Black Diamond designed its Kids' First Strike Trekking Pole primarily for trekking, but your young adventurer can also use it for ski sessions. Its aluminum shaft makes the pole incredibly lightweight so your little trekker doesn't feel weighed down near the end of the hike. The foam grip adds a bit of insulation to help warm your kid's hand up in winter, and its 360° padded webbing strap makes each pole specific to his or her left and right hands. One FlickLock clamp adjusts the pole for easy transport and for steep uphill and downhill hikes, and the Tech Tips are interchangeable with rubber or carbide tips depending on the terrain your little traveler is exploring.
Hiking with poles isn't just for hardcore adventurers, old fogies with bad knees, or lightweight fanatics; thanks to the Black Diamond Kids’ First Strike Trekking Poles, your young hiker can enjoy the added support, stability, and endurance benefits that come with a quality set of weight-distributing trekking poles.

Great XMAS present

My 5 year old great nephew, 6 year old great niece and 8 year old great niece loved using the trekking poles on a New Years day hike. My 3 year old great niece had problems at times her hands were a bit to small. But overall they really enjoyed them with the added stabilty they gave on the terrain we were on. Hiked 2 miles on hilly terrain with mostly packed snow and ice.

My oldest son loved this and the other boys wanted them too. Easy to extend, sturdy, good grips. Helped on uneven terrain. Pricey for kids but seems like a quality product.
