An easy-to-use, comfortable pole offering year-round versatility, the Trail now comes equipped with our new 360-degree padded webbing for all-day comfort. An excellent value, the Trail features glove-friendly dual FlickLocks, a non-slip foam grip with lower extension for choking down on steeper terrain, a Long Flex Tip, and both a low-profile, non-snagging trekking basket and a winter-specific powder basket. The Compact is a shorter, 125-centimeter version with a reduced grip size for smaller hands.

Comments about Black Diamond Black Diamond Trail Compact Poles (pair):

I used the poles for 16 days of trekking in Nepal. I have a problem knee joint and the poles helped not only with stability but allowed me to ease my weight down on steep stone stairs. The cam locks were quick and sure. I adjusted the length quite a bit, longer for downhill, shorter for up. The compact model is 2-3 inches shorter collapsed and fits in more luggage types. A great product. I wouldn't hike without them.
They do not have shock absorbtion, but I have used poles with this feature and I personally do not like the squishy feel and prefer a stiff pole.
