Details

With extended length natural cork grips, innovative locking mechanisms, and three adjustable carbon fiber shaft sections, Black Diamond Alpine Carbon 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 external locks found on Alpine Carbon 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 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 trekking poles offer a usable adjustment range of 25"-51" and together weigh just 17 ounces.

  • Natural cork grip with dual-density top and 360-degree Nubuck strap
  • Non-slip EVA foam grip extension
  • 100% carbon fiber construction
  • 3-section shaft with dual FlickLock adjustability
  • Interchangeable carbide Tech Tips, low-profile Trekking Baskets and Powder Baskets

Robust and reliable, love them

Likes: Excellent. Gave them very hard use on a 6 day winter crossing of the Overland Track in Tasmania. Deep soft snow, rough mixed ground, often taking full body weight and sharp shock. These poles were perfect, they would snap back instantly if bent over when the point stuck in rocks or timber, the locks never slipped despite putting full body weight on the poles. Still look almost brand new and suffered zero damage, apart from normal wear and tear the spike and basket being worn. Very comfortable to use.

Dislikes: Nothing, these were the best poles I have used.
Most of the poles used by the rest of our group failed to varying degrees, the DB Carbons just worked, thats all you can ask.
