The carbon fiber and folding designs presented above are impressive innovations, but for hikers who want a pair of trusted sticks at a reasonable price, we recommend the Black Diamond Ergo Cork Trail. They are a safe bet and do the job very well.
Their all-aluminum design makes them a little heavier than their competitors presented just above, but also makes them extremely robust in any situation. Whether it’s for traveling, hiking in dirt, rock, and snow, they are sturdy.
The sticks are also equipped with ergonomic and comfortable cork handles (the signature of Black Diamond).
For travelers, climbers, or those who give priority to stick size when folded, the minimum length of 75 centimeters can be problematic. The sticks will not interfere when they are attached to the outside of a bag, but keep in mind that the sticks are 5 to 10 cm longer than most other 3-section models.
The flaws of his sticks are pretty insignificant for most of his users. In three words: simplicity, durability, and strength. BLACK DIAMOND Trail Ergo stands out as the favorite choice in aluminum sticks as well as regarding price/quality ratio
