Rated 5 out of 5 by from They work great The cork grips are very comfortable. They are strong. Fold up nicely. Don't weigh much at all. I knew they didn't adjust. The description doesn't claim that they do so I don't think they should get a poor review for not doing something they aren't supposed to do. Just saying. I've put these through a ton of use from Peak bagging in the Sierras, Stream crossings and Snow Shoeing. They have preformed extremely well in all conditions and continue to hold up very well after a tone of use and abuse.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from BUYER BEWARE! The metal connecting pieces WILL come loose on you causing the poles to fail. When you contact Black Diamond within the warranty period they will blow you off saying its a simple fix, just glue them. Yeah, so simple that they can't seem to manage fixing this problem at the production level. I've tried gluing them. Doesn't last more than one hike. Its a shame because IF these poles stayed together they would be my favorite choice on the market but when they fall apart they are not only useless but it takes its toll on my body for the duration of the hike in which they fail. I've used my current pair for 2-3 months. I can no longer trust them and Black Diamond won't back me up. So SAD!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Failure with no option for field repair Bought in December 2015 and have used these poles for long trips to Patagonia, Alps and recently on the John Muir Trail. One pole fractured through the metal sleeve on day 6 of a 21 day trip. Could not figure out a way to field repair and carried the broken pole the rest of the trip. I think I will stick with cam locks even thought the collapsed dimension not ideal for travel.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Brilliant concept, poor design I owned these poles for approximately a year and a half. However, I only used them on exactly 14 days of hiking/climbing over four separate trips before one of them broke. The trekking poles have a small, internally-located metal piece in between each section that keep the poles from collapsing when they are fully extended. For some reason, those inner metal pieces slide around, and, after a while, they will slide out of place, causing the pole to collapse as soon as any pressure is applied. With that being said, these poles are light, comfortable, and convenient for packing and storage. I am of the opinion, though, that, for the price tag, they should have endured longer than 14 days of use, which is why I only gave this product 2 stars.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Should have looked at these poles more closely. I'm disappointed with this product. My fault, didn't watch the video. These poles were specifically designed to not have the one thing I wanted in a trekking pole: adjustability. Hey, I now have a never-used set for sale.

Questions & Answers

How do you know what size to buy?

Asked by: evod40
The best way to determine your size is to measure the distance from your elbow to the ground while your elbow is flexed to 90 degrees. On average, sizing based on height is as follows: <5' 1": 100 cm 5' 1" – 5' 7": 110 cm 5' 8" – 5' 11": 120 cm 6' and up: 130 cm

Are the snow baskets removable, or are they a fixed feature on these poles (meant only for winter use?)

Asked by: KZick
The snow baskets can be removed.
