Our Review - Black Diamond Trail Pro Shock Trekking Poles:
The Black Diamond Trail Pro Shock Trekking Poles are a rugged and all-purpose, 4-season trekking pole from Black Diamond. The Trail Pro Shock the Black Diamond Control Shock Technology system located in the grip and provides progressive four-stage shock absorption with smooth rebound control on even the most rugged trails.
For quick deployment and collapsibility, the Trail Pro Shock uses the new SmashLock quick-release technology mechanism which allows you to quickly deploy the telescoping pole and lock it into place with an easy-to-hear click (keep the FlickLock Pro closed during deployment). Then, with the FlickLock Pro open, swiftly and firmly press the tip of the pole into the trail to release the SmashLock for a quick collapse. The redesigned FlickLock Pro adjustability is now lighter, stronger, and easier to use, while featuring a forged aluminium construction.
Alongside the anti-shock system and the quick adjustments, the Black Diamond Trail Pro Shock Trekking Poles has a high specification. The dual-density grip has been updated with a softer rubber and smoother, more comfortable design, while the new solution strap draws inspiration from our harness technology for better security around the wrist and better handling when tackling steep terrain.
