The Vapor Carbon 1 is a simple, strong pole that has an extended grip for choking up on skin tracks. Made with 100% carbon fiber, the pole is ultralight and stiff which makes it great for racing and efficient touring. The poles have adjustable hand straps and sharp, hardened tips for breaking through crust. Black Diamond includes two sets of baskets with the set of poles so you can adapt to your snowpack. Sold in pairs.
Update 19/20: BD added glass fibers to the shaft construction to increase strength, a soft foam grip for comfort, and some sticky rubber on the handle top to make toe levers easier to latch onto.
