Here's what other sites are saying:
The Black Diamond Contour Elliptic Compact Trekking Poles are a shorter, smaller-grip version of our Contour Elliptic and is equally adept on snow, dirt, rock and any other trail surface you'll encounter.
Black Diamond's Contour Elliptic Pole's oblong shape increases the stiffness of the pole making it a great 4-season trekker. The FlickLock closure system holds the poles securely and allows for them to be telescoped into the handle for a smaller packing size. Interchangeable tips and baskets make certain that you get the best grip on any surface you are travelling on. The Compact version has a reduced grip size and shorter length to accommodate the ergonomics of smaller people.
