ABOUT BLACK DIAMOND
Black Diamond is all about climbing and skiing. The company traces its roots back to 1957, when pioneering rock climber Yvon Chouinard started making pitons on a backyard anvil. In 1989, Chouinard Equipment Ltd. became Black Diamond Equipment, and these days the company offers a vast array of equipment for all kinds of mountain activities.
Here at GearX.com, we sell more Black Diamond items than any other brand. From avalanche gear to Z-Poles, Black Diamond has the right tools for your adventure.
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.
A good first pole for your little ones, the First Strike Pole from Black Diamond is an adjustable youth pole with 2 sections, a smaller grip for little hands and fun graphics. Your child can learn to how to set the poles for their height according to the sizing increments and they can easily adjust the FlickLock mechanism into the locked position.
Built for young adventurers, Black Diamond First Strike Youth trekking poles offer grown-up performance in a youth-friendly size. These lightweight, durable aluminum trekking poles offer 2-section adjustability and reliability.

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.
