Product Highlights

With extended length natural cork grips, innovative locking mechanisms, and three adjustable carbon fiber shaft sections, Black Diamond Alpine Carbon Cork trekking poles offer lightweight performance for all-weather adventure.

Far easier to adjust than the internal locking mechanisms used by many telescoping poles, the sturdy FlickLock Pro external locks found on Alpine Carbon Cork trekking poles are ideal for use in all conditions and seasons. Black Diamond's FlickLock system couldn't be much simpler. Even if you're wearing gloves, it's a cinch to open the lock with a flip of your finger, slide the pole section to the required length and tap the lock back into place.

Alpine Carbon Cork trekking poles employ extended length grips for maximum usability. Cork construction on the upper portion of the handles provides natural texture for a confident grasp and by extending far down the poles, the grips allow you to adjust where you situate your hands without having to shorten or extend the poles each time you encounter a steep slope. Padded, adjustable webbing straps help to reduce stress on your wrists.

Press-fit Flex Tech Tips have integrated low-profile trekking baskets that provide backcountry traction. The WaveLock construction of the Flex Tech Tips allows you to choose between interchangeable carbide and rubber tip (sold separately) ends for optimal performance on varying terrain.

Sold in pairs, Black Diamond Alpine Carbon Cork trekking poles offer a usable adjustment range of 25"-51" and together weigh just 19 ounces.

    Likes: The grips are great cork with the foam underneath. The straps are superior-youslip in and have a soft feel on your skin. They are wide. The poutside pf the straps are soft to and can be used to wipe a on the face similar to the design og biking gloves. The hardware is excellent. The carbon shafts are light and have a great feel when trekking. Highly recommend.

    Dislikes: After 3 hikes have noticed some parts of the cork handle missing some bits of material here and there-will have to monitor.

    Likes: Lightweight, seems to be strong and very stiff yet absorbs some of the vibration/shock without a dedicated shock absorbing mechanism. Cork grips are very comfortable in the hand.

    Dislikes: First pair of carbon fiber poles to replace aluminum, so just a general concern about overall durability of carbon fiber, especially in rock-strewn New England. They've managed to get a few nicks on the lower shafts, but so far these appear to not have affected strength noticeably.
