Carrying avy gear in the backcountry is a must. Carrying extra gear isn't. The super-light Black Diamond Carbon Probe Ski Pole serves dual duty as a beefy freeride ski pole and a rigid avalanche probe. Send the biggest lines with full trust in your poles, and if things take a serious turn, quickly screw the carbon lower shafts together to form a 182cm probe. The grips are designed with an aggressive hook point at the top that aides in leveraging bars, buckles, and heel risers, and the straps are designed to stay open for an easy entry. The generous 100mm (4 in) powder baskets provide ample float in the deep stuff.
One tool for two jobs, the Black Diamond Carbon Probe pulls double duty as both a ski pole and an avalanche probe. In addition to its stiff, lightweight design and Freeride Series grip and strap, the pole's two carbon fiber lowers work in tandem to create a 182 cm probe, making it an ideal backcountry freeride tool. BD also added a new low-profile FlickLock Pro locking mechanism for dramatic improvements in clamping force.
