When carbon is queen, the Alpine Carbon Cork Trekking Pole is your right (and left) hand man. In addition to the featherlite strength of carbon fiber, Black Diamond added a cork handle to absorb the impact of the tip against the trail, and a rubber extension below it so you can quickly shorten the amount of pole in use for sudden shifts in grade. Dual FlickLock Pro locks secure the pole in just the right length for you, and the poles collapse for easy packing when you want your hands free to scramble. Carbide and rubber interchangeable tips, as well as two types of baskets, allow these poles to take you across all sorts of terrain and weather conditions, with nothing but a simple switch before you leave home.
