Most good trekking requires travel through rough terrain, and while moving through ragged boulder fields, mushy swamps, or steep scree will certainly slow you down, it shouldn’t make you turn around. You’ll be able to power through the tough spots like a champ with the help of the Black Diamond Trail Pro Trekking Poles, which feature a tough aluminum shaft and new FlickLock Pro extension system, made of stainless steel to increase clamping force and durability. Whatever terrain you find yourself in, you’ll be steady and sure-footed, courtesy of interchangeable rubber and carbide tips, a dual-density grip, and foam grip extension that’s ideal for switchbacks and steep trails. The Trail Pro weighs in at a measly 1. 5 lbs per pair, so you’ll hardly even notice them in your hands or lashed to your pack.
