The Black Diamond Trail Ergo Cork offers comprehensive adjustment options and a hard-wearing design. This powerful pole is suitable for short day trips up to trekking tours lasting several days in Nepal. With the two Flicklock pro closures, the pole can be quickly and safely adjusted to different conditions. The dual-density handle and padded hand loops as well as a foam handle extension enable user-friendly handling at any time of the year. The included Trekking and Snow baskets makes the trekking pole usable all year round.
FlickLock Pro is the evolution of our trusted FlickLock design. The benefits that made FlickLock the pole-locking mechanism on the market remain: it's secure, fast and easy to use. The FlickLock Pro's low-profile, stainless steel design, however, provides a dramatic improvement in quality, feel and clamping force.

They're not the lightest poles on the market (though they're extremely light), but if you need trekking poles, and you want them to be collapsible, these are the ones to get.
According to Black Diamond, they had a supply chain issue, and the Carbon Cork trekking poles with "Flick Lock Pro" locking mechanisms were shipped in limited quantities only to REI. During this time, other sellers like Amazon and Black Diamond themselves stocked a version with inferior plastic flick locks which according to Amazon reviews were plagued with issues. The issue has apparently been fixed, and I'm so glad I waited - the metal flick locks on this model are superior.
Do yourself a favor and don't go with twist lock poles - the locking mechanism just doesn't work as well and they'll slip on you. A readjustment every once in awhile to get them back to the height you want them might seem OK, but at the end of the day you're trusting these things to support your weight and slippage from inferior locking mechanisms is a safety issue (not to mention how difficult they can be to adjust with sweaty hands). To me, it's worth spending the extra coin for flick locks, and these poles are the best on the market.
This pair of poles weighs 1lb 2.6oz on my kitchen scale, which is a small weight price to pay if you're somebody who needs (due to bad knees) or likes (due to them making you feel more like a four-legged animal on the trail) trekking poles. Worth the buy.
