong, light, fully disassemble to pack nicely. I liked mine enough to get two pairs just in case they were discontinued. The problem with locking is very easy to fix. Pull the plastic collar toward the pole tip to expose the joint.  Pull the lower section out and wipe away any dust and grit with a clean damp cloth. Insert the expanding bolt/joint 80% back into the larger section and twist-tighten the expansion bolt until it is almost too tight inside the larger section… Full review

Mountainsmith Pyrite 7075

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Vast improvements over last year's model. Cork grips, better carbide tips, and ability to lock out the shock absorber have been added. I felt compelled to write this review because I own the last year's model and bought a pair of this year's model of the Pyrite 7075 for a through hike of the John Muir Trail. Last year's model had rubber grips and a high wear rate on the carbide tips during moderate hiking in Alabama. Also, the shock absorber was full-time and could not be turned off. The locks always… Full review

Black Diamond Contour Elliptic Shock

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Most comfortable, lightweight trekking poles I have ever used. No slippage whatsoever with their awesome locking mechanism. The hand straps are adjustable and wider, much more comfortable then others I have owned. The grips are very comfortable, which is what makes them great as I have some issues with my hands aching after a long hike. So far none with these. Once you adjust the pole length the locking mechanism holds tight with no slipping or readjusting necessary. The shocks work great and… Full review

Black Diamond Unisex Trail Shock

rated 5 of 5 stars Sturdy, lightweight hiking poles that utilize Black Diamond's FlickLock technology for securing the poles to whatever length you need for all terrain. I decided to replace my 12-year-old set of hiking poles because the twist mechanism inside the shaft kept slipping on one of them. I took it apart and super glued it the locking mechanism back together because it had split in half, but at that point I started wondering when the other pole would do the same thing or when the glue on my repair would… Full review

Leki Trail Antishock

rated 5 of 5 stars Excellent product, light and strong. In my research I ran across the other review on this page. Read what he wrote and take it to heart. These are great poles at a great price. While I've only had them for a month they've seen rock, dirt, rain and snow and I couldn't be happier with the purchase. While the grips are composite they feel very comfortable in my hands although I wish they had a touch more thickness. But I also have larger hands so this probably won't be an issue for most. The straps,… Full review

Black Diamond Unisex Trail Shock

rated 5 of 5 stars Great poles, they look great and are easy to use. Bought these to replace my aging twist lock poles. The wrist straps are very comfortable as are the the grips. The cam locks hold well. They didn't come with rubber tips or snow baskets but are still worth the price. I would recommend them to anyone who wants a lightweight trekking pole. Full review

Leki Super Makalu COR-TEC PA AS

rated 3.5 of 5 stars I've been using Leki Super Makalu COR-TEC PA AS trekking poles for about 5 years now and I haven't had any issues with them breaking or coming apart at the worse possible time. I like the 15 degree angled handles, the feel of the cork and the ability to adjust the wrist straps with the dial adjuster that sits on top of each handle. The anti-shock system works great too and can be set to non-anti-shock as well. Very nice. We use them primarily for approach hikes to 14'ers and smaller peaks. Very… Full review

Black Diamond Women's Trail Shock

rated 5 of 5 stars Great lightweight poles. I used these heavily on a 7-day trek in the Alps and they were very helpful. Of my group, I had the lightest poles and the easiest to collapse. Highly recommend (plus they look great)! Once I adjusted the height I was able to keep them at the correct height, and then easily collapse or open up to the set height in a few seconds. I liked the multiple options for where to grip so I could easily adjust depending on if I was on an incline or decline. Locking: Easy to use mechanisms… Full review

Leki Cressida Aergon Antishock SpeedLock

rated 5 of 5 stars Excellent hiking pole designed for women, great grips, effective anti-shock. My wife just switched over to these Woman's Leki Cressida Antishock trekking poles for daily hikes on the 2 lane country (asphalt) roads that surround our land. I am now using the very similar Men's Leki Corklite Antishock trekking poles. The all cork grip on the Women's Leki Cressida is slightly softer and more hand friendly than the composite cork and rubber grip on the Men's Corklite pole. The anti-shock system works… Full review
