A lightweight, do-anything pole with premium shock absorption thanks to our Control Shock Technology™, The Black Diamond Trail Shock Compact Trekking Pole is a shorter, smaller-grip version of our Trail Shock and handles a short hike on the local trail as easily as a week-long trek on the Continental Divide. Control Shock Technology gives the pole progressive absorption and controlled rebound under any load, and dual FlickLock adjustments let you customize the pole length for any situation. The Trail Shock also features our interchangeable carbide Tech Tips, which can easily be swapped for our rubber Tech Tips (sold separately) to accommodate different trail surfaces..
CONTROL SHOCK TECHNOLOGY
Offering damp and progressive 4-stage shock absorption, Control Shock Technology handles hard compressions without bottoming out and controls rebound for a smooth and comfortable feel.
Dampeners beneath the grip provide progressive spring rates from light strikes to heavy downhill plants. Rebound control located within the grip prevents ineffective and annoying pogo-ing for a smooth and quiet feel.
