Updated for 2013! Weighing just 9 ounces and collapsing to a mere 23 inches in length, the Black Diamond Alpine Carbon Solo is an ultra-lightweight staff. Whether you use it for added stability or use it as a tent pole for a lightweight tarp, the Alpine Carbon Solo provides backcountry versatility without weighing you down.
Far easier to adjust than the internal locking mechanisms used by many telescoping poles, the sturdy FlickLock Pro external locks found on the Alpine Carbon Solo 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.
A foam grip with a textured cork top provides a confident hand hold. A padded, adjustable webbing strap helps to reduce stress on your wrist.
A press-fit Flex Tech Tip has an integrated low-profile trekking basket that provides backcountry traction. The WaveLock construction of the Flex Tech Tip allows you to choose between an interchangeable carbide and rubber tip (sold separately) for optimal performance on varying terrain.
Sold individually, the Black Diamond Alpine Carbon Solo offers a usable adjustment range of 23"-45".
