Black Diamond Alpine Carbon Cork WR Pole


Out For Season - Notify Me

The trekking poles of yesteryear were pretty much glorified alpine ski poles, with no adjustability, shock absorption, or extra features. With the recent innovation in the world of trekking and fastpacking, however, the paradigm has flipped and now ski poles are taking their cues from the hiking world. Black Diamond's Alpine Carbon Cork WR poles mesh the two worlds together nicely with three-segment adjustability, swappable winter/summer tips, and an adapter on top of the handle to attach a Whippet or Alpine Whippet. The poles will shrink down small enough to stick on your pack for spring approaches on dry dirt, then expand up to 130cm for skinning up your objective. And when the snow melts away altogether and you're zipping around the high country in shorts, you can take the Alpine Carbon Cork poles with you for stability and impact protection while hiking, use it instead of a pole as part of your ultralight tent or tarp setup, and still attach a Whippet for booting across those lingering snowfields.

  • Designed for dry-season hikes as well as winter exploits.
  • Comes stock with a 38mm wide "trekking basket."
  • For deep snow, add a 100mm powder basket for extra flotation.
  • Swappable carbide and rubber tips allows versatility on the trail and the skintrack alike.
  • Whippet-compatible for self-arrest usage, summer hikes across snowfields, or visits to the Chuting Gallery.
