Recent Trekking Pole Reviews

Black Diamond Ultra Distance

rated 4 of 5 stars Very, very, very light — and compact poles. Require bit more care. The last three years I have used and abused three section Leki poles once or twice a week in the local mountains. As I do more scrambling and running now I decided to check out the Black Diamond Ultra Distance Z-Poles, and.. kind of fell in love.  Features: The Ultra Distance poles are made of carbon shafts, and all the rest is paired down to a minimum to create the lightest pole possible. Light straps and small basket at the… Full review

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 I chose these for 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

Leki Makalu Ultralite

rated 4 of 5 stars Superbly built poles allow confident use in a variety of conditions--creek crossings, uphills, downhills, as shelter supports, etc. Leki Speedlocks work great, allowing for swift adjustment with no worries about the locks giving way. There are lighter poles out there, but these are solid, reliable, and a pleasure to use. This may be an old school review. You see, years ago Leki made the Makalu. I've had these poles for quite some time. A lot of miles in sun and rain and snow. My Leki Makalu Ultralite… Full review

Black Diamond Distance

rated 4 of 5 stars Got these at last year's summer REI Garage sale and they were never used. They have changed my hikes completely! Love these poles. They have extended my downhills and are completely worth the negligible wieght! Full review

Black Diamond Syncline

rated 4 of 5 stars Surprisingly, these hold up well when used for climbing various routes up 14'ers. Mine have never failed and the quick flick-lock adjustment is fantastic when speed is of the essence on rough routes or bad weather..etc. I'll keep using them and buying new ones as long as they are available! The upper grips work well with and without gloves...the lower sponge grips could use more outward tapering at the bases to allow your hands to "set" in place for longer climbs. Over-all, they are worth the purchase… 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

REI Hiker Shocklight Staff

rated 5 of 5 stars A sturdy lightweight staff that provides plenty of support for the backpacker who wants a hand free while hiking. When my much loved Leki Makalu Tour trekking poles finally wore out after years and miles of use, I thought I might prefer a different approach when replacing them.  I decided after much consideration, to go with a hiking staff instead of trekking poles.  I so far have not regretted my decision.  My one staff, while not super light at 10 ounces, is still lighter than two trekking… Full review
