The Black Diamond Trail Compact Trekking Pole is a shorter, smaller-grip version of our Trail pole and expertly balances comfort, features and affordability.
We humans made a compromise when we decided to run with the whole bipedal locomotion thing. We were finally able to to do the running man, but we lost the ability to cover ground quickly with the power and balance of four limbs. The Trail Compact Trekking Poles uses high tech materials and a high-tech design to give you the power and stability of moving with of all of your limbs.
These poles are the complete package. The Trail Compact from Black Diamond offers comfort and functionality at an affordable price. Extended foam grips allow for alternate hand placements on uneven terrain. Double flick locks hold securely and collapse down to fit nicely inside your pack when you don't need the extra stability. You can prepare yourself for any terrain with interchangeable tips and baskets. The Compact is 125 cm long and has a smaller grip than its brother the Trail.
