The Black Diamond Trail Ergo Cork Trekking Poles are a set of trekking poles for making the hiking trip easier. Stability and relieving some of the pack weight from your knees are just what the poles are ready for. Starting with your hands, the ergonomic angle in the grip increases comfort while the cork wicks moisture from your palms quickly. A wrist strap on each ensures your poles stay close, in case you need to let go to catch a fall, scramble a little, or scratch your nose. The double FlickLocks make height adjustments quick and collapsing even faster so you can spend time soaking in nature instead of messing with your gear.
FEATURES of the Black Diamond Ergo Cork Trekking Pole-Pair
A versatile pole with an ergonomically-angled grip with natural cork.
Cork Grips: insulating, lightweight and moisture wicking.
If the product name has the word "pair" in it, that means it comes with TWO trekking poles. If the product name says "single" or has options to select a size, it means that particular style only comes with ONE trekking pole. Sorry to be so confusing. Please don't hate me.

Excellent polesThese poles carried me from Springer to Katahdin last summer, and they did it with style. The cork grips are wonderful in your hand, and the very slight tilt of the grip gives the poles a natural feel. I broke a tip in the Pennsylvania rocks, but thankfully black diamond offers a full line of replacement parts for their poles. Baskets, straps, tips, and even the flick locks are all replaceable. The locks worked well, although every 400 miles or so I had to tighten one of them up with a screwdriver, as it would slowly slide down if the poles were wet. This could have been remedied by putting some more loc-tite on the screw to prevent it from wiggling loose. These poles aren't the lightest on the market, but they are a good bang for your buck, and I think that they will serve me well for many years to come.

Lightweight and CompactCarbide Tech Tips show no wear after my 2,500 foot ascent/decent prevalent with rocky terrain despite heavy use. Double Flick Locks make adjusting the lengths simple, with measurements printed into the shafts in centimeters. Ergo cork handles are at a 15 degree angle for comfort, but can accumulate water in wet or rainy conditions. Additional powder baskets are simple to screw on in a jiffy should they be needed. Sections of the shaft can be separated entirely for drying/cleaning.

Feels great in my handI bought this a couple weeks ago but i truly have not put them to a test on the trail yet. They have been able to withstand my entire body weight while being extended.
How long is the trekking pole when it is collapsed to its shortest length? Determining the shortest collapsed length will allow me to determine whether the pole will fit into my Osprey 50 backpack as carry-on luggage. Thanks,

Any suggestions for finding a replacement to the last two-section extensions for one of my two, three-sectioned trail ergo cork poles? They're not available at BD right now.

Thanks for reaching out to Moosejaw! Unfortunately, the best suggestion would be to contact Black Diamond directly, which you already did. Maybe you can find a used pair and swap the bad one out and keep the other for backup... If not, it looks like you might have to consider buying another pair. So sorry.
