Conehead Whippet Spike


In Stock

Free shipping over $50

Tired of deciding whether to bring an ice axe along with your Whippet or Whippets? Well, Black Diamond has the answer: bring the Whippet(s) and a Conehead(s). Coneheads convert any Black Diamond Whippet into a tool you can plunge into the snow. Just remove the lower section of your pole and slide in a Conehead, and whala!! You now have a tool to plunge like an axe. They come with a handy bungee to secure to your pole or pack when not in use.

Coneheads come in two sizes so you can use them in any generation Whippet (or other pole).

Large - 16mm Outside Diameter fits recent generation Whippets including the latest line with detachable heads (24g). Also fits the Travers WR 2 poles.

Small - 14mm Outside Diameter matches (much) older Whippets (18g) .

Question from Eric S
Will these guys fit on the Traverse W2 Pole? And if so, does it make sense? Or are these really designed only for the three-piece Whippet pole?

Answer from Teddy Young
Hey Eric, it will fit into the bottom end of the upper sections of the Travers WR 2, the Whippet, and the Carbon Whippet. The current aluminum Whippet is 3 sections and would be 2.5 inches shorter in total length compared to the other 2 section poles.

(20 inches vs 22.5 inches length excluding whippet head and conehead)
